Pastor Jerry's Birthday
Wednesday night staff and youth sang "Happy
Birthday" to Pastor Jerry and shared his decorated
cake. For their craft they made birthday
cards for him with the help of Sister Lorinda,
Sister Lisa Barefoot and Sister Alma Ridings.
Cake in the picture was Pastor's special personal
cake--Italian Cream Cake.
Pastor's birthday cards made by youth
We had to dismiss youth service around Sister
Lorinda's birthday due to weather and road
conditions, and the Wednesday night youth were not able to share in
her celebration. We wish her a Happy
Birthday and a blessed year as she teaches the
Juniors about Jesus and watches over their
appreciate Brother Kenny and Sister Karen who
teach the older youth, and they meet with them for
crafts and snacks while Juniors are having a
lesson in the sanctuary.
Crafts by Kids
We appreciate all the "helpers" who are so
faithful to come out and help in so many ways on
Youth night. There are snacks to prepare,
crafts to help the youth prepare, games and
activities to supervise, and unexpected duties.

Worship and Lessons
Teacher Lorinda "sent the disciples" out to
bring others into the fold based on Jesus'
admonition to "go into all the world." One
gathered one, then they two gathered another until
all had been brought in. With everyone
brought into the fold, they sang "I'm In the
Fall Festival Fun
The evening began with the kids sitting in a
circle and Karen in the middle telling a Bible
story and encouraging the kids to allow Jesus to
come into their hearts and lives.
Then they played the game of stepping on each
other's balloons that were tied to their ankles.
Ken and the "big kids" demonstrated how it was
done. Next came the various games set up
around the fellowship hall where the kids could
earn tokens they could later spend on trinkets,
food, etc. Each one was given a bag in which
to keep their tokens until after game time.
Finally, it was time to "spend" their tokens for
items in the bins set up by the food table and
choose what they wanted to eat.
Many thanks to the adults who came out to help
make the Fall Festival Fun time a great success.
Hats off to the hard workers who helped set
everything up, served during the fun time and then
hung around for the quick cleanup so the day crew
wouldn't have so much to do. We appreciate
everyone who had a part in this activity.
God bless you all!
A special thanks to Karen and Ken who tirelessly
work to see that the youth program runs smoothly!
