Smith Church sponsors three youth groups – the SCENE for grades 1-5, RBA for grades 6-8, and InCasts from grades 9-12.  All groups are free and open to all youth in Hillsboro and the surrounding communities, and thrive on the representation of youth from all church affiliations (or no affiliation).

We kicked off the youth group season with a potluck cookout on Wednesday, September 20 and wow (!), it was definitely the place to be. Thank you to all the parents who brought potluck dishes to add to our hot dogs and burgers prepared by Phil Daley.  Fran kept the youth busy with paper bag skits while Rusty, Barbara and Keith talked to the parents about our program.

 Looking ahead to October, we'll have a day adventure one day (details coming soon) and then everyone (youth, parents, families, adults) are invited to the annual pumpkin carving on Sunday afternoon, October 29 at 2 p.m. in the vestry. We will have around 100 pumpkins to carve to go to Butler Park for the annual Halloween celebration, so please come help and bring your carving tools!

If you would like more information about our youth groups or know someone who might be interested in joining, please contact co-leaders Barbara Daley (464-5239,; Keith Audette (680-0484,; Fran Charron (464-3630,; or Rusty Wightman (401-8223,
