We can’t wait for our summer Youth Group plans here at Otterbein! Our group has some fun things planned for almost every week of the summer... “Otterbonding,” as we call it, is very important to us! We can’t wait to get together throughout the summer months and dive into God’s word, go on special trips, serve locally, and have lots of fun along the way!  

What’s Coming Up for the Youth:
Summer Bible Study Series: AWAKEN. We will meet from 5:00-7:30 on the following Sunday dates. All middle school and high school students are welcome. Snacks provided!
  • June 18th, July 9th, July 16th, August 13th, August 27th
We will continue to have Family Movie Nights on the following Sunday Dates. They start at 5:00 in the gym…EVERYONE is welcome! Bring cozy things for gym-movie-watching. Snacks provided!
  • June 11th, July 23rd, August 20th
CAMO: Creative Arts Ministry at Otterbein. We will meet Wednesdays during the summer, 4:00-6:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to come and play, learn, and create pieces that demonstrate the truth of the Gospel through creativity.

Special Events:
Youth Fundraiser Dinner
     Our Youth Group is hosting a fundraiser dinner in the gym on Saturday, June 24th at 6:00. This is a free full course meal, with the option to tip your waiters—the Otterbein Youth Group Members. Any donations will go towards the costs of special events the Youth Group attends throughout the year. Entertainment will be provided too!
     On Friday July 21st, the youth are invited to sleepover at the church for a lock-in! The theme for the night is: Escape Room! Middle School and High School students are welcome, food will be provided all night long along with a lack of sleep! Pick up is Saturday morning at 10:00 am.
York Mission Trip: A Week of Hope
     Five students from the Youth Group are set to serve the city of York June 25-June 30 as part of Group’s Week of Hope organization. We are looking forward to the opportunity to reach out and impact York. Keep us in prayer!
IMPACT Festival
     As we do every summer, we will be attending Salt n’ Light Youth Ministry’s IMPACT Festival in Altoona, PA. We are camping out and attending seminars, worship sessions, concerts, and fun activities. IMPACT is July 26-July 30, and we are anticipating bringing a big group from Otterbein this year.

How You Can Help: Keep us in your prayers! Working with youth and guiding them through spiritual development is such a special task. Remember to pray for our Youth Group, that they seek God in all they do and shine brightly to their generation!
