Students

It’s no mistake that we call our main youth space “Youth Haven.” Anyone who’s ever been a teenager knows how much you need a place to feel relaxed, secure and happy at that age. Even better, this place can help students grow confident that God loves them and gives peace and assurance through every tough situation.
 

Sunday Bible Study & Worship

9:10 – 10:10 a.m. Sunday School
10:10 – 10:30 a.m. Fellowship Time
10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Worship
Sunday Bible Study begins at 9:10 a.m. for grades 6 – 12 in “Youth Haven,” our hangout space downstairs under the Fellowship Hall. Before the worship service (which starts at 10:30 a.m.), grab a doughnut in the Welcome Room across from the Sanctuary.
 

SNL (Sunday Night Live) – See calendar below

6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Sundays (September – May)
During the school year, come out for dinner and fun at Sunday Night Live, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. We start in the Fellowship Hall and sometimes end up outside or in the Multipurpose Room. Occasionally, we’ll go to other locations for special activities like eating out, bowling, movies, scavenger hunts, etc. The schedule may vary during the year based on other church events.
 

Wednesdays

5:15 – 6:00 p.m. Dinner
6:00 – 7:35 p.m. Youth Hangout, Homework & Sharing Time
On Wednesdays (September – May), youth have time to hang out, take a break from the school day and share good stuff or concerns they need to discuss and pray for.
 

Special Events – See calendar below

In addition to the weekly Sunday and Wednesday activities, we get together at other times for serious and not-so-serious stuff. Youth and parents on our Youth Council help plan outings, lock-ins, middle school and high school retreats, and mission fundraising activities. Need some examples? Video scavenger hunts, “Unplugged” retreat, midnight bowling, to name a few.
 

Missions

We also believe in hands-on opportunities to help others, learn real skills and practice sharing our faith with others. Every summer, our students can participate in a local or regional mission trip, such as repairing homes through Appalachia Service Project. Every other summer, our high school juniors and seniors get a life-changing taste of international missions, sharing God’s love with people in places like Guatemala, Belize, Haiti and Cuba.
 
Come on to Youth Haven. Friends are always welcome!
 

Upcoming Events

 
Lunch Bunch!  
SUNDAY, MARCH 8  /  After the 10:30AM Worship Service
Meet at Jason’s Deli in the Crossroads Shopping Center, Cary, for lunch, laughs and catch-up time. Bring your own money for lunch. Parents and families welcome… but you can sit at a different table! (NOTE: There will be no SNL tonight because several leaders will be out of town.)
 
Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event  
SATURDAY, MARCH 14  /  10AM, followed by Lunch / FREE! 
Make plans to be in the Multipurpose Room (in the Preschool Building) at 10AM. We’ll join the Woodhaven on Mission team for a family-friendly Rise Against Hunger meal packaging event. Register online here, or simply call the church office at 919-362-0127. This is a fun, fast-paced mission opportunity, with lots of different jobs to choose from! (And, you look really cool in a hairnet! But if that’s not your style, just bring a baseball cap to wear instead.) Some of our Woodhaven adults will be making a BBQ lunch to share after the packing event. Be sure to wear a Woodhaven T-shirt if you have one.
 
PLEASE NOTE: Since we have the Rise Against Hunger event on Saturday, there will be no SNL on Sunday, March 15. Just relax at home!
 
SNL (Sunday Night Live) – March 22  
SUNDAY, March 22 /  6:00 – 8:00PM / $4 for dinner / Multipurpose Room  
Come on out for SNL, and bring a friend! We’re still figuring out the plan — probably some active games, possibly outside if the weather cooperates. (Got ideas? Let us know!) Parents: Sign up to provide SNL dinner!
 
SNL – March 29  
Sunday, March 29 / 6:00 – 8:00PM / $4 for dinner / Multipurpose Room… and beyond!
Let’s go on a scavenger hunt! If you have a phone, please bring it. We’ll team up and carpool (with parent volunteer drivers) to find a fun list of “treasures,” some actual items and some in pictures. We will need volunteers to drive groups of 3-4 youth. You’ll need to RSVP for this one to ensure that we have enough drivers! Parents: Sign up to provide SNL dinner!
 
Other youth event details coming soon!

We’ll have some downtime in early April with traditional school Spring Break and the Easter season. Be on the lookout for worship opportunities during Easter: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and, of course, Easter Sunday. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions. Contact Amy Fisher at 919-622-2721.
