Hey there everyone, this week is it! This Wednesday is youth group!
Here are some things to remember:
· We will starting promptly at 6:30pm and ending at 8:30 pm. We will work hard to have things wrapped up by 8:30 pm so our leaders and your youth can get home at a decent time, so parents please be on time for pick up at 8:30pm
· We will be discussing the Encounterfest fall retreat, and the fundraiser our youth can participate in to raise their tuition
o Encounterfest is from November 12-14
o Registration form and deposit due by October 24th
o Where it says “Please make the checks payable to YOUR church”, the “YOUR” is
Shorewood Foursquare Church
o If your youth takes a fundraiser packet they are agreeing to commit to selling candles for their tuition
o Fundraising begins September 27th through October 8th and order forms and checks (no cash) need to be in no later than October 13th
· Next Wednesday, September 29th, we will be selling the book Crazy Love for our youth group book study starting October 6th. The book will cost $10. Earlier communication had a price of $9 but tax was not figured into the price, so we will be charging $10. Sorry if this is a problem for anyone.
As I have been praying for this year and youth group, I believe that this year will be a year of healing, growth and challenges as we mature in our relationship with Jesus. Please join me in praying for Jesus’ leading, His protection from the acts and effects of the enemy and that above all things we will fall more in love with Jesus and seek His kingdom first in all things. If we are not focused in this way then it will all be for nothing, and that is not God’s will or our will for this youth group. Thank you for your prayers.
We thank God for all of you!
