Upcoming Events and Activities
Summer Volunteer Opportunity
Did you know many kids lack access to books in the summer causing a “summer slide” in reading test scores? Help be part of the solution this summer by volunteering to be a reading buddy for elementary aged children at REFUGEE SUPPORT SERVICES. A group will go out from Providence every Wednesday (except July 4) this summer from 10 am to 12 pm to lead reading activities and games for the kids at the center. Parents can come and volunteer with their youth or there will be a sign-up to ride the church bus that will leave at 9:30 am and return at 12:30 pm. There is a weekly sign-up but no commitment to attend all the weeks.
We also need one adult chaperone each week to help out. SIGN UP for the week that you can help out!
All students under 18 who sign up need to provide their name and basic contact information at the following volunteer registration site:
Students should note that they are coming for the Book Buddies summer program. This will only be used to help the organization track volunteer hours. Adults should complete the full application, and we will send the link for a background check. We are currently checking into whether we can share the background check information with RSS directly from the church.

What To Expect:
Local Missions That Have A Lasting Impact
Paired with local organizations, your students will have the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ with three hours of hands-on missions. PASSPORT works with community leaders to ensure that all mission projects are meaningful and offer sustainable value to the communities we serve.
Low-Pressure Worship Experience Aimed At Equipping Students For A Lifetime Of Faith
Our team works all year thoughtfully preparing messages that create meaningful conversations within your group, and deepen each student’s relationship with Jesus. Your students will find PASSPORT is an intimate, grace-filled, low-pressure environment where they can explore and grow their relationship with Jesus.
Programming That Puts An Emphasis On Youth Group Relationship
Think of us as your week-long ministry support staff; we take care of the logistics and programming of camp, and give you the freedom to focus on the spiritual growth of your students while cultivating community within your group.

Sunday School Summer Teaching Schedule
Summer is alost here and with that comes the new worship times at Providence. Starting May 20th, Sunday School will move back to start at 9:00 start and we will move to a combined Middle School and High School Sunday School class.
To make this work, we need you to look at your summer schedule and sign up for the weeks that you can teach. So that there are two adults in each class (married couples count as 1), Middle School teachers will need to sign up for 4 weeks and High School teachers will need to sign up for 3 weeks to cover the entire summer. You can work with your teaching partner to figure out teaching responsibilities.
We have a new way for parents to share their thoughts and opinions with us about the Student Ministry. The form is not a one and done survey but more of a tool you can use to share general thoughts about your child, their spiritual development, and direction of the Student Ministry.
d365 provides inspirational and relevant reflections on scripture for young people. The devotional experience is written especially for students and seeks to provide reflections on themes that impact our faith journey. The hope is that d365 will create a quiet space in your life for meditation and prayer. A new devotion is available every day online or through mobile devices.
