No Youth Group Tonight, but…

 

As a reminder, there is no IMPACT Night tonight, or the rest of the summer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities for service, fellowship, and fun!

Our Next work day is Saturday, May 19th, 8 am – 4 pm. We need all hands on deck as we close in on finishing up our youth center renovation. If you cannot come for the whole time, come for as long as you can! Students and parents are invited! Lunch will be served!

7-Up Party, June 2nd 6 pm – 8:30 pm. Upcoming 7th graders and their parents are invited to join us for a party in your honor! We’ll have dinner, games, and a ministry overview for our new members!

Graduation Sunday, June 3rd. We will be taking some time to honor our graduating seniors during Sunday school and will be celebrating with both High School and College Graduates from our congregation during the 11 am service.

Intern Lock-In, June 8th 10:30 pm – 9th 8:00 am. Join us for food, games, and fellowship all night long. A great opportunity to get to know our summer interns and to connect with the ministry!

Pasta Dinner is coming!

 
 

Can you smell it? Can you taste it!? Pasta? Meat? Spaghetti sauce? And dessert! Lots and lots of desserts! Desserts as far as the eye can see! And all of this to help further the Kingdom!

We serve an amazing God, and He is working! This year we are sending out nearly 60 adults and students from OneEightyOne student ministries to Washington DC and Indianapolis. Members of our church will be showing God’s love to those in need in practical ways like helping to clean, do yard work, and paint. They will be praying with strangers and sharing the gospel with them on the street. We are setting out to be used by God to change the lives of others, but we will also return changed!

And we need your help! This Sunday is our annual pasta dinner and dessert auction; one of our biggest fund raisers of the year. We will raise a significant portion of our funds during this event. So what can you do to help?

Well, first off, you can buy a ticket and come eat lunch on Sunday. You can invite others to come enjoy lunch; friends, family, even strangers! Invite that neighbor that you’ve been witnessing to and pay for their ticket! After lunch you can bid on one (or more, we won’t judge!) of the dozens of amazing, homemade desserts that are part of the auction! Eating carbs and dessert for Jesus? Does life get any better?!?

Second, we could use help setting up, preparing, and serving. On Saturday, the 28th, we will be doing the bulk of our set up from 9am-11am. Tables, chairs, and decorations all need to go up along with dessert tables, serving lines, and drink stations. Come and serve, we could use “all hands on deck”!

Then on Sunday, we will be finishing set up at 10:45am so that we are ready to serve the masses at 12:30. We need hands to help finish set up, plating food during the meal, serving drinks, and clean up.

If you have already agreed to help with set up, serving on Sunday, or are making something for the auction, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!!! We couldn’t do it without you! If you haven’t, and you want to, well come on by on Saturday or Sunday morning to lend a hand (hopefully two)!

Finally, and most importantly, pray. Pray that God will move in the hearts of all those attending to be generous with their giving; Not for us, for God and His glory! Then pray that God would lead you how to you can best help and give.

 

Thank you!



Youth Center Renovation and Work Day (Updated)!

This has an update over the 1st post about the work day this Saturday, the 21st.

As you all are probably aware, we started a much needed renovation of the youth center a couple of months ago. Work is progressing but there is still much to be done, and we need your help! We will be having another student work day this Saturday, from 8 am – 4 pm. It would be a huge help if you can make it for the entire work day, but even if you can only make it out for an hour, we could really use your help! Additionally, we are asking that any parents who are available would also come lend a hand!

You don’t need to have any special skills or training, but we could use all hands on deck to help make sure that we meet our completion date of June 1st. Lunch will be provided! So come on out and have some fun tearing things up, down, and then putting things back together! Do remember to wear work cloths/shoes. If you have work gloves, it might help to bring them, though we will have several pairs on hand (no pun intended).

Thanks for your help!
