December Youth News

December2Thanks to all who came out to support our Angel Tree fundraiser.  As always, 100% of your donations go toward buying Christmas gifts for Angel Tree kids.  Thanks also for your prayers as we had another amazing Fall Retreat at Camp Loucon.  We were blessed abundantly over that weekend retreat!  Your support and encouragement this year have resulted in children and youth hearing and experiencing the message of God's goodness.  We pray that we will continue to lead them and encourage them to seek God, love God, and give God all they have, and then love their neighbors as themselves.

The Christmas Party for the Youth Group will be on December 13th at the Wilson’s home.  Bring a $10 Dirty Santa gift, and enjoy a meal and good fun!

On December 18th, we will venture out for our annual Christmas Break road trip for middle and high school students.  It will include a meal, movie and ice skating.  See Rob or Denise for more details.
