Hospitality Team

Who: 6-12 graders
Where: Youth Room
Time: Every Other Sunday 6:15-7:15 p.m.

This team will meet every other week on Monday evenings, though the bulk of the work will be done outside of regular meeting times. Youth will design and implement a system that welcomes new members, reaches out to members who have been absent, and provides care for members who are struggling. Youth will also engage in scripture and learn how to effectively care for each other in Christian love. If you see enjoy meeting new people, find deep value in caring for others, and are comfortable using technology to connect to other youth, this is the group for you.


Event Planning Team

Who: 6-12 graders
Where: Youth Room
Time: Every Other Sunday 6:15-7:15 p.m.

This team will meet every other week on Monday evenings to plan some major youth events, the biggest of which is our fundraiser Night at the Bistro. Youth will be responsible for generating creative ideas as well as implementing them before and during the events. There will be some work required outside of meeting times. Youth will also engage in scripture and learn what it means to be in church leadership while putting those skills into practice with adult supervision and mentoring. If you are organized, enjoy planning, and have great ideas you want to see come to life, this is the group for you.


Marketing Team

Who: 6-12 graders
Where: Youth Room
Time: Every other Monday 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.

This team will meet every other week on Monday evenings to brainstorm ways to communicate youth events and announcements to all involved. If you are organized, enjoy being intuitive, and have new ways to disseminate information, this is the group for you.


Youth Advisory Council (YAC)

Where: Youth Room
Time: Every Other Monday 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

YAC members partner with Beth to make decisions about the overall direction of Manchester Youth. They come up with new ideas as well as brainstorming solutions to problems. In order to be on YAC you have to be on another leadership team (Marketing, Event Planning, Hospitality, Band, Cantate, or Tech team).  


Middle School Meet-Up

Who: 6-8th graders
Where: Youth Room
Time: Wednesdays 6:00-7:30 p.m. September 2020 through May 2021

Middle School Meet-Up is a smaller, informal gathering of middle schoolers. Youth play games together, grow in faith through small group discussion, and do art and mission projects. This is a great alternative for youth who would prefer a smaller setting than the larger Youth Group on Sundays.


God’s Gamers

Who: 6-12th graders
Where: Youth Room
Time: Tuesdays 6:00-7:30 p.m.

God’s Gamers are a small group of youth who love video games! They play together, pray together, and enjoy being a small, tight-knit community.
