Of course, we can't really avoid the real reason that we celebrate, can we? The whole reason that Easter is even a thing that exists: Jesus.

August 15, we will be starting back up with Sunday Nights. It will look a little different than what it used to but I am excited for moving forward with Sunday Nights again. It will be 6-8pm. If it is a holiday weekend or there is an event that evening then we will not be having our normally scheduled Youth Group as the youth will be encouraged to attend the event.
Sunday Night has been traditionally for 6th-12th grade in our church but we have decided to extend that down to 5th grade for now. We are testing this out and may end up going back to before but felt this could help with the transition from children to student ministry. 5th grade will still be in the children's area on Sunday morning.
Sunday Night will be more on relationship building through various fun activities and a devotion. 3-4 times are a year we will do a service project on Sunday night (i.e. clean up an elderly persons yard, pick up trash at a park, put together homeless bags for a downtown ministry, and so on) these times parents will be encouraged to come along with their teens to serve too. Modeling your faith is important not just when they are children but as teens as well. I want this ministry to focus on the whole family as often as possible.
