Our youth group at OLP is growing! Over the past three years the youth group has facilitated the Vacation Bible School program, collected books, school supplies, toiletries, and diapers, for children and families in need in our area, and have attended Adoration and retreats. They have participated in the PADS program at Hopes Front Door and assisted with a back-to-school supply drive. Along with service, the youth group loves to have fun. They have gone to Laser Tag, had several water balloon battles, played Ghost in the Graveyard, they have enjoyed many movie nights and even played the human version of Hungry, Hungry, Hippos!
In the coming year the youth group will continue with service and fun. They plan to hold a Bake Sale to raise money for victims of the recent hurricanes, give gifts to a family in need for Christmas, as well as volunteering with children who have special needs. They are also going to have a Halloween party with a “Mad Scientist” theme, Thanksgiving Day Potluck meal, a PJ’s and Hot Cocoa party, and an Anti-Valentine’s Day party, they have dubbed “Halloween II”. If you are interested in joining or just looking for more information, check the information board in the back of the church, visit the website at olopdarien.org, or follow them on Instagram at olp.youth.ministry.
