Youth Potato Bar / Auction is Great Success
Thank you to everyone who joined our youth yesterday for the 2018 Potato Bar and Baked Goods Auction. Your participation helped raise money for the youth summer camp fund.

A total of $3,849.08 was raised through both events. We want to especially thank everyone who donated baked goods for the auction. There were delicious treats available. The highest bid was $2,200 for Susan Shuter's German Chocolate cake. We have some serious cake lovers in our congregation, or perhaps it's the fact we have a congregation who loves and supports our youth?!

A special thanks to the youth and their leaders for making the event a success!  If you have any questions about how to assist in youth projects, contact Nick Smith , youth ministry director.  As a reminder: Jr. High Youth meets on Sunday evenings at 6:30 PM and the Sr. High Youth meet at 6:30 PM on Wednesday evenings at The Factory.
