Church Picnic - To celebrate the end of the school year as a church, we're having a picnic (for all ages) on June 13th 5-8pm @ Camp Catherine. We'll have games, a time to recognize kids+youth moving up to a new program or graduating, and a worship concert by the Salt N' Light band (!) to finish off this special event! Bring a friend! ALL are welcome!!

Pool Parties and Game Nights – The evening version of Summer Wednesdays: gatherings at the homes of leaders and families in our youth ministry for swimming, games, and dinner together! We’ll be asking youth to bring a snack or drink to share when they come. Friends are welcome!

Local Mission Camp – A day camp (~ 9am-9pm) of partnering with local mission organizations for youth and young adults (6th grade – 22 year olds). During the day we’ll be serving at Bethesda Mission, Milk & Honey Farms, Mission Central or another location. In the evening we’ll have a meal together, reflection and discussion, games, campfires, swimming in the creek, a pool night, etc. Cost is $50/student and sign-up deadline is 6/20.

Impact – An overnight camping retreat for 7th-12th graders! Salt N’ Light hosts this Zeteo-like outdoor event at Camp Greene Hills. 7 main stage gatherings with dramas, speakers, worship, concerts etc. We cook meals together, gather around the campfire for deep talks, and have LOTS of free time for tubing, slip n’ slides, rec games. Here is a promo video: https://snlym.com/events/impact/. Cost is $70 and sign-up deadline is 7/11.

VBS Rocky Railway – VBS is back @ FUMC Hershey! During this week in August, we’d like to see our youth ministry support this important outreach event. There a number of different roles youth can take. Contact Stephen Haverstick or Cassie McCachren ( ) by 7/11 if you’re interested in volunteering.
