- Boy Scouts – Thursday, 7:00 PM
The plaques have been updated. John stated that we have 3 boys that are preparing for their Eagle Scout badges. John explained the steps in the journey of an Eagle Scout. He would like to have the church honor these young men by celebrating with them sometime this spring. John and Sharon will get together to organize this event.
- Cub Scouts – Tuesday, 6:30 PM.
Scouts are signing up kids again, they renew their charters in January each year. Girls will now be able to join Cubs. They will have their own dens with female leaders. There also is a program for kindergarten age boys. They are called Lions and there is a group here at our church.
Update on the Youth Group
All set for a road trip.
Into Niagara Falls!
Ready to help others.
Our Youth Group meets every other Sunday at 5:30 PM. All junior or senior high youth are welcome. This group participates in group discussions, spiritual growth, mission trips, community activities, concerts, etc.
The Walk for Water supporting World Vision was a huge success. There were 20 people present, 6 adults, 14 youth. We raised $675.00 for the cause. We would like to thank Jeff Hedges for the use of his parking lot and Trinity Presbyterian Church for their open doors for our restroom breaks.
The Youth would like to do a 30 hour Famine in July. They would also like to go to Linn Run and Buttermilk Falls for summer excursions.
Our youth group is in need of a youth leader. Over the past few years we have had a great group of 5 leaders, and for awhile this worked. We now realize we need one leader (or a husband and wife) to lead our group. We need someone to set the vision and mission of the youth group. We need someone to lead lessons, and we need someone to plan outings, and to plan mission trips. You will not be on your own, because the 5 current leaders will still be there. We will be the extra eyes and ears at meetings. We will bring the food for each meeting, and we will chaperone and drive the kids to events, like SPARK, Creationfest, and mission trips. If you feel God calling you to be a part of something in the church, this might be your answer. If you are not called to this, I ask that you pray for our youth group as we begin the search. We have a great group of youth and young adults who have servant hearts and are itching to do God’s work and learn God’s word. If you are interested, talk to Pastor Sharon.
