Youth Group — Serving in Jesus’ Name

YOUTH GROUP welcomes all youth in the 7th through 12th grades.  Our regular meetings during the school year are usually held on the first and third Sunday of the month from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Youth Suite.  This is located on the third floor of the youth building (to the rear of the main church building).  Room 303 is filled with plush couches and bean bag chairs for a place to relax and have discussions.  There is also a refrigerator and snack bar.  Room 304 has a pool table that doubles as a ping pong table, foosball and video games and more couches and chairs for hanging out. 

Regular meetings include time for building relationships with God and with others.  Games may be played in the room, the hallway or our gym.  A lesson taught in a fun and exciting way opens up our thoughts about our Christian faith.  There really is something for everyone at regular meetings!

Our group has many special events during the year, such as Lock-Ins, bowling, Penn State Football, kayaking and picnics at Cordorus State Park and an annual retreat at Camp Nawakwa.  For more information about our Youth Group, please talk to any youth group member or contact one of our Adult Leaders.  Adult Leaders are Tim and Christine Peck (717-476-9920/717-476-9977), Scott and Lynelle Livelsberger (717-521-9506/717-521-9508), David Kurtz and Diane Coppola. 

Our Youth Group e-mail address is: youth@stmattlutheran.org.  Be sure you are signed up for REMIND notices on your phone.  That’s where you’ll get any last minute changes that are made due to weather or other circumstances.  Please contact Tim or Chris Peck at 717-476-9920 or 717-476-9977 if you are not already on or for more information.
