YOUTH GROUP

Youth Group is combined with Manhattan Christian Reformed Church and open to any Middle and High School students. Combined Youth Group meets on Wednesday nights at Amsterdam School from 7 PM to 8:30 PM October through April. There will be a small snack provided during the meeting. 

Youth Group meets and then break up into their respective groups to study current issues facing pre-teens and teens and how to deal with them from a Christian point of view.  Youth enjoy various outings, and special events throughout the year. The young people also sponsor various fund raising events to provide the opportunity to attend the annual Convention as well as participate in SERVE projects and mission projects. Contact Kyle DeBoer(507-227-8312), youth director at Manhattan CRC, for more details.

Please note since this is a combined youth group, you will be redirected to Manhattan CRC site for forms and other information. 

Registration forms are required to be filled out by a parent prior to attending a meeting. Also a waiver is required for Amsterdam School.  Click the link here for the Amsterdam School waiver form, print and bring to Youth Group and turn into a leader.
