The following are the current dates for the upcoming Fall Schedule.  Our first meeting will be a kick off party this Sunday on the back patio at Faith.  The party will be a Broadway themed affair with games and such.  We will not have a costume contest this year, but guests are encouraged to showcase their Broadway themed t-shirts or socks and such.  If you’ve got flying monkey wings, more power to you.  Please note, our first event will be a casual party, the youth band will not be meeting this first week and will start on the 17th.

Meeting times (unless specifically listed for a special event) are:
5 PM – 7 PM (youth are invited at 4 PM to participate in the Youth Band, all voices and instruments are welcome)

Our standard evening agenda is as follows:
4-5 PM Youth Band rehearsal
5-5:35 – meal
5:35-5:50 group game
5:50-6:40 Evening Program / Break out Groups
6:40-7 pm Music and prayer

Who we are as a Youth Community:
JCrew / Youth Group is for youth in grades 7-12 and members are highly encouraged to invite their friends.

What we do:
While some nights are more serious than others, each week we meet in Fellowship with Faith and Fun.  Our goal is to establish and maintain a community that loves and supports each other to live every day as Christ would have us.  To love God and to love our Neighbor as Ourselves.
