The Youth Group is composed of children and youth from St. John’s, grades 5-12. The leaders are Diane Dalo, Maureen Pinkerman, Dwight Feenstra, and Virginia Army. We try to plan a mix of fellowship and service opportunities each school year. Fellowship opportunities included cookout and games night, bowling, movies, trampoline/bouncing, sledding and an amazing camping trip to Hammonasset Beach and State Park. Service opportunities included helping with Bingo at Fox Hill Nursing Home, helping at FoodShare, visiting the parish’s elderly and shut-ins at Christmas and Easter, the CROP Walk in Manchester, and helping with several of St. John’s mission and ministry projects such as the Relay for Life, the Sole Hope shoe cutting project, and Nut Night.
All the leaders feel privileged to share time, conversation and fellowship with St. John’s extraordinary group of youth. We also appreciate all the parents who helped with transport by driving, often on short notice, this past year!
