If this eternal winter will ever end we are planning 2 youth trips this summer. The junior high group will be going to CYM’s Great Escape again. The youth have been to this 6 day camp event before and have all loved it. There are great teaching times, rocking worship times and of course, mud pits, slip and slides and my favorite, the shaving cream war.
High school students will be attending CIY’s MOVE conference in southern IL. MOVE 2014 is a 5 day conference and we will examine the writings of James, the brother of the resurrected God. Students will discover that faith begins with the resurrection, and see that this changes everything.
Both trips’ costs are over $300 a person and so we are going to have two fundraisers to help students afford these trips: Applebee's pancake breakfast at a later date and our jar coin collection. Jars will be placed in the foyer starting next week and we are asking families to take one jar home for a few weeks and start filling them with loose change. On May 25th jars back and we will see how God provided for our students. Both the jars and Applebee's fundraisers will be combined between both trips and evenly divided to students.
Singers - Join us for our Spring Musical, called “The Only Name… Yours Will Be.” Incorporating songs from artists such as Big Daddy Weave, Love & the Outcome, Matt Maher, Audrey Assad, Vertical Church Band, Kristian Stanfill, and more, this uplifting, powerful praise and worship musical uses Scripture and song to lift the name of Jesus high. Everyone high school age and older is invited to join.
Rehearsals begin on Thursday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. and will continue on Thursday nights until the musical. We will present this musical on Sunday morning, May 18 in two special worship services at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. If you have been watching the choir from the audience, now is your chance to jump in—we want you to join us! Sign up at the table today, call Pastor Barry at church, or email him at pastor- firstname.lastname@example.org.
