Letter from Youth Chaplain Kenny Hubbell, August 3, 2022:
School is returning and that means youth programming at Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church is also returning!
Welcome back, parents!
We hope that you’ve a fun and restful summer. Below you will find our “Fall Newsletter” which outlines where we are headed programmatically in the coming semester. Please read through it thoroughly and mark your calendars with important dates! If you can’t quite let go of the 90s/early 2000s, please print it out and put it on your fridge.
If your child has never attended a program or it’s been awhile, we encourage them to take that first step towards a new experience. We have such an incredibly sweet core group of students that all newcomers will feel welcome.
We seek to be a place where any young person from this community can know they belong and we have a long history of doing just that.
If you have a middle schooler, you may receive more communications from our Youth Intern, Kate Donaldson if you email her requesting to join the email list: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be on the lookout for service opportunities and other program updates in the near future!
If you have a high schooler, you will continue to hear from me with similar communications, especially if you email me requesting to join the email list: email@example.com. If you have a high schooler in need of service hours or simply enjoys working with children — we are seeking additional youth volunteers to be mentors to our children during our “Sunday Faith and Fellowship Hour” on Sunday mornings. Please see the sign-up genius link here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0444abae229-faith9
We also have Sunday morning worship services at 8:30am and 11:00am in the sanctuary (traditional) and at 9:00am in the gym (contemporary) for those of you wondering/wanting to join us for church!
It’s going to be another amazing year at PCPC!
We hope to see you and your families soon!
To be sure you’re on the email list, email Youth Chaplain Kenny Hubbell: Ken@palmaceia.org.

A note from your Youth Leaders:
Week in and week out, we get to think, plan, and pray through what our young people are experiencing, managing, and needing.
It’s not easy being a teenager. We don’t forget or downplay the challenges that our middle and high schoolers are facing.
We are dedicated to walking alongside our youth and families in whatever season of life they are traveling through.
Please use us! Parents, talk to us about what’s been going on. Students, let us buy you a coffee or a milkshake. We want to hear about your life!
-Kenny and Kate
