Highlights of Some 2016-17 Meetings:
At St. Luke's on November 16, the group burned their woes and then roasted marshmallows on the ashes of their woes.
At St. Paul's on November 2, golden doodle puppies visited youth group to be socialized.
At St. Luke's on October 19, the group learned about the Day of the Dead and how it relates to All Souls Day and All Saints Day. They ate skull cookies and decorated plastic and marshmallow skulls.
Special meeting on Tuesday, February 28 at the Pancake Supper fundraiser for the mission trip.
Every Sunday (September through May) from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m., for 5th grade and up.

Mission Trip 2018
It's going to be awesome!
We will spend a day volunteering at Hearts and Horses.
And then it's off to Rocky Mountain National Park where we will spend a day building/improving trails.
And now for the fun part:
Thanks to the generous support of the folks at St. Luke's and our bake sale, we have enough to spend the night at Highlands Retreat Center and participate in the Ropes Course and Rock Climbing. YEA!!
Did we say it was going to be awesome!!
The Colorado Youth Leadership Initiative (Rising 9th & 10th Graders)
What does it mean to be a servant leader, work as a team, and bring your full heart and faith into every aspect of your life? Through team and individual challenges, students learn judgment and decision-making skills based in God and faith and how to apply them with compassion as servant leaders in the world. Team-building, spiritual practice, and exploration are central to this program.
COYLI is a three-year commitment.* More information, and to apply here.
