Sunday Morning Bible Study (10:45-11:45 a.m.)

Junior/Senior High School Students - Join us for Sunday school in the fellowship hall. We will be following the Enduring Faith Bible curriculum from Concordia Publishing House. In this series, where we are studying the Old Testament, students learn how to defend their faith. They become prepared to state what they believe about the Bible and why. The Board of Parish Education is super excited for this opportunity to work with a very fun group of students.

Sunday, September 24 ~ The THIRD Annual Kickball Tournament

2021 Champions – The 8th Grade Class      2022 Champions – The Alumni Team

Who will be the champions this year? Get your team together–there is room for 4 teams of 9 players each. Teams can consist of Jr. and Sr. high youth group members, their friends, family, alumni, church members, young and old – lots of diversity! The fee will be $5 per player. The money goes for a great cause – the ROC scholarship! (Last year’s money went to the ROC scholarship which was presented to Hope Plassard.) The money is due, in cash, at registration on that Sunday. You will need to have your team together and let Mrs. Keiser know who is playing with you by one week before the tournament.

12:00 to 12:30 Check In / Lunch Available
12:30 to 2:30 Tourney Time

**Remember, if you are going to be in 6th grade, 7th grade, or 8th grade this year, you are in the Jr. High Youth Group. If you are going to be in grades 9 through 12 this year, you are in the Sr. High Youth Group. (Those who just graduated are welcome to attend youth events until they start college – then come back for alumni events like the Kickball Tournament!) Many events are combined–just look for the details for each event.**

Service Opportunity

A church nursery program is being set up by Mrs. Ivy Meyer. This is a program that St. James has had in the past. When I was in Jr./Sr. High, my church had a nursery program and Jr./Sr. High youth volunteered. I don’t know all of the parameters, but I would imagine that you can contact Mrs. Meyer and tell her you would be interested in helping out in the nursery and then sign up for some times. Don’t do it every Sunday – you need to be in church. I would think once a month would be the high end, with the low end being every once in a while when it works out for your family schedule. Why don’t you contact her, boys and girls, and see how you can help.
