Pastor Jerry's Birthday Celebration
the Youth on Fire
The youth are
planning a trip to Gatlinburg in March to attend Smoky
Mountain Winterfest and hosted the banquet to help raise
necessary funds for expenses. The ticketed banquet was
well attended and very efficiently catered by the youth and
their leaders and sponsors. The church fellowship hall
was beautifully decorated, the food delicious and the
entertainment was delightful. Congratulations to Ken and
Karen, their youth and adult volunteers for a lovely evening!
The youth set up a background scene for pictures.
Below are some of the pictures taken by them.

Some of the diners at
the banquet. You can see their attention centered on
the drama the youth are performing. The youth standing
(in white shirts) are part of the drama. They were
standing throughout the hall performing.
In addition to other fund raising activities, a
quilt was auctioned off and raised about $700 toward their
expenses. The quilt was produced with help of the
youth under the direction of Candy Scheffler.
An interesting note about the quilt:
Pastor Jerry was looking for something to use to
illustrate a point in his sermon about Elijah's
mantle, saw the quilt top and used it.
Afterwards it became known as 'Elijah's Mantle"
with the words embroidered on the quilt.
Karen and the Youth-on-Fire kids want to express
their appreciation to all those who have been so
faithful to help and so generous in their giving
to make the "Winterfest" trip possible. May
God bless all of you who participated in any
