Pumpkin Patch- THE PUMPKINS ARE HERE!!! Due to Super Speedy drivers our pumpkins have arrived early. Therefore, we are going to unload the truck beginning today at 2:30. Rev. Kevin from First Church is going to be picking up as many of his youth as he can gather straight from Simsbury High today and busing them down to the patch for unloading. As you get out of work consider stopping by and helping for a couple hours. Remember the more helpers we have the less work each individual has to do. Plus, by helping at the patch, we are showing the community that we support our youth and our youth programs!
Can’t make it tonight but want to cover a shift? Sign up on SignUpGenius. The link is: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4eadaa2aabff2-pumpkin1
Remember, this is the largest fundraiser of the year and we want to make sure that all of our students are able to go on Mission trips if they choose. Thank you for all your help with this patch and all of our Fundraising.
Sunday School- Start talking with your children about volunteering at the pumpkin patch.
Youth Group- Middle School Youth Group 11:30-1pm Senior High Youth Group 7-8:30
Mission Trip- The Mission Trip for Next Summer is going to be New York City with Center for Student Mission (CSM). We have gone on a trip with CSM in Boston back in 2016. Unfortunately, the CSM center in Boston has closed so we are going to go to NYC this year. The Trip Dates are August 6-10, 2019. Like last time, we are going to be looking for at least three other adults to come on the trip. It would be extra helpful if those adults are willing to drive. We can have as many as 12 people on this trip, so talk with your kids and see if this is something they are interested in. Our Mission Trip potluck this year will be November 11th from 7-8:30.
See you Sunday!
