Pottstown Youth Group
We are a community of youth from several United Church of Christ Congregations in and directly around the borough of Pottstown, PA, who have decided we can do greater things when we come together than when we do programs individually. Our youth group is for those who are in middle school and high school. If you are interested in contacting us, you can contact any of our sponsoring churches. If your church is not on this list, but you would like to join with us, let us know!
Youth Mission Week 2016
Youth Mission Week begins THURSDAY, July 21 and concludes Tuesday, July 26. We are currently not accepting any more forms for youth or homeowners. We are keeping the youth forms online below for participants who need them.
We are in need of adult volunteers, particularly we need FIVE (5) on-site workers each day, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The work day is from 8:30 to 3:30 pm and all volunteers must have appropriate Child Abuse Clearances from the State of Pennsylvania.
Adult Volunteer Forms
Because of new, stricter Pennsylvania state regulations regarding volunteers who work with children, all adult volunteers must complete Child Abuse Clearances as found on the church website.

Early birds, who have their forms in by May 31 are guaranteed a place in Mission Week.
Forms turned in between June 1 and July 8 will be given space if it is available. You can "Save a place" for yourself and also request that a form be sent to a friend, but a signed paper copy is necessary before you are counted as registered. Click here to download forms.
Resources for Creating a Mission Week in your own Congregation
Our goal is not so much to create a bigger and bigger Mission Week in Pottstown, but rather to create a bigger and bigger influence as more congregations decide to hold Mission Week in their own communities.
