I hope this first week back to school goes incredibly well for your family. The FSM Team has been brainstorming, prepping & praying this week for the launch of the youth program as well. Sunday we had a fantastic first day welcoming freshly minted 5th graders and experiencing worship together for the first time.
FSM will be spending the entire year in the Gospels in a series we are calling ‘Encounter.’ These first two weeks we are in John 1:1-14 before beginning Christmas in September for 5 weeks. Our aim is to feed our youth the Word of God in an understandable, challenging & applicable way. We will have FSM Middle School services every Sunday from 9:00-10:20 AM.
This Wednesday we will kick-off our year with a fun, messy & memorable evening. FSM will be hosting this great time during our normal Wednesday night timeframe 6:00-7:15 PM. We ask that no one wears shoes or clothes that need to be kept clean as well as parents have ample towels in their car when they pick up their students. Pizza is offered every week for $1/slice and cokes for 50 cents each (we will have water as well).
Sunday from 3:00-7:30 PM we will be going to Lake Beaverfork to enjoy an afternoon on the lake tubing. Dr. Tom & Joanie Roberts are opening their home to host our annual event. We ask everyone who has a life jacket to bring it. We ask the ladies to wear a one-piece suit as we promote modesty. Food & drink will be provided. The Roberts live at 18 Justice Lane.
You can download a pdf of the youth calendar here that has all the dates of events from August-December. Please mark your family calendars to ensure your youth will be in attendance. Friends are always welcome!
We are looking forward to a fantastic year knowing Jesus and making Him known!
