Youth group is meeting in person this fall!  We are excited to announce the kickoff of youth group will be September 16.  At Calvary we believe in discipleship and that all believers are called to it.  We believe how we love God and our neighbors is the foundation upon which discipleship is experienced and therefore makes our relationship, with God and each other, the platform in which we disciple and live out our faith.  Relationships are key and therefore we are excited to continue meeting for youth group but understand there are concerns for Covid.

Youth group will have to look a little different this year as we take safety precautions to make sure our students are as safe as possible to connect and fellowship with one another.  While the weather is still nice we’re planning on having outdoor worship for MS and HS students to participate in.  Students may start arriving at Calvary using the gym door (door #5) as early as 6pm with middle school (MS) activities starting at 6:30 and high school (HS) programming starting at 7.  We’re asking students to be dropped off and picked up at door #5 in order to limit contact with Awana kids and other ministry related activities that are happening at church simultaneously.  Students will have the options to hangout outside at the picnic tables/lawn circles in front of the worship stage or connect indoors inside the gym but masks will always be required indoors.  Masks are not required but recommended while outside.  MS and HS will be separated for the majority of the night except while outside and for worship.  MS and HS students will have separate teaching times and small group times to keep exposure risks to a minimum.  MS will end around 8pm, with the gym being available afterwards to connect with friends and HS students will end at 8:30.  Lifeguards will start back up on September 16, 8:45-10pm and is open for all MS and HS students.  The schedule for youth group will look something like this:
Time MS 6th-8th grade HS 9th-12th grade
