T-Shirts Are Here!
IF you let me know a few months ago what size you wanted, I will have your Youth Group T-Shirt available for pick up during our Dec. 4th Youth Group meeting. IF you did not order one, please let me know your size and I will gather names and sizes for our next order. Don’t worry Pastor Randy will be on that order, too… 🙂
Youth to Offer a Welcome Home Breakfast
The youth group will be offering a “Welcome Home Breakfast” to our college-age youth (now called Youth Into the World) and their families at 10:30 AM (after the 9:30 service) on Dec. 18. This is a wonderful mission that our youth will benefit from in their own future! Please arrive at 9:30 in the kitchen area for your assignment, Sunday morning Dec. 18. Plan to be at youth group in coming weeks to help make decorations and also try to be here to serve on that Sunday morning!
On Dec. 18th we will have an ALL YOUTH Christmas Party at 4:00 – 5:30 in the Narthex. To participate in the White Elephant Gift Exchange here are the rules….. FIND A GIFT – at your home. Something not ruined or broken, but perhaps a video game, a stuffed animal, decoration or book that you no longer want that PERHAPS someone else does. Not a gag gift, not an undesirable gift, but a “gently used item” that perhaps someone else might enjoy. IF you cannot find something, pick up something for $5 or less. Remember if you want your gift to be wanted, find something you think will be fought over! We’ll have snacks and refreshments, but not dinner that day.

Youth Led Church Services, Jan. 22
Plans are coming together for the youth led church services on Sunday, Jan. 22. Watch for more details. Some of our youth are already working on some things. Do you have an idea? I’ll always take suggestions. I heard one last Sunday that I’m going to try to implement! I’m always open to LISTENING to new ideas! We’ll need greeters, ushers, singers and more! Stay tuned!
Dates for Summer Mission Trips
Do you need Christmas ideas? Tell someone you have a retreat and a mission trip you’d like to attend and perhaps they could help you with your registration costs as a Christmas present! Put the retreat and mission trip date on the calendar and start saving your dollars.
