The Youth Group will be accepting donations for the College Care packages beginning next Sunday, October 27 through Sunday, November 17, 2019. Things like ramen noodles, popcorn, pretzels, candy, gum, cookies, cocoa, etc. are welcome. We have 17 college kids to send care packages to this year as they prepare for final exams. If you would like to send them a note of encouragement, we will have a list of students and note cards available in the Narthex in November.
This month the youth have been talking about kindness and so last Wednesday, September 18, the youth provided ice cream to people dining at McDonalds and Burger King.
A final, short reminder that Youth Group begins again tomorrow, Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 6 p.m.
After school Power & Light will begin this Wednesday, September 4, 2019, at 3:30 p.m. Wendy Robinson will meet the kids at the bus stop on 5th and Cedar each day.
Adult volunteers are sought to help with Power & Light and others to teach children’s Sunday School (1 month at a time). Please contact Wendy Robinson if you’re willing to help.
This Sunday we’ll be presenting Bibles to our three second-graders: Cora Vinduska, Claire Cormack, and Haven Mather.
Next Sunday Morning, August 18, 2019, we’ll have the blessing the backpacks. All children are invited to bring their backpacks up to the chancel with them during the children’s time. The backpacks, and more importantly, the children they belong to, will be blessed for the new year of school. School personnel are also encouraged to bring their work bags to worship and participate, but even if you don’t, we’ll be praying for you.

Last Sunday’s worship services were led by the 2019 Confirmation Class. They did a great job and we’re glad to have each and every one of them as professing members. Pictured above, from left to right: Carson Woodworth, Jensen Woodworth, Jack Hunter, Troy Boyd, Blair Adams, Joy Clemence, and Ava Crist.
This weekend is the One Event for the Youth of the Great Plains Conference. Wendy will be taking a group over, and for that reason, there will be no Sunday School for children or youth this coming Sunday (January 6, 2018). Classes will resume the Sunday following with the children on the third floor and the youth in the youth room.
The children and youth of First put on a great Christmas pageant yesterday. Jenny and I want to extend a special thanks to Wendy Robinson for putting it all together.
