Youth Ministries
Our mission To develop faithful and active disciples of Jesus Christ through ministries of discipleship, service, fellowship, outreach, and worship that are for, with and by youth. Kim Gold, Director of Youth Ministries

YOUTH GROUP
Ok the planning has begun.
How does a retreat at the cape sound, or is it a weekend in Maine that gets you going? Show up September 9th 2 pm to get the details. High school vs Middle school wins!! But you must attend to find out what & vote where.

Let me know what you are doing! You busy Youth and Kids
I love to see you in action. Got a big game or a concert let me know! I love to be there. Check out the bulletin board next to the education office. Fill in one of the "Look at what I'm doing" cards and I will show up to cheer you on and sing your praises.


THE BIG BOOK PROJECT! September 16th

After the 11am worship service on September 16th instead of packing meals as we have done over the last
few years we are taking on another project. We will sort and pack books. Pastor Kim is renting a truck to fill
with books sorted by age range or reading level and type. She will drive this truck to Lewiston Maine on
Monday September 17th and deliver to the food pantry for them to distribute to children and families in need.
As well as those learning English. This is an amazing mission of hospitality, welcome and love for our brothers
and sisters who are new to New England and those who need assistance that can't afford to go to a book
store anytime they want.
Join in the meaningful work to be done and in a time of fellowship and sharing a meal. We will host a cook
out and work on this project together . One big community sharing a goal and love of God. Have any questions?
Ask Pastor Kim. Watch for posters and info to be posted around the building. This will be as fun as Stop Hunger now, It will be as meaningful for those who can't afford to get books easily and it will make a change in the lives of those recipients for the better in immeasurable ways for years to come. And it is serving locally here in New England. So, Save the date to join in the good work and fun activity.
