"Parables: The Stories Jesus Told" (September and October)

Last week we talked about "The Good Samaritan" and the story Jesus told to answer the question, "who is your neighbor?" I hope you all had a chance to reach out to someone outside of "your hood!' :) Text me a story about someone you reached out to and receive 3 points.

Stay tuned for more great stories!

Sign-up for Fall Festival

Hey Guys,

Below is a link to sign-up for Fall Festival.

P.S. You get 316 Points for this event!!!!!

Sign-Up for Volunteers!


In order to stay ministry safe, I am hoping that some of you might be willing to come to youth once every few months. I only need one volunteer per week (unless we are having a special event) and Michael and Chanel have been wonderful in dedicating their time. Thank you! However, in order to give them a break (although I LOVE having them) below is a link for new volunteers. Please pick a date if you are willing!



Newsboys Concert!

Saturday, November 21st is going to be a GREAT night. Tickets to the Newsboys Concert are 30 dollars (I will take care of the processing fees).

Please RSVP and send the money to reserve your seats (If you want to attend) by no later than Fall Festival (October 25th).

Scholarships are available. Please e-mail me if your youth would like to go but the cost is prohibiting them from doing so, I want everyone who wants to be able to go, to definitely feel welcomed to come!
