The following post was received from Wendy Robinson and lightly (and lovingly) edited:

There will be no Power & Light or Youth Group on Wednesday, November 25, 2015. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

The youth will be selling Christmas Wreaths until November 15. The wreaths will be ready for pick-up on Sunday, November 29. The money raised from the sale of the Christmas wreaths will help offset the costs for special events and trips for the youth during the coming year.

The youth will be preparing Care Packages for college students preparing for final exams again this year. They are asking for the congregation’s help in filling the boxes. These care packages will contain baked cookies and goodies that our youth will be making. A basket will be placed in the narthex from November 1 to November 8, and we would appreciate your donations of snacks (microwave popcorn packages, jerky, chips, fast food coupons, etc.). You can also donate shoe boxes that will be used for mailing the packages. For additional information, please contact Wendy at wendy@abilenefirstumc.org.

The 2015 Christmas Pageant performance by the children and youth of the church is scheduled for Wednesday, December 9, at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary. The participants in this year’s pageant will practice each Sunday morning beginning November 8 during the Sunday School hour (9:20-10:20 am) on the third floor. If you or your child would like to be a part of this year’s pageant, please contact Wendy.

Thank you for supporting our youth!
