College Care Packages

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.

Youth Practice Random Acts of Kindness

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.

Power & Light Starts This Wednesday

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.

Blessing of the Backpacks

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.

Confirmation Sunday

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.

Children/Youth Sunday School Update

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.
