I am very excited for this summer and all the opportunities for our youth to learn more about and serve our God. Summer trips are one of the best ways for our youth to grown in their faith as well as to build the lifelong relationships with their peers. One of my favorite parts of ministry is the stories that our kids share with each other and those new to the ministry. Friendships are started and built on trips like these.

Jr. and Sr. High youth service and fellowship day August 17th starting at noon, we will meet at the church and head to Mid-cities pregnancy center to learn about their services and do a service project. When we are finished we will get a quick dinner and then a rangers game at 6pm. No cost for this event, but dinner is not included. Please contact David by August 3rd so I can purchase the tickets.
