Youth News – October 10, 2014

Posted on 10/10/2014 by Blue Ridge

Tomorrow is the Purcellville Tag Sale. Come on out and help us at the Romania Reborn booth from 8am until 4pm. Should be a great time!

Also, the week after next we’ll start a new study series. Thank for all the great ideas this past Wednesday. Two of the most popular were How to share your faith and a study of Revelations. But there were a number of other great ideas too. Some even thought a study of One Direction would be a good idea. Maybe that’s what we’ll do? Boy Band History and Appreciation. :) haha!

Anyway, in all seriousness, please let me know what other ideas you might have.

Tag Sale and Romania Reborn
Can you help raise support for Romania Reborn? They are looking for donations of stuff and time. They need help on the evenings of Oct 9 and 10 and then all day at the tag sale on Oct 11. Check out the details and sign up here!

Corn Maze!
Saturday November 1 we’ll be doing a corn maze in the evening! Should be a ton of fun. We’ll leave and return to the church and the cost per person will be $10. Still determining exact times but I’ll let you know as soon as I can!

Extra Bible Study
As I said at youth group, I want to start a study on Sunday mornings before church for anyone that is interested. It will likely be a really small group. If you are interested please let me know. We’ll have a first meeting and figure out together what we’ll study.

Youth Group Leadership Team
Would you like to help organize fun stuff and service projects with the youth group? I need an elite team of people with great ideas and the willingness to help make them happen. Let me know if you’d like to help!

LOOKING AHEAD
Oct 9-10 – Romania Reborn Tag Sale setup
Oct 11 – Romania Reborn Tag Sale
Nov 1 – Corn Maze
