Youth – 2022

Wednesdays, returning in 2022 on January 12th!
6-7:30pm: Middle School Youth Group
7:30-8:45: High School Youth Group

10-10:45: Formation X for middle schoolers on Zoom, resuming on January 9, 2022. Email ken@palmaceia.org for the join link.

7:30-8:30pm: High School Bible Study, now called “Talking PTS” meets in a hybrid fashion — in the Youth Room or on Zoom, resuming in 2022 on January 10th.
In “Talking PTS” or “Talking Points,” the PTS stands for Philosophy, Theology, and Scripture. We will teach on those three topics in a rotation format on Monday nights for high schoolers.

To be sure you’re on the email list, email Youth Chaplain Kenny Hubbell: Ken@palmaceia.org

Confirmation for high school students begins Sunday, January 9, 2022! If you would like your high schooler to participate in this 6-week course, 10am-noon, please email Rev. Kenny Hubbell at ken@palmaceia.org with their name, grade, and date of birth to register them. Confirmation is a wonderful opportunity to build a solid foundation of faith, tradition, and theology. 

As a general reminder, if your child is sick or has been exposed to someone with covid — please keep them home. We will have plenty of opportunities for students to participate with us throughout the semester, no need to worry about missing out on any given night!

Continuing with our pattern for this year, we are doing our calendaring month-by-month. The teaching series for October will revolve around “The Stories of Genesis”. Middle schoolers continue to meet from 6:00-7:30pm in the gym and high schoolers continue to meet from 7:30-8:45pm in the Youth Room. 
Our “Special Event of the Month” will be a Halloween Party on Wednesday, October 27th at the regular programmatic times. It will certainly be an extra-fun evening!

PCPC Youth Programming returns Aug. 18, 2021! 
I am thrilled that we will be returning to our usual spaces for youth group (the gym and youth room)! Middle schoolers are invited to join us from 6:00-7:30pm (beginning our time together in the gym). High schoolers are invited to join us from 7:30-8:45pm (beginning our time together in the youth room).

This year we have a general waiver form (below) to be filled out ONCE that will cover students for onsite activities for the entire year. Please have students bring these waivers at their first event. Thank you!

Regarding COVID procedures as we head back into in-person programming: – We will begin the school year requiring students and leaders to wear masks for all in-person events.- If your child has been exposed to COVID please follow proper quarantine protocols. Communication is the best road! If you are unsure what the quarantine should look like, please contact me before allowing your child to return to in-person programming. – We ask that anyone feeling sick at all to please just stay at home. We don’t need any brave souls with the sniffles to join us! Rest and come back healthy.- As a whole, our posture towards community health is cautious and thoughtful. Our desire is to meet in-person, online, and always safely. We are all eager to return to our normalest sense of normal, but we will be patient on the journey! Thank you for partnering with us in these ways.

Regarding pick-up and drop-off: parents are invited to drop off students in the church parking lot or walk them upstairs to the gym (please wear a mask if you choose to walk them in). Upstairs, we will check them in, take their waiver, and get them settled. At the end of middle school youth group, we will have leaders walk them down to the parking lot and stay with them until each student is picked up. 

We are ready to journey through the ups and downs this year will have for us and we are simply excited to be a place of care for the young people of this community!
