Youth

(Newsletter)

  Youth Flower Sales have begun. Orders are due April 22. 

Check out the Giving Wall. 

This fundraiser is a board of numbered envelopes, stuffed with Thank You notes. Each youth on the trip was asked to do 10!

Congregation members can take one, whichever number they’d like, and donate that amount to the youth mission fund. “The Giving Wall” is located in the Fellowship Hall, and should be fully up and running by Sunday, check it out and spread the word!
