Midweek (High School)
BECAUSE WE WANT EVERY HIGH SCHOOLER TO BE EMPOWERED TO SERVE FROM THEIR PASSIONS AND GIFTS ON A REGULAR BASIS, WE ARE NOW ENCOURAGING OUR HIGH SCHOOLERS TO JOIN A SERVE GROUP THROUGHOUT THE WEEK.
Here are the opportunities for Fall 2017...
CENTERED (9th Grade only)
All 9th grade youth are invited to join the Centered experience this semester. Centered is a formative discipleship experience, and will help our 9th graders examine the foundations of faith, discover their gifts and prepare for future service. Both guys and girls will meet on Wednesday evenings. Location and details coming soon!
NORA SERVE GROUP
The Nora group will connect with students from Nora Elementary through Fun Saturdays and Trunk-n-Treat. Fun Saturdays are a community outreach program for Nora Elementary students. Youth will have the opportunity to lead a new, expanded format of Fun Saturdays, including large group time, small group times, games, snacks, and crafts. This opportunity is open to all ages (8th grade and up), so parents and siblings are welcome to sign up to serve with your high schooler.
Mandatory Kick-off Meeting:
September 6 from 6:30-8 p.m. in The Haverstick
Fun Saturday Dates:
September 16, November 11, December 9
Trunk-n-Treat: October 27, 2017
MINI-WORKCAMP SERVE GROUP
This group will meet at various times approximately 2-3 times per month to meet requests for physical work projects (yard work, house work, painting, small construction projects, etc.) submitted by congregation members.
CARE TO BAKE SERVE GROUP
Primarily, the Care to Bake Group will gather to cook meals and write notes of encouragement for people who have recently had surgery, a new baby, or experienced loss of a family member.
WHEN: 2nd & 4th Wednesdays each month beginning at 6 p.m. End time TBD. (note: eat dinner before you come)
WHERE: The Yaneys' house: 688 Shannon Court, Noblesville (North Harbour neighborhood)
Additionally, there are opportunities available for youth to go in groups of 2-3 to visit with a shut-in (someone who is unable to leave their house due to health issues or age).
MIDDLE SCHOOL SMALL GROUP LEADERS (11th & 12th Grade only)
Juniors and seniors have an awesome new opportunity to invest intentionally in a group of middle schoolers through their Wednesday night programming. This is a high-level investment, as youth will be required to apply for a spot, attend training, and commit weekly for the entire school year.
WHEN: Wednesdays 6:30-8 p.m. from September 13-November 15 (fall semester) plus mandatory training on August 30 from 6:30-8 p.m.
High School youth have the opportunity to serve in Kids! Ministry in various roles twice a month during the 9:30 service. Additionally, there are opportunities to serve on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8 p.m.
Josh, our worship intern, is excited to form a team of youth to dive into the meaning of worship together and eventually help lead worship during Middle School & High School XP.
