Hello friends!

I wanted to touch base on a few things on this wintry Monday morning:

  1. I’ve attached a Youth Ministry Advent Calendar  for this season so everyone knows what’s happening when. I’d like to make a few notes:

***Our Sr. High Youth Group times after the Advent worship services will be dedicated to preparing for the Candlelight Service on December 16th. All youth are encouraged to participate as singers, musicians, ushers, etc; there’s something for everyone! Adults are welcome too, so come join the fun!

***I’ll send more info on the respective Christmas Parties as they approach. (Spoiler Alert- we’ll be keeping it fun and simple.)

2. Advent Meal Fundraiser-  There were some scheduling changes, so the first Advent meal on Wednesday is going to be a youth ministry fundraiser. This will be a fundraiser for both jr. and sr. high groups. Since we’re obviously a little behind the gun on this, here’s how we’ll be handling it:

***The youth ministry budget will be taking care of buying supplies, and I’ll just ask that those of you who are able to make a financial contribution to defray the costs would do so.

***Since this encompasses so many families, I won’t be having a work schedule. Rather I’ll just ask that if you and/or your student are available on Wednesday to help serve the meal,  please come and help. If you/your student will be coming to help, please let me know. (5:00pm-6:45pm)

Thank you all! Please let me know if you have any questions
