Questions? Kayleigh Lopez ( ) - Minister of Youth, ext. 18
Hey High School Families,
I wanted to let you know that we have an on campus and in person High School Youth Bible Study/Worship Experience on Sundays from 4:00-6:00PM.
*Updates or changes to our time or dates will be communicated via WhatsApp. Please check the WhatsApp messages regularly to be up-to-date on the High School Youth Bible Study/Worship Experience.
We meet in Hensley Square at a distance of 6 feet to make social distancing possible. All youth in attendance will be required to wear a mask since we will be sitting in the same location for an extended period of time. We will taking temperatures as the youth arrive, their temperature cannot exceed 100.4.
We ask that you self-regulate. If you have not been feeling well or show any of the symptoms listed by the CDC, have been exposed to COVID-19 or have taken fever reducing medication in the last 24 hours; we ask that you remain home and take care of yourself.
- Bibles will be provided and sanitized after use. You are more than welcome and even encouraged to bring your own Bible.
- Hand sanitizer will be provided.
- All chairs, tables and restrooms will be sanitized before and after the evening.
If your child is entering into their freshman year of High School, I would like to add them to the High School Youth Group WhatsApp.
The High School Youth Group communicates through “WhatsApp”. “WhatsApp” is a free messaging application on Smart phones that will allow for the user to send and receive text messages, calls, photos, videos and voice messages.
Text message is one of the biggest ways I communicate with the Youth Group about upcoming Bible Studies and events. Over the last year is has become apparent that using standard text messaging is no longer a viable option.
Our Youth Group has outgrown the ability to have all of our members in a single group chat via standard text message. “WhatsApp” helps to eliminate that problem and will allow for Android and iPhones users to communicate in the same group chat.
Please consider allowing your child to download and use the “WhatsApp” so that this line of communication may continue. If you have any questions about this App please feel free to email, call or text me. I had attached a picture of the app so you can make sure you are using the correct one.
