Our "In Progress" Café

Admin West, aka the Youth Room, has undergone a transformation over the past few weeks. The Café, as I'm now calling it, isn't done. With a little bit of paint, some cleaning, rearranging, and some new furniture, this transformation project has the beginnings of a home for our students.

Years ago, the students had a space that was theirs. Many have shared memories of hanging out in Grace Place, playing games, etc. We can all agree that Grace Place is not a space well suited for students. The Café has many beautiful attributes for student ministry:
  • A Kitchen so we can make dinner (as they have done in years past)
  • Proximity to the Gaga pit and the fire pit
  • The rooms design makes it easy to portion off for small groups

Youth Ministry Plan

I'm hosting a meeting for parents and students to re-launch our youth program on Sunday. Katie and Michael will be helping me lead, and we are excited about this endeavor.

Whether there are 3 or 30, we have a plan to disciple these amazing young people. Here's what to expect from the program:
  • Meet Every Sunday from 5:00-7:00 pm
    • 5:00 – Hang Out Time and Food
    • 5:30 – Gather Together for Prayer & Bible Lesson (led by Faith right now)
    • 6:00 – Split into Small Groups for discussion
    • 7:00 – Parent Pickup

Once a quarter, we'll have a fun event or party. Our first will be a costume party in October.

How You Can Help

Join me in praying for our student ministry relaunch. Let's pray that God uses us as a church to help those in our church and community in 7th-12th grade gain a deeper understanding of their relationship with him. I am praising God for the students I know he will bring us and the spiritual growth that will happen.

Help Us Finish the Space
We created the Café with the hope that adult groups would also feel comfortable in it. There are things left on our list that we haven't purchased yet. If you'd like to help us finish out the space, we have an Amazon Wish List you can use to send things to the church. You could also donate directly to this project by noting a contribution as the Youth Room. We have some things that won't be coming from Amazon, so if you'd like to donate directly for those other things (some art for the walls, for example), note that contribution.

If you like to cook, we will welcome anyone interested to help provide meals on Sunday evenings. If leading small groups interests you, please check out the open house this Sunday.
