10/6 Life Teen Update

Happy October Life Teen families!

Fall is finally in the air (though I think it may be in the 80s next week)!  Lots of stuff going on in Life Teen, so please check out the news below: 

Life Teen Faith Formation:  this consists of 2 components—Family Faith Formation and Decision Point

  • Family Faith Formation: October FACE! bags are ready for pick up!  You can stop by the RE office on Wednesday, 10/7 from 10am-7pm to pick up the bag.  Don’t forget to bring the Touch Base with FACE! form when you pick up your October FACE! bag.  October FACE! bag will be ready for pick up:
  • Decision Point:  This is our once a month Sunday afternoon gathering and weekly reminder to watch a video and answer a question that comes from your “house family”.  Our next gathering will be on Sunday, October 18th from 3pm-4:30pm.  Remember, we meet in the church and wear your mask.  Here are the Decision Point gathering dates for the remainder of the school year:  October 18, November 15, December 13, January 10, February 7, March 7, April 25.  *If you are in need of the virtual option for Decision Point, please email me at  youthministry@stolivers.com.* 

Bible Study:  Life Teen will be having a 4 week GIRLS Bible Study on the Book of Ruth.  Our Girls Bible Study will be led by Life Teen alumni, Hayley Russell (2020 Grad from Belmont Abbey College).  Mark these Thursday dates in your calendar:  10/15, 10/22, 10/29 and 11/5.  Bible Study will be from 7pm-8pm in the Life Teen room.  We will follow all social distance guidelines.  Bring your Bible and wear your mask!!!!  (PS—we haven’t forgotten the guys!)

Ministry Training:  Your parish is looking for the young church (that’s means YOU) to serve at the Sunday, 5pm Life Teen Mass.  We will be having a training on Sunday, 10/25 for anyone interested in serving as a Greeter/Usher, Lector and Eucharistic Minister of Holy Communion (must be 16 and confirmed) from 3:30pm-4:30pm in the church.  We will observe social distance guidelines and wear your mask.  Remember…your parish needs you!

Social Activities:  All teens are invited to attend our Social Distance “Halloweenie Roast” on Saturday, October 31 from 11am-1pm in the lower parking lot (by the Life Teen entrance).  We will do some fun (but safe) Halloween games and roast hot dogs over some grills.  Bring your lawn chair and earn points for your House Family!!
