Youth Life News

Good afternoon, friends! 

We welcome Vicar Luke Beaver this weekend with his installation as our new vicar. Please be sure to introduce yourself and welcome him to Shepherd of the Woods! 

Peterbrooke Chocolate fundraiser begins this Sunday, April 28. We have a table set up in the gathering area. Youth are needed to be at the table taking orders. It is set up to be “self serve” but it’s always nice to be present for a fundraiser. There will be samples available as well as the order forms. Folks can pay on the Care Square, by check payable to SOTW or cash(although change is limited). Please let me know if you can help after the 8:30 service or after the 10:30 service. The sale is this Sunday and next Sunday with pickup on Mother’s Day. 

Our next youth fundraiser is Sunday, May 12th with our Mother’s Day “Pancakes and More” Breakfast! Please mark your calendars. This fundraiser is a bit more involved than our last breakfast as we will have more variety in the menu. Help will be needed to serve after both the 8:30 and 10:30 services. So plan on being here from 8:30 until about 12:30pm. You can earn youth credits towards Adventure Camp and Confirmation Camp costs. Let me know if you can help out!

Vacation Bible School is June 17-21. Volunteers are needed to help with games, crafts and fellowship. Please let Kelly Clark or Cynthia Cannon know if you are able to help out this summer. More info will be available soon!

Adventure Camp Retreat is coming this summer, June 30-July 4. This amazing, fun week takes place in Orlando at the Grand Beach Resort on Lake Bryan and is open to youth currently in the Youth Life group. This event is full of adventure for sure: kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, glow in the dark laser tag, miniature golf, along with study of the Word and a service project at Second Harvest Food Bank. Registration is openYou can register by clicking on the link below and completing the forms. There are also registration forms outside my office in the church hallway. Cost for the trip is $380.
