A Note to Parents!  Thanks again for all your help this past year.  Your support has been wonderful.  Also, a special thank you to our volunteers who don't currently have High School students and continue to play such a big role in this ministry!

Also, look for a parent meeting in August.  
We'll talk about 2018-2019 Youth Nite/Event plans and 
Workcamp 2019 options.  
You also will have a chance to meet our new DCE, Andrew Crist!!!
In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any ideas for next year or feedback on this past year.  Your input is always welcome and valued!    Thanks again!  Katherine
