The Hinton Avenue Youth Group ranges in age from 12 to 17 years old and meets from 3:00-4:30 pm on Sundays. Our current missions include Teens Opposing Poverty (feeding the homeless), Mission Trips (including to Chicago in 2009 and Marion, Va in 2011), and working with other youth-oriented groups (like Streetwise Ministries). We have tons of fun, including: paintball, game nights, costume contests, and more!!
The youth have a lot of really fun trips planned for the upcoming months! They will be going to Washington, DC for a weekend of learning at Planet Wisdom in March and then to Savannah, GA in July for a weeklong mission trip! If you are interested in attending or helping at any of these events, please contact Erica Ridgell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The youth have recently returned from their district retreat at West View on the James, and they had an awesome time! They met new people, worshipped together, played some fun games, and packaged 10,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now while they were there.
In the upcoming weeks, the youth will be preparing to participate in the 30 Hour Famine. They will be fasting for 30 hours while doing community service projects. They are raising money for World Vision prior to the event, and every dollar they raise will feed a child for a day. If you are interested in donating or sponsoring a youth for $1 an hour ($30 total) please either let a youth know or email Erica.
