U-CREW: WEEKLY FELLOWSHIP

Under the conditions of the pandemic, U-Crew looks a lot different this Fall 2020!  We will meet from 4-5 p.m. every Sunday (no dinner this time, sorry, folks!).  The first Sunday of the month we will meet online via Zoom for a fun experience with worship and small groups.  Every other Sunday we will meet in person on the front lawn of the church for socially distanced small groups.  It is imperative that everyone wears a mask to participate in person!  The Youth Ministry Team will evaluate weekly the safety of our in person gatherings.

Rain Plan:  In the event of bad weather on an in person Sunday, a zoom link will be sent out Sunday and U-Crew will be held online.

 Confirmation is for current 8th graders and usually begins in January. We are presently waiting to see how the pandemic will affect this year’s Confirmation plans, so please reach out to Charlie to learn more. 8th Graders and their families will receive information about Confirmation starting in November.
