Who?     Middle School and High School (Grades 6-12)
When?   5:00-7:00 pm Sunday evenings
Where?  Witherspoon Hall (Campus Map)

DINNER — Every Youth Group meeting begins with dinner, so come hungry! Volunteers provide dinner and dessert for approx. 20 kids and 2 adult leaders and are welcome to join us for dinner and to meet the kids! We need your help! Contact Kris Goorsky or Sarah Tittle if you would like to sign up. Food sensitivities are always respected.


Kicking off youth group with dinner is a long-standing tradition that has brought together IPC youth and adults for decades through the custom of “breaking bread.”

This is a time to get to know the awesome youth we have at Immanuel while blessing the ministry in a tangible way. We invite you to continue this tradition and we thank you for investing in the lives of our young people!

A Meal Train thumbs up! —”Thank you Immanuel for providing dinner for us!”
