ALES YOUTH GROUP
Hey High Schoolers and Junior High Schoolers!
We will be kicking off the new year of youth ministry
Join us for a picnic!
Sunday, September 29th
5-8 p.m. at Emmanuel.
Parents and siblings are invited and encouraged to attend so that Pastor J.J. and the youth group facilitators get to know the families of our youth and so the families get to know us.
Our regular meetings will be held on the fourth Sunday of each month starting October 27th .
We are trying something different this year. Confirmation class will be held from 4:45 to 5:45, followed by dinner at 6pm and the activity planned for that evening, ending at 8 p.m. We will share and discuss our plan for the year of activities and service projects at the picnic, so please try to attend. We are looking forward to making youth group a fun and enriching activity
