I didn’t do any blogging last year! I’m going to change that this year!
Thanks to all who came out to our big Fall Kick-Off Tailgate party. It was fantastic. Many apologies to any who suffered injuries from any of the “Minute to Win It” challenges. Hopefully, you have all recovered by now. It was wonderful to have everyone participating in getting our Fall Youth Ministry started. There was such an energetic and exciting attitude. Special thanks to Mary Linda, Sharon & Natalie and all the dinner planners and cooks.
At our kick-off meeting I presented many plans and hopes for the coming year. More about the “7 year plan” on another blog entry. One of the big plans is our 2011 Youth Summer Mission Trip to Los Angeles. In the 11 short days that have passed since that meeting we have had 18 students sign-up to be part of the mission team. This is awesome! I will be contacting CSM (our mission host) and increasing our team size from 14 to 25! And if those spots fill up….. we’ll hopefully add more! However, it seems likely that we’ll be limiting our team to 20 spots as it may become financially difficult to raise funds to meet that significant a need. Also, it may be difficult to recruit the adults needed to lead a team any bigger than 20 students. I’ll keep you posted! Needless to say, if you haven’t signed up you better do so quickly!
We’ve got great things planned for the year. Make sure you visit our website for updated info on all our events.Blessings,
PS – we’ve moved our Christmas Party and Progressive Dinner to December 12th (from Dec 19). Please update your calendars!
