   Youth Group Sunday Service in May
   Youth Group Calendar
   Don't Forget Snack!

Five to One Ratio
Did you know that research shows that it takes ONE adult volunteer to support FIVE youth in a successful youth group program?  So this means if we have about 25 youth coming to our meetings, each week we need 5 adults there to help make it happen!  We are planning for next year and need your help.  We are looking for a registration/roster volunteer, snack sign-up volunteer, anyone who can help go on a camping/canoeing trip over the summer volunteers…..come share your passions and think of ways you can give to our youth!  If you would like consider how you can help, please meet THIS WEDNESDAY, April 9th, in Room D (near child care) from 7:30pm- 8:45pm.  We would like to create our team of adults for next year-- soon!!

Youth Group Family Potluck
Save the date Sunday, April 27th for the youth group family potluck!!  This will be a fun celebration as we approach the end of the year. We will watch a slideshow of youth group photos, reflect on the year, give a big thanks to our advisor team, and talk about exciting plans for the summer and next year!  Don’t miss it!!  Our potluck will be in the Atrium Commons and Auditorium starting at 5:30pm until 7pm.  Please bring a generous dish to share (hungry teens!)  The youth have prepared yummy strudel for the event!!  Please RSVP to Tamara if you plan to come and the number of people in your family that will be coming.  THANKS!

Youth Group Sunday Service in May
For our next two meetings, April 27 and May 4th, youth group will be planning the worship service for the 11:00 service on Sunday, May 11th.  The theme of the service will be “Friendship.”  Plan to come hear our youth.  Also as part of this service there will be a special bridging ceremony for our seniors.  FUS had bridging ceremonies in the past for youth as they moved on to being a young adult and we are bringing it back!!
