Youth Summer SMall Groups

In Person Small Groups are Cancelled for the rest of July. 


Signal Crest Youth will be meeting in person in outdoor small groups on Sunday evenings from 7 pm - 8 pm at various locations. Should the weather not cooperate (rain/thunderstorms), youth small groups will be moved online for that evening. 

During our current phase, groups are limited to 10 people (8 students, 2 small group leaders) per the Holston Conference Guidelines.  These small groups are a perfect opportunity for more intentional faith formation for your student. 

As such, RSVP's will be required for each student attending each week.  Once we have the students identified that will be attending, rosters and locations will be prepared and emails will be sent on where your student(s) will be meeting.  

Please review and ensure you understand our full set of Signal Crest UMC small group guidelines found here.  

Please Note:

Should your student have a fever of greater than 100.4 within the last 14 days, we ask that they stay home from Youth Small Groups.

Should your student be diagnosed or be around anyone suspected of/diagnosed of COVID-19 within the last 14 days, we ask that they stay home from Youth Small Groups. 

Students will be required to wear masks.

Students will be required to social distance.

Upon arriving to Youth Small Groups, student temperatures will be checked. Any student who has a fever of greater than 100.4  will be asked to leave as will any other students that rode with them.

Students will be encouraged to greet one another in non-touch ways such as air high fives, waves, etc (i.e. no fist bumps, handshakes, etc).

To also minimize touching of common items and maintain social distancing, there will be no organized sports or physical activities that make it impossible to maintain proper guidelines.

To minimize students needing to enter host homes, please encourage your student to use the restroom prior to attending Youth  Small Group.  Host home restrooms will only be used for emergencies.  

Students are asked to bring a chair, their Bible, and a pen to Youth Small Group.
