7 Up Party on June 2nd @ 6pm

Hello Upcoming 7th Graders and Parents!

 

It’s that time, ready or not! We’re welcoming our upcoming 7th graders as they officially join the OneEightOne Youth Ministry on Sunday, June 3rd. In order to continue to aid in a smooth transition, we are having a party in your honor! On Saturday, June 2nd from 6pm-8:30pm in the Cross of Hope Pavilion, we will be rolling out the welcome wagon just for the upcoming 7th graders and their parents! We’ll have dinner, games and activities, and we’ll be giving an overview of our student ministry.

Please be sure to RSVP at the youth website HERE by Friday, June 2nd! We are so excited to have you join the Jr. High youth group!

Also on Saturday, we’ll cover the calendar of the planned activities that we’ll be having this summer for your newly minted Jr. High student to be able to participate!
 
See you there!


Meet our Summer Interns!

Every summer, PHBC hires two inters to work with both our children and youth ministries. They gain valuable ministry experience while we gain additional hands and leaders during our very busy summer ministry season.
 
 
I would like to introduce our 2018 summer interns, they are Rebekah Erway and Kayla O’Neill! As you see them around, be sure to say ‘Hi’ and make them feel welcome!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Greetings! My name is Rebekah Erway. I’m a recent graduate from Cedarville University with a degree in Christian Education. I am currently not entirely sure where God wants me after school, but I want to work in ministry, especially with kids and teens. That’s why this summer is going to be great: I’ll get to love on kids and teens at Parma Heights and see how in-church ministry works. I’m a dark chocolate-lover and tea-drinker (though I will accept occasional cappuccinos) who likes Oxford commas, words that are fun to say, and hanging out with friends, relatives, and occasional large groups of strangers. I’m super excited to be here this summer and to get to see what God does at this church and through my time here!
 
 
 

Hey there! My name is Kayla O’Neill and I am a 21 year old Ministry Student at Moody Bible Institute. I am now a Junior as I study for my Bachelor of Arts in Ministry Leadership with a focus on Family and Children Ministries. The Lord has captured my heart and I wish to serve Him and help others find and follow Jesus Christ as I continue in my journey. Right now, that means that I am your summer intern and I am thrilled to be here and serve. Also, just a little bit about me, I love hiking/being outside, using my hammock, taking pictures, baking, puns, and I am learning to play the piano! I am so excited to work with the children and youth of PHBC and I am getting more excited by the minute as I plan and prepare for the summer events!

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!
