another lady at church to form a youth group at our church. We've been meeting on Thursday nights to ponder ideas and work on organizing things. I'm really enjoying it alot. I can't wait till we get started with the kids in September. We're going to start Family Movie night at church once a month, volunteering to do yard work for shut-ins in the community, and a choir as well. Lots of things to work on. Has anyone else done this before? I'd appreciate any help whatsoever. I'm excited but kno0w that I have no experience with something of this magnitude. I want God to be glorified in all we organize.

Your sister in Christ,


Robin

Robin that is a great idea!


I have to tell you, we have youth groups at our church, but we do it a bit differently. We include parents. We think that parents need to be a central influence in the lives of our youth. And one way we can help plant a respect for both teen and parent, is to have them working together in growth of Jesus. We have leaders who lead the meeting and bring about deep discussions about Gods word applied to their lives. And we have game night. We meet twice a month. So one night is
