Junior High Youth Group Calendar 2017
Happy February:) Valentines is about love! Who loves us the most? God does! He is always with us and constant in His love! John 3:16 reminds me of that love!
For the month of February, Jr High will be learning about world hunger, the effects it has on children and communities and how we can help. World Vision’s theme this year:
Be Hungry…so the world can be Hunger-Free! Tomorrow in youth group, I’m going to challenge the youth to use their resources to fight poverty. They are to choose something significant (ex-coffee, junk food, media) to go without. Anytime they would normally spend money on that item, have them set aside that money to add to our collection jar! Heads up- they may want you to do the challenge too! Our goal is to raise $2,000! We have raised $227 already!!
Thank you to all who participated in the Chili Cook-off! Congratulations to Kyra Hudson who came in first!! We raised $454, half going towards World Vision. It was a very tough choice for the congregation! The congregation said the chili’s were great and so hard to choose which chili was their favorite. That makes them all winners:)
SERVE THE HUNGRY.
DO THE FAMINE.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of students in the U.S. and around the world unite to do the Famine. Join them, and your group will learn about hunger, raise funds to help the hungry, and then go hungry yourselves for 30 hours. Through the Famine, teens grow closer to Christ and each other — all while helping to save the lives of hungry kids.
