YOUTH NEWS 5-24-18


There will be a brief meeting for VBS Leaders and Church School Teachers in the Staff Room (previously known as the Chi Rho Room) on Sunday, June 3 after worship. Teachers, please bring your summer schedule. VBS Leaders, please bring your list of needs for VBS. If you have any questions, or need a Leader’s Guide, please contact Rev. James as soon as possible.



We have quite a few youth and adults participating in church camps and our missions trip this summer. Before they head out, we will be blessing their journey. Please join us on Sunday, June 3 during the worship service as we pray over and covenant with our youth and adults.


A great way to show our youth support this summer is to send them letters of encouragement and to pray for them during their time at camp. Our campers this year are:

  • Adam Glaze

M.A.D. Camp (Music, Arts, & Drama)

June 18-23

All of our campers will be at the Geneva Center. If you would like to send them a letter, please write the camp they are attending at the bottom of the envelope  and mail it to:
