    Church Picnic - All ages are invited to join us @ Fox Creek Farm (120 Fox Rd. Palmyra) 5-8pm to celebrate the end of the school year and our high school grads! There'll be Kan Jam, cornhole, volleyball, messy group games, and plenty of time to hangout together. This is a bring your own food event. Drinks and dessert will be provided! Look for a sign/balloons at the parking entrance just beyond the address listed. Friends are welcome - you do not have to be a member of the church to come!

    Crepes & Chill – One version of Summer Wednesdays: hangouts @ Chocolatetown Park (right next to the church parking lot) with some crepes! Devotionals and games. Bring $7 for a crepe if you want one. Come whenever you can!

    Pool Parties and Game Nights – Another 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 – All ages 12+ are welcome for select days of partnering with local ministries/organizations for Kingdom work of love and compassion. Join us for any/all of these events! Some days have a participant limit. Signup here. A meal and discussion will be a part of each event.

    Impact – Do you wish you didn’t have to wait a full year for Zeteo? Impact combines powerful worship sessions, elaborate dramas + dances, hilarious on-stage games, breakout seminars, fun outdoor activities, and life-changing speakers with bonding times of small groups and campfire discussions. Our youth have described it as a "taste of Heaven." We leave Wednesday morning and return Sunday afternoon. Check out the highlight video. Cost for students is $110 till 5/31. Price goes up $5 each month until deadline on 7/16. 50% scholarships are available.

    VBS Monumental – We’d like to see our youth ministry support this important outreach event by having students serve as game station assistants. Signup here if you’re interested in volunteering.
