The beginning of June began with two fundraisers: our annual community yard sale and a car wash held at the Mont Clare fire house. The youth had a lot of fun working on these two fundraisers, and are very excited about raising money for our trip to National Youth Conference next summer.
For the Jr. High youth, this summer started out with a trip to Elizabethtown College for the National Jr. High Conference. Two advisors and three youth enjoyed the weekend-long conference centered around the theme “Love Speaks.”
Both the Jr. High and the Sr. High are excited to go on their work camp trips at the end of July. Marissa Yeager, Dave Coffman, Andy Simon, Abby Mancini, Andy Hallman, and Kim Hallman will be going to Washington D.C. on July 22nd. Sarah Coffman, Emma Smith, Magnus Skidmore, Abby Simon, Kierstin Bainbridge, Mike Lantzy, and Lori Lantzy will be going to Greenville, Ohio on July 29th. Both groups are very excited for their summer trips!
“My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you've been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You're deeply rooted in him. You're well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you've been taught. School's out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.”
