Monday Funday (1/18/16)

Since the youth are off this upcoming Monday,I figured we would have some fun by doing something different....Whirlyball (think bumper cars and basketball).

We will be going to:

Parkway Plaza, Address: 3115 W Parker Rd, Plano, TX 75023. This event will be from 2-3 pm and will cost 15 dollars per person.

Important Mission Trip Info

It's official! In case you haven't heard, this year's Youth Mission Trip will be to Virginia Beach with Team Effort on July 10-16.

To reserve your student's space, a registration form and $50 non-refundable deposit will be required by Youth Sunday, which is February 21st. The registration form will be available soon. Make check payable to VRUMC and indicate Mission Trip Deposit in the memo line. This is a very important deadline so that we reserve the correct number of spots through Team Effort and plans can move forward to start booking flights.

***Currently, this is just to reserve student spots, as adult chaperones will be based on the number of attendees. (You will be receiving an e-mail soon as to how this will work on behalf of the Youth Council.)

316 Points

I have totaled all the points for 2015 on my iPad. Please see me this week on either Sunday or Wednesday to get an update on how many points you are at for the Mission Trip.

SuperBowl Party

We will be hosting a Super Bowl Party on February 7th at our house. Please stay tuned for more information on this fun event! P.S. I will be sharing insightful information on the "play-by-plays." J/K ;)


We will be having a really fun lock-in on Friday, February 12th. However, I desperately need parents to help out! If I could have a few willing parents to stay overnight with the youth and some others who might volunteer just for the activities (until around 11pm) that would be so helpful. Please let me know if you are able (e-mail me at This event will not be possible without your help!

Parent and Youth Meeting (Regarding the Mission Trip)

You are invited to attend an information meeting regarding this year's mission trip on Sunday, February 14th at 2pm. There will be no youth at the regular 4pm time on this particular week due to the lock-in on Friday. Please attend to receive the registration form, fill out a Team 316 form if you haven't already, and to find out more information about the trip.

***Following this meeting will be a mandatory full run-through for Youth Sunday (2/21).

Youth Sunday

It's that time again!!!!! Pastor Mary Beth has asked for the Youth to lead service on February 21st (the week after the 7 Big Question Series Ends). Since, last Youth Sunday went so well, I look forward to creating something new and exciting for this one!!!! 5 points are given to everyone who participates!
