February Youth News

ValentineFor most people, February 5th is a day to gather, watch the Super Bowl, and enjoy the food that goes along with the event.  Several years ago a youth group decided that those in need of food should become the focus for the day.  Thus the Souper Bowl of Caring was started.  It has now grown into an amazing resource for food banks across our country.  Our congregation is once again giving all donated food to the Christian Food Bank of Hopkins County.  We hope that this year our gift will be more generous than ever before.  Thanks for your support!

On March 1st we'll have our annual Ash Wednesday Youth Fundraiser meal.  Please come and show your support for our youth as we provide lots of homemade soups, sandwiches, and desserts.  Also plan to stay for our Ash Wednesday service as we begin the season of Lent.  If you would like to provide soup, sandwiches, or dessert please contact Rob or Denise.  Thanks!

On March 3rd and 4th our church will host the Presbytery of West Kentucky Winter Retreat for 6th through 12th grade students.  We will share times of worship, prayer, play, rest and service.  Of course, we will also have several meals together too.  If you can help with the preparation of any of these meals, or by providing snacks, please contact Rob or Denise.  Please pray that we will seek God and follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit as we prepare for and participate in this retreat.

January Youth News

JanuaryThanks so much for all the encouragement and support you’ve given our youth over the past year, and specifically the past couple of months.  Six students - Hunter Harris, Dee Allen, Isabella Tapp, Haley Cope, Emily Fischels and Keelie Carter - attended the W. KY Presbytery Youth Fall Retreat with Michael Milam and myself.  It was another great experience to grow closer to God.  Four of our students attended Chrysalis #55 - Kaleb White, Ashlee Goodwin, Makayla Stone and Emilee Higgs.  After our fundraiser in November we were able to buy gifts for four Angel Tree children and sports balls for the Christmas Palooza event for low income children held at Browning Springs.  Thanks "bigly" for the $1002.00 you donated.  Our youth did an amazing job shopping for and blessing those children here in our community.

November Youth News

novemberThanks to everyone who contributed to our first youth fundraiser for the year.  We couldn’t offer to give them half price events, trips and other blessings if it weren’t for your generosity.  This one brought in $733, so thanks again!
