On March 22 our youth enjoyed lunch together before preparing for Youth Sunday.  Our youth are going to do a great job of leading the congregation in worship on April 19!

 

On March 28, several of our youth attended the Hornets Faith & Family Day.  We enjoyed a concert featuring Love & the Outcome and Chris August, we ate dinner at Fuel Pizza uptown, and then enjoyed watching the Hornets take on the Atlanta Hawks.  Thanks to Kellie and Richard Chapman and Kim Wall for attending this event with the Youth Group!

Lots of fun at the Hornets Faith & Family Day!

During Sunday School on March 29, our youth stuffed Easter Eggs.  After the 10:30 service, they hid those eggs in the front lawn and playground for the children to find.  Our children had a great time finding lots of eggs!  Thanks to everyone who donated candy.

In addition to all of these great activities, our youth have continued to serve in worship as acolytes, crucifers, lectors, prayer assistants, communion assistants, and ushers, and they have continued to explore their faith in Confirmation Class and High School Sunday School.
