SENIOR HIGH LOCK OUT
Put it on your calendar! April 29-30. We are spending a night out! Your parents WILL need to sign a liability waiver (will be on the Youth News Rack) AND agree to drop you off and pick you up. Since we will be out all night, I do not want you driving yourselves home. Our schedule is loosely as follows (drop off time and location will be determined and announced through Remind, as the movie schedule won’t be out till the Tuesday before):
10 PM-ish – a movie
Midnight – bowling
2 AM – Village Inn for food
3 AM – Feeding Parker’s Finest Police (church parking lot)
4:30 AM – treating Parker Adventist Hospital Staff
5:30 AM – hiking the bluffs in Lone Tree
6 AM – watching the sunrise/worship
7 AM – BEDTIME!
Students will need money for food and fun (roughly $30).
MAY 8 – HELP UNITED METHODIST MEN WITH MOTHER’S DAY BREAKFAST

SUCCESSFUL – PARKER TASK FORCE FOOD DONATION DAY!
Three of our youth braved the winter storm last Saturday at the Parker Safeway on April 16 and we collected 14 boxes of food and a little over $130 in cash and gift card donations. Thank you to Emma Sheffield, Sarah Pope and Alan Woodruff for working BOTH time slots and raising awareness and food and money for a great organization – The Parker Task Force!
16 YEAR OLD FINLAND BOY NEEDS HOST FAMILIES
The Rotary Club of Parker is sponsoring, for a school year, a fine 16 year old male from Finland who will be attending Ponderosa High School as a junior. Three host families are needed to care for him during the period from about August 5 – June 30 at about 3.5 months each. It is not necessary for a host family to have children at home, however children present will benefit this youth. If you’re interested please write or call Mike Oldham of our church at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-453-9067 and he will provide you with more details.
Volunteers for 1 church service, once per month, greet for 20 minutes. We have a few openings for the 8 and 9:30 services. Even substitutes would be great. Anyone interested, please contact Jamalyn Ackley: email@example.com (preferred) or 303-570-1745
If you’re attending an event and see our youth, get a picture and send it to me! Let’s recognize them in ALL they do
