C E L E B R A T I O N :
Sunday was quite the celebration!
Abi & Meredith were baptized; Meredith & Sam were ordained and installed as youth Elders; youth teachers & volunteers were recognized; Paige, Abi, Sam, & Meredith were confirmed. And I was surprised with a nice gift from the youth... a book + Kings English Bookstore GC... how'd you know I'd love it!? ;) Thank you so much.
Deposits for the mission & rafting trip were also due Sunday. (If you forgot to turn it in and your youth plans to go, please let me know right away.)
T H I S W E E K :
Today! Tuesday, May 22nd, 5:15 - 7:30pm
We will make & serve dinner to Family Promise guests, eat with them, and play games with the kids. They have ten kids here this week! I met them yesterday and they are super sweet.
Please tell your youth NO phones. Can you please let me know if your youth can be there, so I know how much help I will have?
Also, Today: DADS' NIGHT OUT
Tuesday, May 22nd, 8pm

LUNCH AFTER CHURCH
Sunday, May 27th, 11:30am - 2:30pm
We'll go out to lunch after church and then come back to the loft & hang out. Since it's a holiday weekend, attendance may be low but if there are at least a few kids around that weekend, we will keep it on the calendar. Please let me know if your youth will be there.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP TEAM
Wednesday, May 30th, 6pm - 8pm
Open to all high schoolers. Join our youth leadership team and help plan our summer activities. Also, a main goal will be coming up with a particular area of community service to focus on for the upcoming school year.
6th GRADE INITIATION
Sunday, June 3rd, 7:45am
Drop off your youth at church at 7:45am. The youth will be surprising (shhh! don't tell) the incoming 7th graders at their homes... picking them up, dressing them in silly clothing, going on an early morning scavenger hunt & breakfast, and ending up at church for the 10am service. I need a couple of adults to drive a group of kids. Let me know if you want to help.
Watch for our summer calendar coming out June 1st!
