Announcements 

Faith's Youth Group Needs You!

Our Youth Group is in need of adults who are willing to give a couple of hours a week, a couple of hours a month, or the time it takes to help coordinate an activity or event with our middle and high school aged students.  What was your career path?  Where do you see yourself in our church family?  Broaden your view of how you can be of service in our church.  Everyone is a potential volunteer!

God has a purpose for each and every one of us, regardless of our age.  Whatever the need, we each have our gift to share! So what is your gift?  Are you someone who likes to coordinate events?  Do you like to create?  Do you think of yourself as a kid at heart?  Do you like to help behind the scenes and not be seen?  Do you wish you could be going on some of the activities our youth are involved in? WELL YOU CAN!

What a great thing to do for Lent…volunteering to help our youth!  And maybe you’ll see how much you enjoy working with our youth and want to continue.  To volunteer or obtain more information, contact our Youth Director, Cheryl Lentner, at (734) 671-5211.
