Youth Group

The Shank Farm Tour & Cookout was a smashing success! Thank you, Shanks, for hosting all of us on your gorgeous farm! We enjoyed fellowship, farm animals, and food in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The young people climbed in the barn, rowed on the pond, petted the friendly cats, and had good old-fashioned fun. We're already wondering when we can do it all again....

We wrapped up our weekend with summertime fun at the Snyder's. Thanks, Snyders! Our youth enjoyed the pool, s'mores, and the company of friends. We look forward to this Swim Party every year and Sunday evening definitely did not disappoint!

For I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was sick and you visited me.
I was in prison and you came to me.

.....When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me.

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
