CtK Youth Group — April 2019

Busy March for CtK Youth

CtK’s youth were busy in March with fundraising activities to benefit their mission trip to Guatemala in June. We began with a  Dr. Seuss breakfast on March 3rd followed by a St. Patrick’s Day Brunch on March 17th,  It’s been a month full of fun and fellowship and yes, LOTS of cooking and serving our awesome CtK congregation.   The youth THANK YOU for your continued support!

Save the Date — April 7th — for our next fundraiser: a Bake Sale/Auction.  All baked goods will be home made!!

Please continue to pray for our youth. Keep praying for their parents. And keep praising God for such an amazing Pastor Tim!

(Oh, and please donate more beanbag chairs for more lock-ins!)

(Oh, and please consider being a youth chaperone! We need more volunteers!!!)
