14 SPIRIT.OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1978 The Church... 00.THE HOPE OF OUR Mountainside Youth Rally Sunday Evening Young people living on the western slope of the Blue Ridge are invited to a Mass Youth Rally to be held Sunday evening at 7 o'clock at the Chestnut Hill United Methodist Church. All young people, seventh grade through senior high school (about 12 through 18 years of age) are invited to attend. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the needs of the mountainside young people and explore ways of meeting them. It is being called by the Chestnut Hill Directions Task Group in response to complaints of the young people about the lack of activities and programs for mountain youth. Following the mass youth rally there will be a weenie roast sponsored by the Chestnut Hill United Methodist Church. Two groups will be formed and officers elected, should enough young people express an in- terest; one group would serve the needs of the younger teen- ager, the other older teens. A spokesman for the Direc- tions Task Group emphasized that the rally and weenie roast is for all youth living on the mountainside, and that the programs and activities are directed to the total community, not just members of the Shenandale Parish.

It means a father and mother sharing the beauty and excite- ment of God's world with their children. The hike together. The picnic together. The working together and playing together that Home inspires. Just ask the psychol- ogists -- and sociologists -- and criminologists -- what values are found along "the together trail," or lost when family living misses its mark. Worship and religious train- ing belong, too, on the together trail. Faith grows best in an at- mosphere of sharing. Character thrives in the sunlight of Chris- tian example. In the .church of your choice there's precious opportunity for you -- and yours. The Church is the together trail of God's Family!
