YOUTH NEWS

What’s new with CV youth this time of year? Lots!

We have a wonderful active program for kids of all ages. We just finished our children’s Christmas play, “Christmas at a Bus Stop.” I’d like to thank all the adults and kids that helped make this play both fun and meaningful. I have talked to volunteers, actors, singers and congregation and everyone seems to be positively impacted by the play. We have a great young kid’s program at CV, but we still need Faith Trek Sunday School teachers to make it work. There are still openings for teachers this spring. We only need your commitment for a few weeks at a time. We have a great time of leaders to help you teach, the kids are lots of fun and there is a pretty high likelihood you will have fun and grow in your faith too.

Our confirmation program has just finished a section on the 10 commandments. This January we will talk about Baptism. SWAG our Wednesday night high school group has been working through the highs and lows of the Psalms. On Sunday mornings high school Connections has been writing prayer petitions for prayers of the people based on the narrative lectionary. See if you can guess which prayer petition the high schoolers write each week! The High Schoolers are also looking forward to a lock-in this January.

YouthWorksYou should also know that we are planning on doing a mission trip to Denver this summer. If this is something you or your kids might be interested in, please join us for an information meeting on January 18th after church. We are going to Denver to worship and serve alongside other churches that are dealing with the increasing problem of homelessness.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for calling me to be your pastor. Thank you for being a part of the CV family. I hope you all are able to experience the joy of Christ in your lives. See you at worship sometime soon.

In Christ,

Pastor Steve
