Here's what Fourth Church youth are up to this weekend on Sunday, June 11.
Our first youth liturgist and beadle will be participating in the 9:30 a.m. service! Come and show your support and then sign up
here for your spot in a summer worship service.
The deadline to sign up to be the liturgist on June 25 is next Tuesday.
You can also usher this summer at either 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. worship. Go
here to do that.
The Junior High Mission Trip team to Detroit will meet for lunch this Sunday in Room 4G at 12:30 p.m. to get ourselves all introduced to one another and set for our big adventure.
Next Sunday, June 18, all youth trip participants will be commissioned by the congregation during the 11:00 a.m. worship service. This is a really cool moment where we stand up front as the church prays for us and sends us out on their behalf. If you're going to Cuba, Detroit, or Montreat, please plan to be in worship at 11:00 a.m. on June 18.
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is one of the best things Fourth Church does to welcome children--and youth leaders are one of the best things about it.
From 9:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. each day, leaders greet and lead kids through music, games, and learning. It's a great time and not a bad way to develop some teaching and leadership skills. If you need service hours for school, Pastor Matt signs off on those too.
Email him to sign up.
Help a Fourth Church Family with Childcare
The Nicholson/Dekkers are a Fourth Church family of five with three boys: one two-year old son and recently born twin sons. They are looking for someone in junior high or senior high to come to their home and help after school once or twice a week, on the weekends, or during the summer days or evening when school is not in session depending on the student's availability. At least one parent will always be present; they are looking for a couple extra hands that love taking care of children. If you're interested, send them--Ken Nicholson and Nicole Dekker--an email to discuss further details and payment.
