YOUTH NEWS 12-21-17

Plans are well underway for our annual Youth Christmas Party and Overnight on Friday, January 5. We’ll jump-start the night with a trip to the Sky Zone. When we return to the church, we’ll have a gift exchange, watch movies, play games, and so much more! Don’t forget to invite a friend or two—the more the merrier!

RSVP by Sunday, December 31 by email or text to Rev. James so we can plan for the rides and reservations for Sky Zone… and have enough snacks to last the night!!

I want to thank our dedicated Youth Sponsors who have helped me over this past year with Youth activities, All-Youth Fellowships, bible studies, fundraisers, and the Youth Summer Missions Projects. Mariangella Glaze, Andy Rees, and Wendy Rees have been our long-time Youth Sponsors, helping in all areas of youth ministry, and their help is invaluable to me and to the success of the Youth Ministry.

As we move into 2018, I want to invite any in our congregation who may have a desire to serve as a Youth Sponsor to contact me. As our Youth Ministry grows, it takes many hands and many minds to plan, coordinate, and implement our many activities.

Our youth are the future of the church. What better way to shape that future for the better than to invest our time today!
