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.
We have been hard at work planning our Youth Service which will be held on Souper Bowl Sunday (Feb. 3rd) this year! We enjoy doing this service all themselves each year and it is such a blessing to our church! After the service the youth will be in the Narthex collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items to donate to The Place.
In the coming months, we will begin planning for Camp Glisson, Family Promise’s Cardboard City, our annual lock-in, some fundraising, and other fun spring activities and outings.
We welcome all youth grades 6-12. Our meetings include devotion, fellowship time and a light snack/supper. The Youth Group enjoys fun weekly fellowship and activities with great friends, serving in our church and community, and sharing God’s love with others…So Come Join Us!!!
