Hi all,

Due to the all church retreat, which many of you may be in the midst of at this very moment, there will be no Explorers or Youth Group this week. Thanks, and see you all next week!

Youth Happening, Sunday, February 22, 2015 and Labyrinth Walk

Hi all,

This Sunday marks the first in Lent, and with it comes the rolling out of our brand new youth made labyrinth! Morning activities will go as usual, but youth group will be moved to directly after church for this week. We are asking that as the labyrinth is a gift from the youth to the church, the youth should be involved with its first day. We will need youth to pass out informational sheets, help guide people through the process of the labyrinth , and to really just be present to see all their hard work be put into action. Additionally, I will have some quiet, instrumental music put together for the labyrinth walk, but if any musical youth has a soft, meditative type repertoire up their sleeve and would want to take a shift playing, let me know ASAP.

So, to recap, here's a look at Sunday.

9:00am Early Worship
9:30am Explorers
10:45am Late Worship
12-1:30pm Labyrinth Walk for whole congregation. (Meet in the basement. Lunch will be provided for the youth.)

As always, if you have any questions, send them my way.

See you Sunday,

Silent Auction and Scone Bake this Sunday

Hello all!

We have our fifth scone bake coming up this weekend. There are a few signed up already, but we need more!! We will need three more bakers and two more sellers. Bakers need to be at church from 8:30 to 11:00 and sellers are needed from 9:30 to 12:00. 

Also, this is a reminder that youth going on the mission trip MUST donate something to the silent auction. If you need ideas, feel free to shoot me an email. These must be submitted by February 22nd, which is THIS weekend! The form is on the link on the right side of the blog page. If you can't make it to church, you can email me what you would like to donate. 

Also, for those seeking local businesses, there is an attached letter. It may be too late to do reach out to local businesses, but it is still worth a try! In a previous email there was a link sent to sign up for what local businesses you have (or intend to) contacted...or at least I believe it was sent out. No one has filled it out, so here is the link again: 

We do not want to bother businesses twice, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fill this out if you have or intend to contact a local business.

If you have collected gift cards or items for a raffle basket, please bring them to church this weekend as well. We will start to put this all together.

As another reminder, each youth is required to help out with the actual silent auction. We have had a few help collect auction donations at church the past few weekends, and we will need help with bidding as well. There are a few signed up for bidding, however we will need more. Please watch for further emails regarding signing up for help with bidding.
