From September-April we meet on Sunday nights after AWANA. Several teens help with AWANA and then stay for youth group. We meet on Wed. after school at McDonalds for some encouragement and they get something off the $1 menu. From May-August we used to meet on Wed night, but that's when most adult groups meet. I like to be involved in some of those so this summer it's on Thursday - also, football weight training is on Wed. My teens would prefer Sunday all year, but we switch for the summer so families can leave church to go camping or get out and not have to worry about getting back for youth group. I will take some Sunday nights to do things with a small group of teens. Look at your teen's and parent's schedules.....and your own.

Our youth services are on Wednesday nights. It's a good time in the middle of the week that seems to work best for everyone.

We have our weekly meetings on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. We've tried Mondays, Thursdays, and Sunday nights but Wednesday has proved to be the best fit for us. We lose some students to activities, but that is true no matter what night we meet. Plus I love gathering with the students half way through the week (instead of going 7 days between seeing the majority of them).

Our main youth group meeting is on Sunday Nights, but we have a smaller group that meets for Bible Study on Wednesday nights, and we have a Sunday School program on Sunday mornings. When I first started here I put the question out to parents, teens & youth leaders as well. I think it is exhausting to meet on Sunday nights, but that seems to work for the majority of people. If we met on Wednesdays there would be a lot of teens and volunteers who couldn't make it. I've been involved in other churches, though, where Wednesdays were perfect. It's going to be different for every church, so I think it's wise of you to ask and see what might work. Just watch out for those that say Sundays because it's the norm & not necessarily because it's best.
