Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF)

JYF & MYF will meet this Sunday, April 18th at 4:30 pm.

We are celebrating Earth Week and will be gathering on SUNDAY instead of FRIDAY this week. We will be joining with our senior high group, meeting at the Oakdale Parking Area of South Mountain Reservation -- across the street from the entrance to the Reservoir walk, duck boats and playground. We will be doing a short hike, devotion and helping out the South Mountain TrashTacklers -- picking up some garbage along the trail and the parking area and field.
Please bring a water bottle, WORK GLOVES and of course wear a mask. Please confirm with Pastor Brenda by Sunday noon so that she knows you are coming and who we are expecting.

JYF is an inclusive group for middle school students (grades 6-8) that explores issues of meaning and faith. We spend time in conversation, having fun, sharing together and acting on our call to love and care for our neighbors, near and far. We welcome students of all faiths, questioning faith or no faith who are willing to journey with us as we explore together.

The weekly JYF gatherings provide an opportunity for students to get together with friends (new and old) on Fridays.

In a safe and fun setting, students help support organizations and individuals through service. These have included park clean-ups, making decorations with residents at a senior center, and making lunches for people who are food insecure. We also explore important issues of faith and justice through hands-on activities.

Each JYF gathering also includes lots of games, snacks and time for creativity and play. See the calendar for our weekly programs, times and locations.
