*See below for details on these specific events

Youth Group - A “normal” night in our ministry includes games, large group teaching, sharing a meal together, and our favorite thing we do: small groups. For 30-40 mins each youth group, we gather students (7th-12th grade) in age and gender specific small groups with at least 1 adult leader. It's a time for real conversation, being yourself, sharing life's highs/ lows, encouraging each other, asking tough questions, and discussing together what it means to love like Jesus. There's nothing else like it.

Paint & Pray Night - Special guest art teachers Elizabeth and Luke Gawron (from our Young Adult Group) will lead an interactive prayer reflection for all Kids+Youth using a variety of art mediums. Super excited for this! They are fantastic artists and teachers.

Battleball Tournament and Worship Night - A giant tournament (15+ teams) of church youth groups compete in a dodgeball tournament with mini-nerf soccer balls. It’s crazy fun! Join our Youth Group's team: M.L.B. (Major League Believers). Salt N’ Light leads a Worship Night following the tournament with music, creative arts pieces, and a message. Lunch at 11:30am in Chocolatetown Park by the church and arrive back around 9pm. Cost is $10/player. Signup here. For the Worship Night only, meet @ 5:15pm in the parking lot. We’ll have transportation to Otterbein UMC in Carlisle. Learn more about Battleball here.

Spring Clean-Up - An annual tradition! We’ll go to various homes of congregants and neighbors in our community to do yard/house work they would not be able to do themselves. Event start time 3:30pm, and will conclude with a meal around 6:30pm back at the church.

Lock-In - Have you ever slept over at the church? Now’s your chance. Games, food, karaoke, and an off-campus service project on Saturday. Signup here. Details to come!

Church Picnic - All church members are invited to join us @ Camp Catherine to celebrate the end of the school year and the new confirmation class! Stay tuned on how we’re doing food!
