The following is a list of Save- The- Dates for Youth Fellowship
and their families. Mark your calendars.

YF Calendar 

 Our Youth Fellowship program continues to grow and thrive, offering our youth various opportunities to engage in  fun, friendly and faith building experiences. Both YF groups have also received a special invitation to enjoy a concert at St Cecilia’s featuring Joseph Reed and Synergy, from 7-8:30pm on Feb 28th . For more details on these and other YF activities in February, please see the Branchline or the attached calendar.

Please consider yourself personally invited to make a difference in a child’s life by sharing your time and talents in support of the youth of Wilbraham United Church. The Education Commission is always looking for adult volunteers to support our many regular and special event offerings. Some opportunities include: Sunday School teachers and substitutes, Youth Advisors, Retreat and 30-Hour famine chaperones, snack makers, planning committees, Vacation Bible School support, and much more. We can utilize any skills and time commitments available.  Please feel free to contact Carrie Kagan to express your interest and/or learn more.  

As always if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to any member of the Education Commission.  Feedback is a gift, and your Education Commission members love presents!!!

Faithfully, your Education Commission
