Thank you for joining us for worship today! I hope you experience God’s presence and a loving spirit of community while you are with us. As Minister of Education and Youth, I invite you to consider joining a Bible study. This is a great way to fellowship and connect with friends and our church. Information about these opportunities can be found in the church lobby at the information desk.
If you have logged in to the church’s Facebook page, you may have seen that our youth group recently served dinner at The Volunteers of America men’s shelter. This is one of several local service projects in which our group participates to prepare them for their summer mission trip. Our youth mission trip team will be traveling to Gatlinburg, Tennessee next month to serve needy families in Appalachia. Youth will be will be raising funds to pay for expenses on trip in the coming weeks. You can partner with us in a variety of ways. In your bulletin there is a coupon for the UNO Dough Raiser. All you have to do is eat at UNO between June 13th and June 21st and present that coupon to the server. Up to 20% of your bill will go directly to our trip fund. On June 27th, we are having a car wash at Skyline Chili on Mill Run from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Our fundraising efforts conclude at the church on Sunday morning, June 28th with a bake sale. Each mission trip team member will offer a baked good that you can select for a donation. You will be the prayer partner for that team member while they are on the trip. Of course, any contributions are gladly accepted and you can designate your donation to the Crossing Youth Mission Trip Fund. Please contact me personally at email@example.com if you would like partner with our youth group or discuss where you might connect at Crossing Community Church. I look forward to hearing from you and may God bless you in the coming week.
