Summer is almost halfway over! Can you believe it? The youth group had a fantastic June, full of fun events and lessons. We had lots of fun at our weekly WAC (Wednesday After Church) events, initiated the new 6th graders, went to see the Rays play with the San Jose youth group, and had an amazing week of Camp at CFBC! We’ve already had a full summer’s worth of fun, but we have plenty more to come!
Our big event for July is our mission trip to Nashville! We’ve been planning this since before I even arrived at Northwest, so we’re excited that it’s nearly here! While we’re all sure this will be a fantastic opportunity for our teens, there are a few more things we could use from the congregation. First, please be in prayer for this trip. Our ministry wants everything we do to be initiated by God, and as such, it must be deeply rooted in prayer. We need your help for this to happen. Second, we would love if you would consider donating to a teen’s fundraising cost. Each teen is responsible for raising $400 for transportation and expenses, and many of them could use your help. In addition, we have a fundraiser dinner coming up on Wednesday, July 11th. More details will follow in the weekly order of worship and the Sunday morning announcements, but please plan on eating with us that Wednesday night. This trip is going to be a life-changing event for each of our teenagers, and we would love for every member at northwest to have some type of hand in the process.
But that’s not all we have planned for July! From hangouts to beach devos and everything in between, July is going to be quite the month. Make sure you check the NWYG Facebook page regularly for updates and details.
