The Youth Group (students in grades 6-12) meets from 12-2 pm on the second Sunday of each month.  The meeting consists of pizza, games, and a lesson with lots of time for discussion. They are currently studying “Call of Conscience Journal” as they look at the peace stance of the Church of the Brethren.

Throughout the year, they participate in various activities including:

  • Swim Party: Each summer, the Youth celebrate the incoming and outgoing youth group members with a swim party, hosted by one of the members of our congregation.  There’s food and games and, of course, swimming!
  • Fellowship Meal Fundraisers: One of our favorite ways to raise funds is to host meals for the congregation.  Most recently, we hosted a Soup & Salad Fundraiser after worship.
  • Fall Retreat: To help welcome and acclimate the newest members, the Youth Group goes ‘up to the woods’ to the Godfrey’s cabin for a retreat.  They enjoy getting to know each other through games, discussion, and study.
  • National Youth Conference: Every 4 years, the Church of the Brethren holds a National Youth Conference in Colorado.  Three youth and two advisers will be traveling there in July 2018.
  • Work Camps: In June of 2013 the youth and Pastor Gerry traveled to Crozet, Virgina to provide service on the grounds of Innisfree Village
