Those can-do youths at Parkview United Methodist

By: 16 January 2011 One Comment

The youth group at Parkview United Methodist Church in Benton, Ark., is small, scrappy and ready to do some great things this year.

Let’s see what they have in store, shall we? First of all, the group is looking to grow and is hoping to attract more members. Who can join the Parkview Youth? Anyone who is in at least sixth grade.

How can one join? Just show up at an event (more on that in a bit), show some interest in joining and the group will handle the rest. The group met tonight and discussed a few things such as better communications and some upcoming events.

On the communications front, the group has set up a Facebook page and a Twitter account in hopes of letting members know what the Parkview Youth are doing. You’ll find the group on Facebook by clicking here and the Twitter feed is here. Of course, the Parkview Youth have set up an email address at

As for events, the group has one coming up in just a few days — head on out to Parkview United Methodist Church at 514 N. Border St. (that’s right across the road from Benton Junior High School) at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 21 for free pizza and a showing of Tooth Fairy staring Dwayne Johnson.

On Feb. 13, the Parkview Youth group is planning on showing another free movie — Toy Story 3 — and serving lunch. There will be more details on that, but the event will take place around noon after services are over on Feb. 13. We’ll have more details on that before long.

By the way, that term “free” is highly subjective. No one will be turned away, but the Parkview Youth group is requesting any donations of all who attend. Why? Those donations will pay for other activities throughout the year. What activities? Trips to Magic Springs in the summers, visits to a movie theater in town, a bowling trip, possibly a bonfire — all kinds of things.

We’ll mention those activities as they are scheduled here at First Arkansas News, and make sure to follow the group on the aforementioned Facebook and Twitter sites as they will be posted there, too.
