Youth Update:  April, 2017

24 Hour Fast this weekend

We begin fasting after lunch on Friday and meet at Grace that afternoon or evening to participate in our lock-in to raise fund for ELCA World Hunger.  The consent form and sponsor sheet are available on the bulletin board if your youth plans to participate.  We will be done by 1:00 on Saturday.  If you are on the sign up sheet more information will follow via email!

2018 summer youth gathering

If your student is currently in grades 8-12 they are eligible to attend the Synod Journey and ELCA Youth Gathering  next summer.  If you have a German student who is going on the German Trip that summer, we have arranged a German Journey to the Youth Gathering, led by Pastor Dean!  (On your German Trip application, please request a deviation to Houston, Texas on June 27th).  Parents and youth are invited to join us for an informational meeting tomorrow, April 19 at 7:30 pm (the last part of confirmation class) for more information!

Last fundraiser for this year is May 7

Sign up on the youth bulletin board to bring bars or cookies to the Spring Ring reception on Sunday, May 7th at 6:30.  We will serve coffee and dessert following the concert and collect donations for our canoe trips this summer.

Highway Cleanup May 10

At 6:30 on May 10th we will be doing highway cleanup.  If you need more service hours, remember this event qualifies, as well as the service projects of the 24 Hour Fast!  Wear appropriate gear for highway cleanup that evening.  If we are rained out, May 17th is our backup date.
