Join us at 7:00 pm on the third Friday of the month for Game Night. We gather in the Olympic Room to enjoy a variety of games, something different each month. Whether you’re the competitive type or just play “for the fun of it” there is something for everyone. Fun for all ages and a great way to connect with others. Childcare can be arranged by request.

Know what’s totally cool? When people go out of their way to fellowship together! Despite family time, friends, facebook, TV, sports, books, chores, sleep and oodles of homework, we manage to come together for some quality time on Sunday evenings. We have a few that travel clear across the city to get here. What draws them? Friends, games, fun, lots of laughs and time to share. Youth Group – You should be here! Join us downstairs in Room 101.
Jr/Sr High Youth Group meet 6:30 pm. Leaders – Terry & Jane Stephenson

Youth Mission Trip – 2015 – Smith River, California
The Youth Mission Trip to Smith River, CA was a great time for all- and an enriching experience in service, fellowship and faith building for all of us. Mathew, Jes, Emma, Ashley, Jennifer, Julie, Jane and Terry enjoyed a week of perfect weather in Smith River, CA. We worked and played hard and all came back in one piece! The team cannot express our gratitude enough for everyone’s generous support, both in prayer and financially. A very special and HUGE thank you goes out to the Mannard family for their generous gift of the use of their van for our travels! It was apparent from the beginning that we were blessed and protected and by God’s almighty hand. Our first night on the trip was a sleep over at Newman UMC in Grants Pass, OR. It was so warm and humid we were concerned about how hot the space we would be staying in would be. When Charlene, the church secretary opened the door to the fellowship space downstairs we could feel the air conditioning come out through the door! We all looked at each other with big smiles. We enjoyed a jazzy worship service the next day where they even played a Beatles song! We arrived at the coast that afternoon to mostly sunny skies and 70 degrees, while we learned the folks back at home were dealing with 90’s. The next day our work began and Ashley, one of the youth on our team, was working on a roof repair job and put her foot through the roof. She escaped with not much more than a few scratches! We were split into 7 different teams, all of which were working on different projects, from building to painting to repairing. We all enjoyed the opportunity to work alongside youth and adults from 6 other churches from Oregon and California. The sense of helping so many people was truly fulfilling. The community of Smith River is a beautiful place with beautiful people, one of which spent an evening with us, sharing the history of the area and her Tolowa people. The reception that the entire Sierra Service Project team has received is heartwarming. There will be many projects completed over the course of the next month as various teams come in and the recipients of those projects are all so very grateful. In the near future look for an opportunity to see and hear more about the trip from the youth and leaders of the team.
