Youth Notes

Wesley UMC Youth program is for any youth middle-school and high-school age.

Penny's Monday Moments 10-9-2018:

Good afternoon.  The office was closed yesterday so I decided to be closed down too!  

DATES FOR WORK CAMP 2019 will be July 14-20.  We have confirmed this with Camp Galilee.  Details on cost, etc are still being worked out.  But PLEASE get this on your calendar for next summer!

This week at Wesley:

Wednesday -   Youth Gathering at 6:00

Sunday - Sunday School at 9:45.   PLEASE encourage your youth to come and bring their Bible!!

Upcoming dates:

I am always in need of parental help.  Please let me know if you are available for any event.

I will need to register for the following events soon.  Please let me know what your youth is interested in doing.  As a reminder, if your youth registers for an event and backs out after registration has closed, they are responsible for the FULL amount of the registration cost.  Many of our activities are partially funded through our Youth Restricted Account.  It is not fair to the group to pay for youth that back out after those funds have been paid.   Also, I am going to need payment for the various activities up front and not after the event.  We have been lax in this and I'm still waiting on collecting some payments.  PLEASE help me out with this!

Sharefest in Springfield - October 19-20 -  Those signed up include:  Grace, Miranda, Stella and Judy.  Nellie will be meeting us in Springfield and staying with us overnight.  

Feed My Starving Children Event at Grace E-Free in Jefferson City - November 9-10 -   This is an opportunity for the youth to work with other youth throughout Jefferson City.  We will go as a group on November 9 for the 6:30-8:30 shift.  This can be a family affair!  We are allotted 30 spots for our church so I want the youth to have the first opportunity to sign up.  The other spots can be used by anyone in the church either Friday evening or on Saturday.  So if your youth cannot go on November 9, you might consider signing your family up for a time slot on Saturday.  A sign-up sheet has been posted in the narthex for the church family.  I have signed up for 10 spots on Friday night.  Those signed up include:  Brooke and Ashley, Jaden and Michelle, Katie, Miranda, Stella, Allie Snellen, Sammy and Jennifer, Karen Tucker, Judy, Pastor Tom and myself.  Again, I need to hear from you so that we can either fill these spots or release them for others in the church to use.

X-Treme Winter in Branson - December 27-29 - Total cost per youth for this event with registration, hotel and food will be around $180 for the three days.  Cost to the youth/adults will be $90 each.  Deadline to register and one half of payment needed by November 1 with balance paid by December 1.  Those signed up include:  Brooke, Jaden, Stella and Judy, Steve and Karen.  

Upcoming Buddy Pack dates are October 24, and December 19.

Youth Christmas Party will be Sunday, December 16.


November 2 - We will go as a group to watch Joey perform in "Grease" at Miller Performing Arts Center.  She has the lead as Sandy!!

November 4 - Planning Meeting right after 2nd service for our Special Learning Center Party.  Lunch will be provided!

November 14 - Fall Party for the Special Learning Center.  Because of Buddy Packs and schedules in October, we are going to host the Special Learning Center kids a little later this year.  We will focus it around a "Thanksgiving" theme.  We will need ALL youth to be here for this evening as we host these awesome kids!

December 16 - Youth Christmas Party

Do not let cost be a factor in your youth participating!  We have scholarships available!

Have a great week!!!
