Reminders for Youth

1. There are still 2 spaces left for youth who wish to get credit toward Mission Trip 2012 fundraising efforts on February 19. Email me if you are able to help folks fill out their congregational surveys after the 10:45 worship service. Bring a laptop and help people take the survey online. If you do not have a laptop that is OK, you can work with people filling out paper copies. Go to to see video of last Sunday's team in action. Email me if you are interested.

2. If you are in grades 9 and up, and confirmed, you are an adult member of the church. Your opinion matters greatly in the churches search for a new pastor. Speak out by taking the congregational survey yourself at If you are helping with folks filling out the survey, you will want to have done this by the 19th to be able to provide good assistance.

3. Finally, for youth going on the mission trip, there will be a mandatory parent/youth meeting at 6pm on the 26th. Come for youth group at 5pm and ask your parents to join us for the meeting from 6-7pm.
