Next Meeting: Wednesday, October 27.
This Wednesday: Church member Susie Bliss will be joining us on Oct. 27, to show us how to do canvas art. On Wednesday, Nov. 3, she will show us how to make jewelry using leftover paint from the previous week. We have all seen some of the things she's made and their awesome. So, this should be a lot of fun.
Upcoming Outing: We decided to go bowling in Chillicothe and eat at China Garden Buffet after the worship service on Sunday, November 7. That's the weekend when Daylight Saving Time falls back. So, you'll get an extra hour of sleep the night before.We'll need some parents to help drive. Youth Group funds will pay for the lunch, youth will be responsible for paying for their bowling expenses.
Christmas Party Plans: We've begun making plans for this year's Christmas Party. The date will be Sunday, December 12. Find out all the details on the Christmas Party Page.
Ideas: Susan and Anselm shared an idea that we thought our group might like. It’s called "Readers Theatre" (sometimes called Readers Choir). Basically this is telling a parable-like story by way of a fun dramatic reading. Each person is a different character. You don’t have to memorize anything; it is all read from a script. We could do a “performance” at a Sunday worship service.
Project: We've been working on making Bible themed word-search puzzles that we will eventually take to our nursing home and shut-in church members. That's been fun and we've learned a little bit in the process. We have also been working on birthday cards for church members.
Helping with worship: It was asked if the youth could participate in the worship service. And, of course, Anselm thought that was a great idea! Youth can serve as liturgists and help lead worship. This will include leading the Call to Worship, prayers, or reading scripture. Youth can also serve as ushers.
