This week in the JYM...

9/22/22 - 9/29/22

A big thank you to everyone who was able to join us on Sunday for our parent's meeting. It was nice to see some families together and get to meet some parents for the first time. A quick recap of what we covered:

  1. We have a lot of one-time jobs we need help with throughout the year. Please take a moment to look over our online form and see where you can volunteer. Our program relies on all type of volunteers to operate :) JYM Parent Help Form
  2. The Joint Youth Ministry just celebrated 20 years of ministry this September and we want to hold a large party to celebrate in January! If you have any connections to a venue space or caterers please let us know. More details about our anniversary party to come!
  3. We are always accepting financial donations, and many families have doubled their contribution by using Benevity company matching. If you are interested and need help navigating that process, please reach out to our incredible financial volunteer Wendy Chung at jymfinance@gmail.com
  4. We would like a few more year-long volunteers for our Sunday & Tuesday Nights. Each Tues Night volunteer is a once a month commitment, Sunday night small group leaders is 2x a month commitment, and Feed The Need volunteers (now on Sundays) is a once a month commitment. If you are interested in joining our team this year, please let us know!
  5. Lastly - we have a new Google calendar that will be updated with events throughout the year. You can view it and add it to your Google calendar HERE or download it to you iCal HERE

Can't wait to see you!

In Christ,

Kat Kraynick-Baker
