Nuts & Bolts

Youth Ministry Update:

At the November meeting of the YMLT (Youth Ministry Leadership Team), the transition period between Trevor and the person who will be hired for the new position was discussed. It was decided at that meeting that the volunteers who have been working with the youth would step up during this transition period with a few modifications. Sunday night meetings have been suspended. Attendance on Sunday evenings has been sporadic at best. Wednesday night youth programming has been more successful and would continue.

At a Parents meeting on December 11, the parents and volunteers present decided they wanted to go a different direction than the one originally planned. Due to low numbers, it was decided to combine both children and youth into one program on Wednesday night.

Carey Eisher and Nicole Takayama, who have been working with the children will work with Christi Coon in a combined program for children and youth on Wednesday nights.
