Youth Sunday June 10th

What’s happening this Sunday?
 
This Sunday, June 10th, will be “Youth Sunday.” Students played a significant role in planning this week’s service. You will see:
 
– Students leading worship
– Students helping with tech
– Students reading scripture
– Students serving as ushers
– A recognition of graduates
 
Why are students so involved in this week’s service?
 
Our students are playing a front-and-center role this week as we prepare to send them off on several summer trips. The High School students are going on their Challenge and Light Rider trips; the Junior High students are going to the Twin Cities on their BUMP trip.
 
This is the final leg of their fundraising journey to make those trips a reality. In order to help their trips get fully funded, this final fundraising opportunity will include:
 
– A freewill offering during this Sunday’s service
– YOUTHWORKS, in which students sign up to take on jobs for members of the congregation in exchange for donations to summer trips
 
How can I help?
 
Thank you for your contributions to the 2018 student trips up to this point; the pancake breakfast and women’s event blessed our students mightily! We are already $5000 toward our $7000 fundraising goal. Since this is our last fundraising event before the 2018 trips, we are looking to raise $2000 this Sunday. There are two ways you can help us make the push for the final $2000 this Sunday:
 
– Bring money or a check to contribute to Sunday’s freewill offering. That freewill offering will go to the scholarship fund, which benefits scholarship needs in the church (including student trips).
– See a student in the foyer after the service to see what help they are offering through YOUTHWORKS. Consider signing up to have a high school student mow your lawn, clean your gutters, teach your kid guitar, etc.
 
Thank you!
 
Thank you for your love and support for our students, who pour out so much to bless the rest of us in the congregation. Let’s make the most of this opportunity to bless them back.
