This month we will be looking at issues of hunger and homelessness. Jesus was very clear that we should feed the hungry and give to the poor. Yet too often even faithful Christians miss the message. How can we better follow Jesus' call? 
As part of our commitment to service, we will once again be collecting items. This time we are partnering with Holly Rolfe and the Homeless Outreach Team. Their needs are quite different than the shelter. Toiletries are still welcomed, but we also need toilet paper, non-alcohol hand sanitizer, lip balm, baby wipes, socks  (men's fit most feet), and even underwear. These items will be used to make a connection between the HOT counselor and the perspective client who can benefit from social services. 
Youth Group will meet every Sunday in November from 10-11 am EXCEPT for November 12th. On that Sunday, we will join our church family in worship to listen to Archie Aitcheson speak in honor of Veterans Day. 
Don't miss these special events in November:
Nov. 5:  Shelter kit assembly during youth group time. We will also be writing notes to the women. 

October --


UCV Youth Group has lots of plans for October! This month we will be looking at issues of women's equality. What does the Bible say about the role of women and their value to society? How does our culture miss the mark? Youth Group will meet to explore these topics every Sunday in October from 10-11 am EXCEPT for October 22nd. On that Sunday, we will join our church family in worship to celebrate the call of our new Pastor, Debbie Rice!
