Youth Group Update

First of all....

Thank you everyone for a wonderful programming year. We are done for the season with the exception of the Mission Trip (see below).

Thanks to all of the parents for bringing meals this year. Things went really well and the meal part is a big part of it. So thanks too to Ed for making that run smoothly too.

Thanks to Ed and Brian for teaching Explorers and to the parents who helped there as well.

Thanks to the folks who drove or chaperoned the Fall retreat. That is a huge help!


The Fall retreat this year is going to be September 13-15 at Pilgrim Point Camp in Alexandria. It is a longer drive and we will probably look into renting a number of vans that the chaperones can drive. I mention this now, so you can get it on the calendar before anything else as this distance will probably make it cumbersome for those might have two things going that weekend.

Mission Trip...

Health forms can be put in my mailbox. There are still  some outstanding.

The Mission Trip Picnic is 6pm on June 12 and the Kleaver/Frawley home. Look for more details in the coming weeks.

Finally....a great opportunity from Dale Thompson....

MacPlymouth Youth Families:
We are currently hosting an exchange student from France, Clement. Clement's family would also like his younger brother, Damien (13 years old, turning 14 in June), to visit Minnesota for about five weeks this summer. He would need a host family. If your family (or one you might know) might be interested, please contact us:  Dale Thompson, 651-698-3472,

About Youth Group (5-7pm), from youth elder Ed Stenhauer:

Hi, all,
This is to let you know that this weekend, we are sending off two of our favorite Youth leaders into the wider world.  Somehow, Marsha and Brian are going to have to make due without us for the time being.  Marsha Berry, for those of you in Jr. High who may not know her, has been a Youth Elder who has participated in many Sr. High mission trips.  And we all know Brian, who is riding off into the sunrise, and the next chapter in his life. 
This will be a great time to share any well-wishes or reflection, should you choose to bring them along for Brian and Marsha.
So, we hope to see you this Sunday at 5, for our regular fellowship, and for the metaphorical waving of our collective cowboy hats.  Adios, and hasta Domingo! (hope I said that right).
