In January 2020 — before the Coronavirus disruption — the YG launched a ministry shakeup and created a new approach to be present for our youth. In essence, the new approach offered multiple opportunities to meet up with adult leaders and help people in need, rather than meeting just once a week in the evening and on Sundays for church, as YG did previously. Then COVID-19 arrived and changed everyone’s lives. But, our Youth Group adapted and found a new rhythm:

+ Pre-COVID we used to meet in person every Wednesday night, but it got to be too much with all the extra curricular/sports/clubs/etc., — activities that everyone seemed to have on their plates.
+ So we’re now very flexible and have found that a mix of zoom/on campus/off campus works pretty well. If you’re in Middle School or High School or College and are looking for a place to land, we ZOOM most Wednesdays from 7 – 7:45 p.m. To join, or ask questions, get hold of Mrs. Patti.
+ Our September 2021 schedule:
    • Wednesday, 9/8 on campus in person – 6-7:30 p.m.
    • Wednesday, 9/15 Zoom – 7-7:45p.m.
    • Wednesday, 9/22 in person – location and time tbd
    • Sunday, 9/26 Youth beach day – location and time tbd
    • Wednesday, 9/29 Zoom – 7-7:45 p.m.
October is tbd! 
From Mrs. Patti: “I know that’s not a locked-in schedule but with everything else that seems to be locked-in for people, we have found it best to be flexible. Our youth group is not curriculum-based, but rather is relationship/fellowship-based.  The kids don’t need one more thing to study —  just to know they are loved, respected, and supported by adults from church along with kids from other schools who are in the group.”

Youth Group members are reminded that adult leaders are just a text away if members need to talk. Adult leaders are Mrs. Patti, Mr. and Mrs. Nichols, Mike Olivor, and Joe Miramontes.
