Families participating in the Shank Family Farm Tour & Cookout, we'll see you there tomorrow at 4pm. The address was sent to you in an email earlier this week. Make sure you wear clothes and shoes that you don't mind possibly getting dirty while hiking around the farm. All families are asked to bring a beverage and a dish to share. The Shanks are providing hot dogs with all the fixings and the paper/plastic products. A great big thank you to the Shank family for hosting our group!!

This Sunday is the Youth Group Swim Party at the Snyder's. We will meet there at 6pm. Let Jen or Jill know if you need the address. Please bring a snack to share, along with your swimsuit and towel. We'll provide s'more making goodies for a treat to wrap up the evening.

Bowling Fun

Our youth enjoyed an afternoon of bowling at Camelot Lanes this week. Miss Jill, Athena, and Maci even entertained us as they danced along to the music. Like King Julian in Madagascar, they really like to move it, move it! It was a pleasure to watch our young people encourage each other and celebrate successful throws.

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
