We are cancelling worship and youth group tonight due to the cold weather and the chance for rain. We will begin youth group next week, more details to come soon. Contact Matt if you have any questions.
2020 continues to keep us on our toes, so as we continue to adapt Youth Group will look a little bit different this fall. Both Jr. High and Sr. High will meet on their usual nights but all of our meetings will be outside. We will plan to meet at the fire pit at the community garden. That being said this will require us to be highly adaptable. Some weeks the weather will be crummy, and we will have to cancel or find a different spot to meet. We will most likely only have youth group until the end of October, or when it gets too cold to meet outside, again we will need to be flexible and adaptable. Once to weather gets to cold we will move to doing youth group on Zoom.
Here are a few ways you can help keep everyone safe and help youth group run smoothly. First if you have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19, you are feeling sick, have a fever, etc. please stay home. Second, please wear your mask unless you are eating a snack or taking a drink. Third, do your best to social distance. Finally bring a chair!
For those who are not comfortable coming in person, Matt will record short videos of the lessons so that you will be able to keep up on what we are learning.
Here are the three ways to keep up on youth group news. 1. www.srcyouth.com 2. Follow the Facebook group SRCyouthnews 3. Also download the Remind App: Look for Standale Reformed Church and follow Jr. High Youth Group or Sr. High Youth Group. The class code for Jr. High is hd29h9, the Sr. High code is hch6e3. Please be sure use these resources, we do our best to keep them up to date.
Jr. High we will start Sept. 9th, we will be joining the congregation for Outdoor Worship at 7:00pm in front of the church. Then we will walk to the Ice Cream Garage, please bring a mask, but there is no need for money. We will wrap up at 9:00pm.
Sr. High we will meet at 6:00pm on Sunday, Sept. 13th at the fire pit. Bring and mask and a chair, we will be done by 7:30.
As alway please contact Matt if you have any questions.Jr. High, Sr. High
After chatting with the Reformed Church offices and the leaders of North Street Missions in Wooster, Ohio we have decided it would be the wisest choice to cancel our mission trip this summer. We have already made plans to head there in 2021, and any graduating senior is welcome to come along with us.
My heart breaks for all of you who were looking forward to this trip. I know I was excited for a great week. If it is safe, I will try to organize local service projects for later this summer or maybe a short trip to somewhere close by for a night or two. Please stayed tuned, we will keep you updated about this summer.Sr. High
Just a quick update on both Sr. High and Jr. High Youth Group. As most of you have probably guessed we will not be having any in person gatherings for a while, we will wait for the medical experts to let us know it is safe to gather again.
In the meantime we are doing our best to stay connected through videos and online chats. We have been doing interviews with our Jr. High Leaders that you can find at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd4lJDjshWwo3QoY3uKQw1w/about We will keep adding to those one or twice a week.
On Wednesdays nights at 7:00pm we start doing a Zoom call with as many Jr. High Students and Leaders as possible. Matt will lead a short lesson and we will just check-in with everyone. Please download Zoom to your phone or computer and Matt will share the specific call number on Remind and Facebook.
For Sr. High we will do the same on Sunday nights at 7:00pm. We started last week and it was great. Please download Zoom and watch for Matt to pass along the invite.
If you have any questions or if you have any needs please contact Matt or any of the other leaders.Jr. High, Sr. High
