Highlands Youth to Move to New Day!

For as long as we can remember, our regular Youth meetings have always been on Sunday. To quote Ecclesiastes 3:1, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Now is a time for change. To remove some obstacles that make it difficult for some of our youth attend, we are moving our meetings to Wednesday nights. Youth meetings will start at 5:30 PM and end at 7 PM. However, youth may also choose to stick around for the Community Campfire that starts at 7 PM and ends around 8:30 PM.

This decision to move our meetings to Wednesday comes after careful consideration and prayer. We believe that more youth will be able to attend and that this opens the door for families and the Church as a whole to come together. We think this will be great, and most people we have told about this decision are excited. We all know that change can be difficult and requires some adjustment. Please keep this decision and our group in your thoughts and prayers. We know that God is going to do some great things for this group!!

We will be leaving right after the Worship Service this Sunday (June 10th) around 11:30 AM and heading to the beach.   We will have a little cookout so you do not need to bring a lunch.   All food and drinks will be provided. 

Bring a towel or chair, bathing suit, frisbees, footballs, soccer balls, kites, etc.   ( Sorry, the ball does not bounce wll on the beach, so no 4 square.  🙂 

This is open to ANYONE so we hope to see the whole family and all church members!!    Questions?   Call Bob at 904-813-3672.
