JOIN US FOR FUN AND FELLOWSHIP!

Youth Fellowship is a foundational part of the youth ministry program at Lewinsville. This is a sacred time for youth grades 7-12 to come together with their friends and peers. Everyone is welcome into a safe space that is filled with laughter, love, and exploration.

We meet every Sunday evening from 6:15-8:15 pm. Our gathering includes dinner, games, activities, and discussions. No topic is off limit as we stand in the intersection of where our faith meets everyday life.

In addition to Sunday evenings, we meet regularly for meals, for social events and adventures.

BABYSITTERS NEEDED!

babysitterMany of the families with young children in the church have been asking if there are any youth who are interested in babysitting.  My answer is always “YES!”  Therefore, we are putting together a babysitting list that can be handed out to families in the church who are interested in having youth babysit.  If you are interested in having your name added to this list email the church office with the following information:

  • Your Name
  • High School graduation year
  • Cell Phone/Home Phone number (wherever you want to be contacted)
  • Where do you live? (not your address, but the general area. For example: Reston or Great Falls or McLean)
  • Do you drive?
