August 17- Youth Sunday Practice: NEED EVERYONE TO PARTICIPATE
After the Warren Willis Week, we will be hitting Youth Sunday hard. If you would like to participate, please let Emily know. We like to have as many kids possible participate. There are lots of different roles. We’ve even had youth make art projects to contribute. We are waiting to hear the theme of Warren Willis’s talks to tie into what the High School students heard at Passion so we can create a solid theme. The scriptures, talks, songs, artwork… everything will be coordinated to this theme and is run by youth.
 
August 19- Youth Sunday! ALL HANDS ON DECK!
