December was a fun month for the Dayspring youth! We kicked off the holiday season with the annual gingerbread decorating evening. The youth created a variety of structures from the wide array of candies and other goodies. In the end, the youth vote on the three most favorite. This is always one of the most favorite nights of the year!
On December 22, after everyone had finished finals, we got together again for the big Dayspring Youth Christmas party. We met at church and had build-your-own pizzas. We then went to City Skate to ice skate in downtown Phoenix! Some of us had never skated before, but everyone picked it up quickly! After skating we went back to church to enjoy the firepit and some s’mores. It was a fun evening of fellowship and building church connections.
Dayspring Youth Ministries has several important events coming up. Please note the following dates and important information:
Jan. 26 is Youth Sunday. The youth will be planning and leading both worship services on this day. It is very important that all youth are in formation on Sunday mornings starting in January to prepare for this day! We need ALL YOUTH because there is a place for everyone in this special service! We are going to work to make it a very special service for our Dayspring congregation.
Confirmation starts January 12 for all youth in 7th grade and up. Confirmation classes are a special part of the faith journey and offer a fantastic opportunity to talk with and learn from our pastors. Please contact Jennine if you are interested or have questions.
Youth attending the Sierra Service Project this summer will have a meeting with Jennine on January 5th immediately following formation. We will meet in room 111. If you are still interested, but have not signed up yet, please contact Jennine to assess availability.
Jan. 31-Feb. 2 is the Senior High Ski Trip. Please let Jennine know if you plan to attend. Informational emails will be sent to those choosing to participate. Final cost and specifics will be communicated soon. As always, scholarships are available.
