October Youth News

octoberYou may have noticed that we haven’t scheduled a youth group fundraiser yet this Fall.  We have decided to ask those who would like to contribute to the youth programs here at FPC to please do so in their offerings, as the Lord leads them.  We will have our annual Angel Tree fundraiser for the shopping trip in November and our end-of-year Senior Celebration/Grill Masters/Sweet Treats competition fundraiser. Thanks for your continued support of the youth who participate in our church youth groups.

On November 9th-11th we'll have our Fall Retreat at Camp Loucon.  This retreat is for the middle and high school youth of the Presbytery of Western Kentucky.  Flyers will come out soon and details will be included.  The cost for the weekend has increased somewhat due to increases in Loucon’s activity and meal prices.  We hope to have another memorable retreat.  Thanks for your prayers!

August Youth News

augustWe will begin our Wednesday night youth groups on August 15th.  The Middle and High school group will meet from 6 to7:30, and on our first night back we will celebrate God’s gift of water by getting wet and having some fun.  Hope to have all our youth attend and experience the best God can give us in this family of encouragement and love.  Also, if you shop at Kroger and are interested in helping fund our yourth programs, please sign up for the Kroger Community Rewards Program (click here).  Thanks so much for all your support.  We appreciate your prayers and look forward to another great year!

June Youth News

june"Thanks" is not enough for those who contributed food and money for our last fundraiser of the school year.  Your support and encouragement for our youth groups is much appreciated!  For those who supplied mouth watering BBQ and delicious desserts, you all out did yourselves!  It was so good!  Thanks, too, to those who stayed to celebrate with our six seniors: Abigail Brown, Madison Cummings, Allie Downey, Emily Fischels, Emilie Higgs, and Cody Jervis.  I'm sure they appreciated all the love and encouragement.

Please pray for those who will be going to the Spirit Song Music Festival June 21-23: Dee Allen, Taya Clary, Haley Cope, Allie Downey, Blake Downey, Hunter Harris, Isabella Tapp, Kaleb White, Denise, and me. Thanks so much for all you do to support our youth!

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.
