YOUTH NEWS 12-7-17

Plans are underway for our annual Youth Christmas Party and Overnight. We’ll have a gift exchange, watch movies, play games, and we may even have a chance to stop by the Sky Zone! Don’t forget to invite a friend or two—the more the merrier!

We are looking at doing this either December 29-30, or January 5-6. If you haven’t done so already, please let Rev. James know which date might work best for you.

To all who helped with shopping for Secret Santa presents for the children of our Christmas Box families– THANK YOU! We had a great turn out, and together we were able to get some really exciting gifts for our 39 children this year.

Thank you, too, to the wonderful staff of Meijer. Not only did they allow for the craziness of our shopping trip, they also supported our efforts with a donation of a $500 Meijer gift card. What a blessing that additional donation has been!

December 10    All-Youth Fellowship & Christmas Box Wrapping, 11:30 a.m.

The shopping is done, and now it’s time to wrap. Wrapping presents for 39 children is no small task so we need all hands on deck!

December 14    Christmas Box Non-Perishable Packing, 6 p.m.

All of the non-perishable food from Aldi will be boxed up and set aside, ready for delivery day.

December 16 Christmas Box Perishable Packing & Deliveries, 8 a.m.

Time to package up the perishable food, gather everything together, and deliver to our 30 Christmas Box families.

December 17 2018 Missions Trip Planning Meeting, 11:30 a.m.
