October is here and we have a busy month ahead. First, we are painting the Youth and Teen rooms, Saturday October 6th (prep) and Saturday, October 13th (paint). We need volunteers, if anyone wants to help out.....see details below! I am also excited to announce our first ever TRUNK or TREAT, Saturday, October 27th. We will have pumpkin painting, cookie decorating, face painting, pizza, and trick or treating out of spectacularly decorated trunks!! Our theme this month is Fear to Faith. Fear is a powerful human experience that encourages us to look inside and ask important questions. What am I afraid of? Why am I afraid? Should I be afraid? We will challenge ourselves and face our fears using books, art and thoughtful discussion.
Prep: Sat October 6th at 7:00am
Paint: Sat, October 13th at 7:00am
Meet our Amazing Volunteers
Each month we will be featuring a volunteer and highlighting their special gifts. When you see them around church, please be sure to thank them for their service and dedication to the Youth Program.
