Thanks so much for your support!

February Youth News

ValentineFebruary 7th is the deadline for deposits for the high school mission trip June 22nd-29th to Lithia, Florida.  We will be working with migrant farm worker families.  This will be about the eighth trip in the past 10 years in which we’ve participated with other youth groups from our Presbytery.  From North Carolina to New Jersey, and from South Dakota to New Orleans, our young folks have served those in their paths well.  Please prayerfully consider making a donation to our youth fund.  It will help us cover the half of the cost that we don’t charge them, so we can send these young people into places where they can serve and share God’s love with those to whom they minister.  And please pray for these young people as they go through life and seek to know Jesus more and to make Him known.  Thanks!

In Christ’s Love,

Rob, Romans 12
