Fall 2023 youth program: A Place at the Table

On Sundays this October, junior and senior high youth are invited to participate in a five-week dinner series with Pastor Jen & Pastor Katelyn (Richmond Congregational). Each week, we’ll share a meal together, explore some stories (yes, Bible stories!), and conclude by campfire or candlelight. A Place at the Table will also serve as part 1 of a confirmation program that will be offered in the winter/spring of 2024 to 9th and 10th graders. If you’re interested in confirmation, plan to attend at least 4 weeks of this program, or speak to Pastor Jen about alternatives.

Weekly schedule
4:00-5:00 pm (optional) – gather to prepare the meal*, do homework, or hang out
5:00-5:10 – Check in and pray over the meal.
5:10-5:45 – Eat together.
5:45-6:30 – Explore the stories (origin, deliverance, resistance, gospel, church)
6:30-7:00 – Outdoors on weeks 1 & 5. Candlelight closing in sanctuary during weeks 2-4
*Dinner each week will be vegetarian (soup or stew) with bread, cheese, and fruit sides. If you are interested in helping with any part of the program, including meal prep, speak to Pastor Jen.
