Embark on a summer of adventure and friendship with FWS youth

Summer is finally upon us, and what better way to make the most of this season than by joining our church youth group for a summer filled with adventure, friendship, and unforgettable memories! We have an exciting lineup of events planned, ranging from ice cream indulgence to thrilling outdoor activities. Whether you’re a regular member or new to the group, this is your chance to connect with fellow youth and experience the joys of summer together.

Rummage sale: Youth are asked to help out during our annual rummage sale, which benefits youth and children’s ministries. The sale will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Youth can volunteer in the morning, afternoon, or the whole day! Youth help shoppers carry items to their cars, as well as with other tasks throughout the day.

Ice Cream Social: Help us make the ice cream social a success. This much-anticipated event is hosted in conjunction with the Three Rivers Festival. This year, the FWS ice cream social will be on July 15. We will need youth volunteers to help set-up, scoop, and clean up. Youth volunteer shifts will be 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Be sure to come early for the church picnic bring a camp chair to enjoy the Three Rivers Festival Fireworks.

Pine Lake Trip: Escape the summer heat and join us for a memorable trip to Pine Lake! After church on July 16, we will head to Pine Lake Water Park in Berne. Get ready for a day filled with swimming, sliding, and beach games. Pine Lake has a variety of attractions, including water slides, jump towers, and log walks. Youth should bring a sack lunch and snacks.

Ziplining: For those craving an adrenaline-fueled experience, mark your calendars for our ziplining  event! On Aug. 20, we’ll venture to Timber Lakes for an aerial adventure. We’ll also take advantage of the other attractions at this Huntington destination. As reservations are required, youth will need to RSVP by Aug. 1. The cost for this event is $25.

Kayaking: Calling all adventurers! If you have a love for the great outdoors and seek an adrenaline rush, our Kayaking Adventure is tailor-made for you. On Sept. 17, we’ll head out to Chain O Lakes for an afternoon of kayaking excursion. Paddle your way through the chain of lakes and spend some time on the beach.
