Youth Stuff!

(From the September/October 2017 Newsletter)

    A big THANK YOU to Jack and Dianne Bowen for hosting the annual back to school splash and for the always yummy brownies!  We had a wonderful time.  Y'all are the best!  Also thanks to Lindy for being a driver and for picking up the pizza.   We couldn't have covered everything without you.

     School is starting soon and we have begun praying for our teachers who have already started school.  And that is what the September event is all about.  The world-wide prayer meeting, See You At The Pole, is Wednesday, Sept 27.  This is a youth prayer meeting for your school and friends.  Generally you meet at your school's flag pole about 30 mins before the bell.  If you can't get there that early go join in when you do get to school.  Please check around to see if your school has anything extra planned with it or a specific time.  Start the year off right, "let us fix our eyes on Jesus" and PRAY!

     In October we plan to stuff bags with candy and kid tracts on Wed, Oct 25 in preparation for the Halloween Outreach (on Tue, Oct 31).  We will do the bags at the regular Wed night meeting and give them out at Pastor Gary's on Halloween from 5:30 to 8:15.  Dinner will be provided while we pass out the bags to the children.  Please be praying for the children God will send and their families too.

     November is the Shoe Box shopping trip for Operation Christmas Child.  We will leave the church at 6:15 on Wed, Nov 8 and return 7:30ish.  Everyone will need $10 for this event.  If you get there late go the fellowship hall for prayer meeting because we will already be gone!  Also in Nov. the church will host the Thanksgiving meal on Wednesday, Nov 15 and we will all meet in the fellowship hall together that night.

     You are welcome to bring friends to all these events.  PLEASE BRING YOUR FRIENDS!  Don't forget the regular meetings: Sunday school at 9:45 and Youth Stuff on Wed nights at 6:30.  See you there!
