Youth Happenings!

Hello all and Happy September! 
What a busy August! We helped lead children through an adventure in Babylon at this year's VBS, we celebrated back to school with a trip to Carowinds, and we had meaningful discussions about how our church community can talk about mental health. 

In September, we will tackle the theme of STRESS, and examine how four scripture passages can help us talk about how we deal with stress in our own lives. Scripture from Matthew 6, Philippians 4, 2 Corinthians 12, and Isaiah 41 will guide our discussion each week. 

Thank you to everyone who provided meals for the youth in August- if you feel called to provide food for the youth one Wednesday night please contact me at 828-713-2570. 


Crisis Control Ministry

Even though our temperatures are in the 90's, Crisis Control Ministry is getting ready for the cold weather that is just around the corner. For the month of September, they are requesting GRITS AND OATMEAL be given by the local churches. These are inexpensive items so add as many as you can to your shopping cart. I believe you will be "warmed" by your own generosity.
