The Dranesville United Methodist Church Youth Group meets every other Sunday from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  All youth that are in grades 6 to 12 are welcome!  Karen Rizzo, mom of 2 teens and substitute teacher, has been volunteering for the past 5 years as the Youth Group Leader.

Each year we try to include activities and meetings that focus on mission and service work, Scripture, prayer, fellowship, and fun.  The youth group is a safe place for discussions on all areas of spiritual growth. Occasionally, the group travels to locations outside of the church to do mission work and fellowship.  We have participated in Operation Christmas Child, the Pittsburgh Project, the 30-hour Famine with World Vision, Kids Konnection, a local Photos with Santa, and two painting projects for churches in Southern Virginia.  For the last 4 years, the group has taken a summer trip to Lake Junaluska, NC, for a youth discipleship retreat.

If interested, please contact the church at 703-430-3137

May God, who teaches us to reach out to others, continue to remind us to be caring in this group and at home with our families.  May God be with us while we’re apart this week and bring us safely back together in celebration of your love. Amen
