    VBS Maker Fun Factory – VBS is back @ FUMC Hershey! During this week in June, we’d like to see our youth ministry support this important outreach event. There a number of different roles youth and adults can take. Contact Stephen Haverstick or Cindy Fair ( ) if you’re interested in volunteering.

    SPF 70 - On Thursday evenings bi-weekly for 10 weeks, we’ll have a gathering for Scripture, Prayer, and Fellowship! We’ll meet at homes or the Youth Room for bible study and hanging out. Some nights we have swimming and a campfire at the Crowthers. We hope you can join us throughout the summer!

    Summer Ministry - Join us for our Summer Intergenerational Ministry! All are welcome as we gather the first Wednesday of every month this summer with dinner, lessons, music, crafts, and other surprises. Our youth ministry will both participate and serve at this event! We’ll also be needing the youth and some adults to help prepare the meal for August 2nd.

    Impact 2017 - We're going back! The Salt N' Light Impact festival combines powerful worship sessions, elaborate dramas and dances, challenging breakout seminars, outdoor activities, life-changing lessons from Scripture with 7 main stage gatherings, and a relational emphasis through group bonding and campfire settings. It’s like the summer, outdoor version of Zeteo! Camp Greene Hills in Alexandria, PA is our camping location for the 4 days. Students entering 7th grade or older can attend. $55/student. Sign-up deadline is May 21st. Here is a link to the video promo for the event:

    Youth Sunday - The youth will be planning, organizing, and leading the 8am and 11am Traditional services on this day. Youth are encouraged to attend the planning/rehearsal meetings, but can still participate if they are unable.

    Orange WeekendOrange is all about joining two separate influences, the church (yellow) and the home (red) into 1 more powerful influence. This weekend will be dedicated to the re-launching of the Orange vision and strategy within our church. An Orange specialist will be leading an all-day seminar on Saturday and guest-speaking on Sunday. We hope you will prioritize this weekend to learn more about Orange and help us integrate this vision into our ministries. Learn more about what Orange is here:

    SNL Fall Kick-Off – First SNL (Sunday Night Life) youth group of the new school year!! We’ll have plenty of food, fun, games, and a crazy, surprise activity. Come prepared to get wet! The whole family is welcome. This is a great event to bring a friend and welcome them into our youth ministry family for the new school year!
