The high school youth group team is holding a kick off event to get youth excited about attending our youth group on Sunday nights. On March 12 (this Sunday) we will be having a “Teen Night” for all area high school age youth. There will be a bonfire, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and karaoke. We need your assistance in pulling this event together. We need volunteers to hang out with us to supervise what we hope will be a great turn out of youth. We also need donations of food. We need hotdogs, buns and condiments to go with them. Picnic style sides. Mac-n-cheese, baked beans, etc. We need desserts!! Then of course we need beverages. If you wish to donate your time or food please contact Stephen Langenstein 304-820-9908, or email at email@example.com. We would like to coordinate donations to be sure we have enough of everything we need. Those who are donating food for the Teen Night Sunday, please drop your donation off at The Blue between 4-4:15 PM to allow us time for prep for the event starting at 5 PM. Thanks for all of your help. Please continue to pray for the success and growth of our Youth programs.”
