At Pleasant Grove, our United Methodist Youth Fellowship is referred to as the CREW. CREW stands for Christ Rocks Everyone’s World. Youth group members are students in grades 6 to 12. Our students represent many of the middle and high schools in Forsyth county.
The CREW have Sunday school classes at 10:00 AM in the youth area of the Fellowship Hall. They will also meet most Sunday evenings between 5:00pm-6:30pm. Each meeting usually consists of a Bible Study program or activity followed by a snack dinner and ending with some sort of recreation.
Each fall or spring we try to schedule a lock-in for the group as well as attend a Spiritual Life Retreat at Camp Glisson in Dahlonega. Confirmation classes also takes place in the spring in which the students prepare for church membership.
Youth mission projects include gathering Christmas presents for needy families and collecting money for a designated charity on Souper Bowl Sunday. The CREW also participate in some of the church mission projects, which include Samaritan’s Purse: Operation Christmas Child and Family Promise.
The meeting months are based on the school year calendar, but when possible, we participate in local summer mission projects, such as Mission Change based in Albany, GA, as well.
The Youth are headed to Camp Glisson for their annual Spiritual Life Retreat weekend on March 22!! This weekend is definitely one of the highlights of the year, and they are super excited that it is right around the corner! Please be in prayer for them in the weeks leading up to and the weekend of their trip. It is a great time of spiritual growth and strengthening their relationship with Jesus Christ…and it’s a whole lot of FUN!!
We will be volunteering one Saturday this month at The Place of Forsyth in their Market Place Garden. We will help with preparing and planting the garden for spring. We will also be getting ready this month to host our annual Egg Hunt on Palm Sunday, April 14 from 9:30 to 10:30.
