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, and their help has been, and still 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!
