Sunday June 1 from 6:30 – 8:30pm in the Youth Room
Greetings Peace Teens and Parents,
We are excited to announce a new summer program for teens in 8th – 11th grade. The process will be run by Mark Hakes, Jackie Falk and Bill Mittlefehldt in an effort to improve personal wellness. We plan to meet for 8 weeks on Sunday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30, starting June 1st and running til July 20th.
We plan to examine and improve eating behavior, physical fitness and relationship skills. These are three elements of our personal wellness. And we hope to have the teen team set goals for themselves, measure their outcomes and share their explanations. There will be a team feeling for our process and will develop a common understanding of the importance of our personal wellness. We need all the talent and gifts our teens possess, and this learning process will help us harness and engage those gifts.
Teen team members will share their assessment of eating, fitness and relationship skills for 8 weeks. In the process, we feel their health will improve. We hope to take some measures of that improvement. Peace youth involved with the Peace Youth Development Team (PYDT) will be encouraged to share their measured improvement and reflections in a Peace.doc file, which can serve as part of their life-long resume. We think this type of learning and health initiative will add focus to their character and spirit, lending direction to their lives. It may add to their employability.
- There will be no cost for participation.
- The only qualification is being in grades 8 – 11.
- The only requirement is that they are affiliated with Peace Church.
We hope this pilot process of Youth Development is a success and can expand in the future.
