SPYF is once again offering separate fall retreats for middle school (gr.6-8) and high school (gr.9-12) students:
SPYF HIGH SCHOOL RETREAT -- ***CHANGE*** -- NOVEMBER 17-19
We will leave after school on Friday for this early-season weekend at Wesley Forest Camp just for SPYF high school students and leaders. This fun and restful time away together will include hikes, great camp food, games, worship, learning, and growth as a group.
*GUEST SPEAKER: Rev. Millard Fisher
The cost for this retreat is $90 per student.*
*As always, scholarships are available to families for whom the cost of the weekend would be prohibitive.
*SPYF Multi-Kid Discount Policy: Families sending three or more kids to retreats will pay fees for two of them, regardless of the total number of kids. Scholarship policy applies.

Sunday evening SPYF meetings will begin for the fall on September 17th. Meeting on the 3rd floor of the Education Center this fall, SPYF begins with dinner each week at 5:30, followed by a lesson, discussion, and game time, which wraps up at 8pm. All in grades 6-12 are welcome!
Would you be willing and able to provide dinner for SPYF on one Sunday evening this fall? A couple of important points for our SPYF Hosts:
* Please keep all food free of nuts because of severe allergies in our group.
* Please provide a meatless option for those who wish to eat a vegetarian diet.
* Please plan to serve dinner around 5:45PM.
* Please prepare to be appreciated in a big way by our SPYF students and leaders.
This fall, a new SPYF Sunday School class will meet at 9:15 on Sunday mornings on the 3rd floor of the Education Center, beginning September 10th. This class will provide another study opportunity for SPYF students. Led by a team of volunteers from St. Paul’s, the Sunday school class will also provide an opportunity for St. Paul’s youth to build deeper relationships with other generations from the St. Paul’s & Wesley Foundation family. All students in grades 6-12 are welcome!
