Fountain Club gathers weekly from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Sundays in Room 205, with the exception of the summer months. This time slot allows youth to participate in the worshipping and serving life of the church in addition to claiming the church as "their own" at the end of the day. The goal of Fountain Club is to provide a community of safety and inclusion where high school youth have the opportunity to discover and explore spiritual and religious concepts within the context of their daily lives.
Fountain Club Decides Northern Arizona As Destination
For Summer of 2014 Service and Sightseeing Trip
The Fountain Club continues to plan their summer trip to Flagstaff, Arizona. They will leave Kalamazoo on June 15th, via Amtrak, and return to Michigan on June 22nd. The Club considered extending their trip so they could do additional volunteer work and sightseeing but college testing, summer jobs, senior graduation parties, and additional travel costs led to keeping the trip at its original length. Currently, the itinerary includes working at a local food bank, hiking into the Grand Canyon, reading to children at a homeless shelter, touring the Hopi Nation, and exploring some of the National Monument Canyons near Flagstaff. Some additional activities under consideration include combining a hike through some remarkable cliff formations with doing volunteer work repairing foot paths at one of the National Monument Canyons, exploring Flagstaff, and enjoying a unique natural water slide at Slide Rock State Park north of Sedona. We wish to thank the congregation for its generous support shown in our fundraising efforts!
