Sticky Faith

Did you know that approximately half of youth group seniors struggle significantly with their faith and with finding a church after graduation? And, that only about 1/7 of college freshmen feel well-prepared by their youth ministries for what they encountered after graduation?

We want to be a congregation that nurtures “a faith that sticks” for our young people. Sticky Faith is a study designed to help nurture teens in their walks with Christ. During the month of March, we will be walking through some of these lessons on Sunday nights at 6:30 in ‘The H.’ All teenagers are invited to participate, even if you have never participated in youth activities before. Please call Michelle (620-8156) if you have any questions.

BBQ Sandwiches for Camp!

Youth and their parents are raising funds for summer camp and on Thursday, March 12, they will be delivering BBQ Sandwich meals throughout Williamsburg. Funds will go to help students go to camp this summer.

Sandwich plates include a BBQ sandwich, baked beans, slaw and a brownie. Cost will be $5 a plate. To place an order, call Michelle at 606-620-8156.

Dessert Auction

It’s a tradition that we all love and it’s coming again this year on February 9 at 5:00 pm in the Christian Life Center. We’ll begin with a light supper of soup and sandwiches and then the fun will begin around 5:30 pm as we auction off homemade desserts. Everyone always has a lot of fun at this event. You will not want to miss it!

Proceeds from this event help send our youth to camp this summer.
