Youth Appreciation Day

yad logo genericWednesday, September 6th, is Youth Appreciation Day at FPC.  We need 20 people to purchase $25 gift cards from local restaurants or stores, or Chamber Checks, etc. to be given to middle & high school youth. Each giver is asked to attend a celebration from 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm and meet the recipient, as well as take part in hearing brief testimonies and just hanging out with our teens. Please sign your name to the gift card and turn it into Dawn in the church office or give it to Rob. Thanks for your support of our youth!

As you read this, we will have returned from our High School Mission Trip to Chicago.  Thank you to all who supported this trip through your prayers and donations.  Your generosity made it possible for some to go who otherwise could not afford the trip, and for that we are very thankful.  Through your support, you had a part in their reflecting Jesus to the good folks of Chicago, and their growing in love and knowledge of our Lord and Savior.  God bless you all and thanks again for your ongoing encouragement and support of our youth here!

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!

Fall Retreat: Our West KY Presbytery Fall Youth Retreat at Camp Loucon is November 10-12.  The cost is $30 each.  We will leave from the Wilson’s home at 6 PM on the 10th and return around 3 PM Sunday the 12th.  We hope to have a good crew attend this always popular retreat!

Angel Tree Fundraiser: On November 29th at 5:15 pm we will have a spaghetti and homemade dessert dinner to raise money for our annual Angel Tree shopping. We normally choose the older children on the Salvation Army Angel Trees, and buy for as many as we can afford based on our donations.  Thanks so much for supporting our mission to bless those less fortunate, always in the name of Jesus Christ!
