Student and Adult Leadership needed!:

As our participation is growing and we’re providing more programs, the need for both students and adults to step up in leadership is also growing!

Student leaders help in a variety of ways including planning, tasks during meetings and even discussion leadership among younger youth or peers. Student leaders spend ample time training together, teaming up to problem solve and look ahead. It’s a great experience!

Adult leaders are essential for presence and support work at our meetings, but are also utilized in additional small group mentorship, teaching of classes, setting long-term vision, and (of course) chaperoning!!

This is a call for both students or adults who would like to level-up their commitment to this unfolding and amazing ministry we enjoy so much! Please text Harrison at 423.507.7492 if interested in getting involved!

UPCOMING EVENTS
Our regularly scheduled blood drive will be on Monday, Oct 11. The Red Cross is experiencing the lowest blood supply in a very long time. You can be a part of the solution. Please take an hour or so of your time to help save lives. Appointments help us process donors more efficiently, but we will welcome walk-ins and process them as quickly as possible. There is a particularly severe shortage of type O blood. If you cannot donate with us, please donate somewhere soon. Someone, somewhere, needs that unit of blood more than you do. Your body will replace it.
