Youth Connection



Summer Service Project
Our Servant Week has evolved into a “Servant Project” due to work schedules, vacations, and availability.  As such, if you received a questionnaire in the mail regarding our efforts but were not available the week of July 27 or have changed your mind, please contact Stacey Altiere at 330-718-8820.  Each Youth Group family will contact members of the church to coordinate a date/time to come to your home and perform outdoor tasks such as gardening, mowing, window cleaning, and car washing free of charge.  We are no longer restricting our efforts to one week as that may not work for all involved.  We simply want to help and get the work done!  

School Supply Drive (3 more Sundays to contribute!)
Our Youth are collecting school supplies until August 30 for the Warren School District.  We are off to a wonderful start having already collected dozens of items!  The children in our community will need these supplies regardless of in-person or remote learning this fall, and we are collecting for ALL grade levels (for suggestions please visit the school’s website).  A few items that have been specifically requested by the teachers are:  pens, pencils, spiral notebooks, folders, 1” binders, crayons, glue, erasers, and pencil bags/boxes.  These are just a few items the children tend to go through the fastest and will need in their travels.  A collection box has been placed in the hallway.  Please contact Stacey Altiere at 330-718-8820 for further information and keep the donations coming!

Fall Youth Involvement
I have begun speaking with families about Youth participation during future worship services and activities we have tentatively scheduled for the fall.  Different areas of involvement include Youth Lectors, Godly Play Assistants, Sunday School Assistants, and Youth Group Registration.  Please take a moment to speak with your child(ren) age 10-18 about these different facets of church life and expect my call to discuss these commitments.  I would LOVE to hear from all our families and have a solid plan for the remainder of the year.  My door (and cell phone) are always open!  Call/text Stacey Altiere at 330-718-8820.
