National Youth Gathering Youth Envelope Fundraiser

We have our Envelope Fundraiser for the National Youth Gathering still going at the south entrance of the church. We ask that you take an envelope off the windows and give either the number on the outside or any amount that you are able to contribute and fill out the yellow donor card inside. Keep the letter inside of the youth who designed that envelope and pray for him or her before, during and after the gathering. And, one more thing, keep your eye out during the gathering in July for a surprise from your youth. We want all the youth to have an equal amount of sponsors, so any little bit helps! Return the blue envelope and yellow donor card with your gift to the Youth Drawer in the Church Office. Thank you.
