Youth Kickoff – September 14 – We had a great youth cook out and kickoff September 14! We saw about 25 students between middle school and high school, some of which we’d never seen or met before. It was a beautiful night at the lake! We did some tubing, kayaking, paddle boating, fishing and eating! We grilled and ate about 50 hamburgers, and finished the night by roasting some smores around the bonfire. It was a great first event!
Next week, September 21, will be our next event as we begin a consistent youth program. For the rest of the fall semester we will meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30PM to 8:00PM. We will be meeting at the Youth For Christ facility in downtown Columbus at 2809 13th Street. Our Sunday evenings will be a youth focused time of fellowship, worship, teaching and small group conversation open to all middle school and high school students.. We are blessed and fortunate to partner with Youth For Christ, as we share the mission of reaching Columbus area youth for Christ. We hope to see you next week!
You are invited to learn more about Connection, meet the pastors, ask questions, find out how to get involved, and enjoy some pizza!
