April 2021 plus looking ahead Youth Schedule for Christ UMC, Selinsgrove, PA:
Sunday, April 11 from 6pm to 7:30pm outside and with food ~ We will be eating Dominos, playing outside and doing devotions all at the Outdoor Worship Center (OWC)/Pavilion

Looking at a Possible Wesley Forest Day on Sunday, May 23 from 1pm to 5pm (for the whole family - cost $3 a person with Pizza, Drinks and snacks provided) ~ I have a call into Emily at Wesley Forest and hoping to have an update by end of this week or beginning of next week
Looking even more ahead: I am working on having our annual youth retreat at Wesley Forest for Friday night, November 5 to Sunday morning, November 7, 2021 (an alternative date could be 19 to 21, 2021)
Additionally, I know our youth leaders are working with the youth on several ideas for some Spring & Summer events and so the April or May events could turn into a different event depending on the youth and the youth leaders' decisions. We are working on Half Way Dam Trip, Mini Golf, Ga-Ga Pit Construction (Cole Orner's Eagle Scout Project), IMPACT at Green Hills possibility, Drive-In Movie Night and more - stay turn!
Additional Note for Scheduling: Looking ahead to Confirmation Class for all incoming sixth (6th) through eighth (8th) graders plus any high schoolers who have not had the opportunity to take the class: Classes will be once a month on a Sunday afternoon from September 2021 to May 2022 from 4pm to 5:30pm followed by dinner with the whole youth group. These dates for classes will correspond to one of the two dates each month that youth group will be on for the 2021-2022 School Year.
Confirmation class will meet on the following dates (please mark your calendars now) ~ September 12, October 10, November 7, December 5, January 16, February 13, March 13, April 10, and May 22 with Pentecost Sunday, where the Youth will join the Church, on June 5, 2022.
If we do a retreat on November 5 through November 7, then Pastor Ryan would do the hour and a half class with the Confirmands sometime during the Retreat as we would not come back in November 7 to have a separate Confirmation Class & Youth Group
Blessings and I cannot wait to catch up with the Youth & Youth Leaders this Sunday night and see what our spring, summer and fall have in store
Youth Leaders: Michael Moyer, Tara Moyer & Christina Wolfe
