JULY 2022

Sweet {Hot} Summer

I blinked and it's July.... We are full speed ahead with Summer and staying busy with all things fun!

Summer Mission Trip was a HUGE success. The teens worked hard serving the Longview/Marshall area, learning and growing in Christ and in fellowship with one another. Thank you for all your prayers over our attendees and chaperones. SO proud of all the teens!

We are keeping busy offering opportunities for the kids to get together this summer. I know how much they love any excuse to spend time together but doing so in His name just makes it even sweeter! Check the events below and mark your calendars. We have a family movie event, a meet n greet with a potential youth director, a service work day, and then we quickly roll in to August. 41 Days till school starts... not that I'm counting. Lol!

Please continue to remain in prayer for the full-time Youth Ministry Director we know that God has earmarked to lead our teens in the future of the ministry. And, pray for the Senior High Youth and Chaperones as they head out this Saturday to the National Youth Gathering. As always, never hesitate to reach out with any prayer requests that we can pray over for you and your loved ones.

Enjoy the photo dump below and I look forward to seeing your teen at our upcoming events!

Many Blessings,


JHYM Text Group

Whether your teen texts on a phone or through a tablet, I'd love to communicate with them throughout the year. I maintain a 'safe' group chat amongst the JHYM group. I encourage the kids to only use it for JHYM discussions, check-ins and to stay up to date on upcoming events. I also use it to send out an occasional verse, lesson tidbit, class reminders and just general 'thinking of you!' messages. If you are comfortable with sharing their cell number or email used for texting, please do so by emailing me at leticia.bachman@zionwalburg.org. Thanks!

Family Movie Event

Sunday, July 24th

Doors open at 3:45pm

Movie starts at 4:00pm

Join us for a showing of FAMILY CAMP ... a faith based family comedy!

When their pastor encourages the congregation to sign-up for a week away at family camp, Grace believes she’s found the perfect cure for her imperfect clan—even if they’d all rather be anywhere but at rustic Camp Katokwah. The first feature film from The Skit Guys, FAMILY CAMP is a laugh-out-loud comedy that will touch the hearts and tickle the funny bones of every family member from eight to eighty.
