Rising 6th Grade Meet and Greet
When: August 22nd at 6:00pm
Where: Chapman Youth Room
For all rising 6th grade students and parents, you are invited to an “Ice Cream Social Meet & Greet” with Dane, Julia and a few current students in the Youth Room. This will be an opportunity for you and your student to talk to some current students, ask questions and look around the space before promotion Sunday & Kick-Off (September 9). This will be a small gathering intended to make parents and students feel comfortable during the transition.
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.

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.

Paul’s brief, yet powerful letter to the Ephesians is written to a group of somewhat new believers. In studying the book, students won’t discover long-winded or heavy theological treatises. Instead, they will find messages of comfort, a call to examine their gifts, and tools for finding the resources to handle any problem they face in life. Each week’s lesson will encourage teens to ask difficult questions and empower them to find the answers.
