June will be a full month for many and we are soooo glad to be adding to it for all our teens. We have several events happening this month.

June 3 will be the FREE car wash for any who want to come. It will be from 2-5 pm on the Baxter Street parking area of the church. This is the service portion of the youth outing to the Christian Cross Festival on June 10. Youth will need to be at the church by 1 pm on Saturday, June 3, to get set up and ready for the car wash. We expect to be done with clean-up by 5:30/6 pm.

June 10 will be the Christian Cross Festival outing for teens. We will be leaving the church at 1 pm so youth will need to be here by 12:45 pm at the latest. We will be providing snacks and drinks for the trip as well as money for dinner at the food truck that will be available. We recommend that youth bring a chair and/or blanket to sit on and any additional money they would like for food/other items. Bug spray and sunscreen are also recommended. We will be getting back very late as the festival goes until approximately 10:30 pm with fireworks and it is a 2+ hour drive back. Parents – your youth needs to have a signed permission slip in order to participate in this event. If you would like a call/text when we are getting near to St. Paul on the return trip, please note that on the permission slip with the number you would like contacted.

June 25 will be another service project. We are planning to help one of the church’s widows with a yard project. Carolyn Foster needs some work done in her back yard and the youth have volunteered to assist. The plan is to gather just before 2 pm on Sunday, June 25, and spend a couple hours pulling up bricks from an old patio, cleaning up yard debris, and other minor jobs. Please dress appropriately for yard work and bring a pair of work gloves and a shovel if you have one available (flat and round points will be needed). There will be drinks and snacks provided during the work time. Please verify with Pastor Eric that you are able to assist with the work to make sure we have enough materials for everyone.
