You will find our youth activities for children up to the age of 17 listed in our weekly bulletin and Palm Leaves newsletter as well as posted on our website Calendar, and News pages. Palm’s Younger Youth which includes children up to 4th grade, are engaged through our Sunday School program and our Children’s Church program. Bible stories and crafts guide our children to connecting with Jesus along with opening devotions, rainbow bells, combined SS events and more! In addition, we offer special activities such as our Fall pumpkin painting luncheon, game night, movie night, a trip to Lights in the Parkway in December, Children’s Christmas Program and of course Vacation Bible School! This year’s VBS was God’s Galaxy. We took the children on a mission of faith to know God and to know God loves them.
Palm’s Older Youth, 5th – 12th grade, stay connected to Jesus with Youth Group Meetings which include a bible study where the youth are challenged to dive deeper into God’s Word, followed by food and fellowship with games such as kick-ball and wiffle ball. They participate in the Good Friday Community Walk and began a tradition of reenacting the Last Supper. Our older youth volunteer their time in many ways; helping with the children’s activities and events, at a food drive to collect donations for The Open Link of the Upper Perk Valley, through their Helping Hands program where church members can sign up for help with various household tasks, our annual chicken bbq, at VBS and so much more! For added fun they enjoy the Fall flashlight corn maze, making chocolate covered pretzels, bon-fires, a fun slip-n-slide night and more!
