This is a program for youth in grades 6 - 12.
What is Youth Ministry at Hawfields?
We are working to provide a safe place for young people to be who they are and explore their questions about God, the Church and their Christian faith. We hope to provide them support to feel grounded in the Christian faith so they can address societal pressures. We do this through helping them build relationships with each other and the advisors.
We will be heading over to the new retirement center - Mebane Ridge - on February 1st to play games with the residents and paint fingernails.
Saturday, February 14th is Winterjam - this is a Christian music concert at the Greensboro Coliseum. We will meet about 4PM to go. Parents are welcome and needed to drive. The cost is $10 (please bring correct change and cash that day). We will return home about 11PM
Everyone needs a Medical release form on file to participate in anything off site. You can download it below. Print it and bring it with you!
We would like to submit our Montreat registration this Thursday. While it is possible to make changes to this, it is most cost effective to register everyone at this time. The dates are July 12-18, 2015. For the most part I expect the same group that went in 2014, however, we do have space for someone new!! Jane Barfield will be going instead of Nancy Montgomery.
Please confirm by Thursday morning that your high schooler will be going. I have just gotten in the last of the soup/cookie fundraiser money and will be working on figuring out how that gets divided this week. I should have up to date reports on this by Sunday. At that time, you can let me know how you would like to pay the $50 deposit for the youth conference.
This is an overnight retreat planned by the Salem Presbytery Youth Council (PYC). It is March 7-8, 2015 in King, NC. We will leave the church early Saturday morning (7ish) and return about 2PM on Sunday. It is a time of recreation, worship, singing, and growing with other youth from our presbytery. If your child would like to attend this retreat, please let me know by February 1st. You may use funds from your fundraising account to pay for this. I think the cost will be about $65. You may use funds from your child's fundraising account to pay the deposit.
We will be attending week 2 of the Massanetta Middle school Conference at Massanetta Springs Conference center in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The theme for 2015 is Wear Love - http://www.massanettasprings.org/conferences/middle-school-conference/ We would like to submit our registration for this conference by February 27th; so, if your current 6th, 7th or 8th grader would like to attend, please let me know by February 22nd. There is a $50 deposit required to save your spot. In order to register, we must pay the full conference fee ($345) for each person attending at the time of registration, so it is important that we can submit accurate numbers. Making additions to our registration at a later date may not be possible. You may use funds from your child's fundraising account to pay the deposit. We will have updated summaries of each person's fundraising account this weekend. Last year we had 6 youth attend and they had a great experience! If attending is a financial strain for your family, please let us know, there are scholarship funds available.
