We are looking forward to spring here at Otterbein Youth Group! Our group is still growing, with a steady number of about 15 students each week, sometimes more. We are enjoying our games, discussions, and evening worship. Additionally, we are very much looking forward to our leadership at the Easter Sunrise and Youth Sunday services.
What’s Coming Up for the Youth:
We have some fun things planned for April and May! Including….
  • April 2nd: Informational Meeting for parents and students about summer trips and missions. (Meeting during Youth Group dinner, 5:00).  
  • April 16th: Youth lead the Easter Sunrise Service. 7 AM 
  • May 21st: Youth Sunday in the Sanctuary services. 9:00 & 11:15 AM 
  • May 28th: Our 3rd Guys Night/ Girls Night
Special Events:
  • Family Movie Nights:  Bring cozy blankets, chairs, and some snacks to share! Everyone is invited to join us during Youth Group time to watch a family-friendly movie in the Gym. Our next Family Movie Night is May 21st at 5:00. 
  • Career Night, April 23rd:   We would love to invite some Otterbein adults to Youth Group to talk about their careers, how they got to their job, and how they felt God leading them. If you would be interested in sharing your story to our Youth Group, please talk to Chrisanna Rogers.
  • Creative Arts Ministry:  Our students have had lots of fun performing two dramas in the month of December. We also shared some creative pieces in February during our visit to Thornwald Nursing Home on February 19th. We will have creative arts ministry activities throughout the summer. See the bulletin board by the Gym for information and/or talk to Chrisanna if you want to be a part of our creative work!  
How You Can Help:
     Every Sunday night, we serve a dinner to the Youth Group. We are seeking volunteers who would be willing to prepare a meal for the group. Dinner is served at 5:00, and should serve about 15-20 people. This is a great way to support the youth! Please see the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board by the gym. 
     Keep us in your prayers! Working with youth and guiding them through spiritual development is such a special task. Remember to pray for our Youth Group, that they seek God in all they do and shine brightly to their generation!
