Penny's Monday Moments 6-18-2018:
Good morning. I hope you had a great "Father's Day" weekend. We had another fantastic "Faithful Friday" as we cooked and served a meal for the Salvation Army Center of Hope! A special thanks to the youth that worked hard to make it happen and then to Pastor Tom and Steve & Karen Tucker!! We even made the News Tribune! But missing from the pictures were Brooke and Oscar. I guess they were busy doing something else behind the scenes and missed getting in there!
This week at Wesley:
Wednesday - Wacky Wednesday - 6:00-8:00 - We will grab a bite to eat and then we will go to the mall for a "Mall Scavenger Hunt". The youth have been asking to do this for awhile and so we are going to give it a try. Please encourage your youth to come!! A special thanks to Amy Branson for hanging out with us!
Saturday - June 23 - Picnic & Games at Coyote Hill Christian Children's Home - We will LEAVE Wesley at 11:00 and go to Harrisburg for a picnic and a fun afternoon of games with the children. This will be an awesome opportunity to hang out with these kids and just show them God's love through fun and laughter!! This is a collaborative effort between the Missions Team, Fellowship Team and our Youth Group! Come and join us!! It looks like we will finish around 3:00 so we should be back to church around 4:00-4:15. Let me know if your youth wants to go!
The youth will be getting the summer schedule for mission opportunities and other things in the mail this week! Encourage them to post it on the frig where they will see it and be reminded of all the missions they can help with! I NEED ADULTS to help with all of these as well. I hope you will take the opportunity and participate in at least one this summer!
Here is the schedule:
Each Sunday we gather together for Sunday School at 9:45 a.m. PLEASE encourage your youth to come!
