Youth Life News

Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 20th, 10:30-3pm. We are getting together for 10:30 worship followed by lunch, Sandwich Sunday service project, and a ping-pong tournament! You all had so much fun playing ping pong at camp, that we have purchased more paddles, nets and lots of ping pong balls This is a great day to get together and visit with friends from camp and perhaps new friends too! We will be making sandwiches and bag lunches for St Francis Shelter in St Augustine. This is a great way to serve your community and to earn service hours for school. Our goal is to make 200 bag lunches. Join us August 20th! Plan on a fun afternoon!

***If you are planning on attending, please let me know. You can email or sign up on the yellow insert. This will help with meal planning. Thank you! ******
