Summer WNYG Backyard Bonfires

Age Range:  High Schoolers

Days/Times:  Every other Sunday – 6:30-9:00 PM

Location: Youth Room & Bonfire Area

Description: Summer is meant to be spent around bonfires, talking and laughing while making smores. If you feel the same way then you are going to want to be at our summer WNYG events. We will be having bonfires and hanging out in the youth room. We are using this as a time to just grow together and enjoy what summer is. We will have smores, and will watch movies in the youth room, we will also have the gym open for games. Come and join us as we hangout  with us and just enjoy and relax at St. Andrew.
