Fisher Folk is our Middle School Youth Group for grades 6 through 8. Normally this group meets from 4:00pm – 5:30pm on Sunday evenings. We have three different types of evenings themed around our mission of Love, Grow and Serve.
These activities are designed for youth to have a good time. These events are also designed to allow our youth to invite a friend, even if the friend has no church experience. Activities range from goofy games and photo scavenger hunts to ice skating and barbeques in the park. Sometimes they are at the church; other times we go off site.
Themed Group Lessons
These lessons revolve around a theme for the year. This year’s theme is prayer. We talk, explore, play games and build relationships while we learn about what God wants for us. We are joined by a dedicated group of adults each week and the lessons this year are led by Pastor Stephanie.
Service and Mission
We encourage our youth to experience what Jesus meant when he told us to love our neighbors. Some of the service projects/missions our youth participate in are the Olde English Faire at the Stronghold Camp and Conference Center, caroling to shut-ins, our Souper Bowl of Caring offering, potting and delivering plants to church members, and volunteering at the Feed My Starving Children meal distribution center. Youth completing 8th grade have their first opportunity to go on our annual Go N Serve mission trip, which we take in June. This year’s mission trip is to the Heifer International Camp in Perryville, Arkansas.
