Teen News – April

Happy April, everyone! Here’s what’s happening this month:

Confirmation

Confirmation classes will be held every Sunday morning during our normal Sunday School hour starting at 10:30. I earnestly encourage all students to participate whether or not they plan to be confirmed this year, or even if they are already confirmed.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!! Bishop Mayer will be coming for Confirmation on April 29! It’ll be a big day and include a reception afterwards with cake and lemonade.

Sunday Funday

On April 22 we will be going to Hawkins Southlake Town Center 14 for Sunday Funday movie edition! The youth and I will be picking an appropriate movie to see as our 4th Sunday approaches. Stay tuned for more information.

Mission Trip

The sign up list will be opened on April 1! In order to have your name added to the roster you MUST turn in your $100 deposit by April 8!

We have set the date for our summer mission trip to Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey in Pecos, New Mexico! June 17-22 we’ll be heading out for a week of intentional spiritual practices and service to the community. We’ll stay at the abbey on the nights of June 18-21. I am reaching out to churches in Lubbock, TX to stay for the first and last nights of the trip in order to split up the 9 hour drive. Mission trip info is on our website; watch for updates!

Service Sunday

Service Sunday is coming up on April 8 after the 10:30 am service. Please join us as we assemble sandwiches and bags of food for the homeless served by Union Gospel Mission! If you are able, please donate Sunbutter and cookies (either store bought or homemade!) We greatly appreciate your donations! Want to help in another way? Be an Early Bird and help us set up before church at 9:30. We need help every second Sunday.

Extracurricular activities

Parents, please provide me a list of any and all extracurricular events that your students are involved in for school. I am a firm believer in being an encourager not only at church, but also in the holistic ways your kids participate in the world. I had the privilege of attending one of the Keller high school theater productions last fall and I would really enjoy seeing more of our students at work.

Volunteer!

Thank you to all the volunteers who have showed up for Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings! We really need more volunteers. If you have yet to experience our special chaos, please sign up for a time:
