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 slept under the stars Friday, May 3 at Family Promise’s Cardboard City at Bethelview UMC to help box up homelessness and send it packing! We worked really hard on our cardboard box that sleeps 11! We enjoyed spending the evening with others learning and raising awareness about homelessness in our county. It’s was a blast!!
We are having a baking party Saturday, May 18, and will be hosting a bake sale fundraiser with lots of delicious goodies available for purchase at church on Sunday, May 19th.
