Today I will start putting together a calendar of study times and events for the youth group at our church. I'm going to start with the Bible study dates and go from there. We are kicking off the youth group fall start up with movie night, Facing the Giants, complete with popcorn, pizza and brownies. I'm going to the elders in the church to see if they can make a list of people in our community that might need volunteer work done and in October start doing community work 1 Saturday a month with a party after each work day. What do ya'll think? I'm new to this but eager. I've prayed for wisdom and I know God sometimes send wisdom in the form of friends. So I'm picking your brains!

Your sister in Christ,


Robin

That sounds like a terrific start to me. Gives the kids a chance to bond with each other, a time to study the Bible and teaches them to reach out to the community. Perfect balance if you ask me. : )

Once you get them bonded, ask them for ideas.

I'm pretty excited! We only have a small, ok, tiny group of youth but from 1 seed comes much fruit, right? We have 8 youth. I was thinking that at Christmas we can do a horse drawn hay ride to sing carols to the shut-ins and deliver some fruit. I just want to make a difference, not just fill time. Please keep me in your prayers! Kristi, thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into those things.

Your sister in Christ,

8 is a great number to get a good bond going! And that is a very managable group for going out and doing community serving.
