Youth Group Parent Meeting: There is a short meeting for all Youth Group parents at 10:45 am Sunday morning (during the second service). If you are not able to attend, Pastor Dan will send along a video and a newsletter to keep you informed of all the most important information about Youth Ministry at our church this school year.
Pray For Me Campaign: “Prayer Guides” are available in the café area for anyone who has said they will be a Prayer Champion for a student this year. Please only take one copy per couple. IF you would still like to be a Prayer Champion – an adult who commits to pray for a student regularly this entire school year – please let Pastor Dan know. If you are a parent of a 6th-12th grade student who still wants to be matched with a Prayer Champion, contact Pastor Dan. Finally, if you thought you had signed up to be a part of this program but have not heard anything, let Pastor Dan know.
