Softball and Cuatro de Mayo

This weekend we'll be having our mini-missions conference. We won't be having youth sunday school this sunday instead we'll all be meeting in the sanctuary to hear from our missionaries.
We will be having Youth Group at 7pm where we'll play some softball as the weather allows. So please bring a mitt and bat if you have one. We'll play on the soccer field.
May 4th from 6-7pm in the fellowship hall we'll be having our Chattanooga Fundraising Dinner called "Cuatro de Mayo." We'll be be having a Fajita dinner served by the youth mission team. So please come and support your missionaries and give us a chance to serve you.  We'll spend a little time telling you about how the kingdom is advancing in Chattanooga and a little time trying to get your support.

30 hour Famine and Chattanooga Dinner

Those who are doing 30 hour famine: Remember to contact friends, family, and church members to get donations to raise money to feed the hungry. I've had several church members tell me they're just waiting to be approached about supporting fasters. Please contact folks to ask for donations. If you still need a donation sheet come by the church office.
Begin your fast from food (or modified fast for those with health issues) at 12 noon on Friday. Because of lack of volunteers we will not be holding a sleepover on Friday night. Instead, arrive at the church at 8am on Saturday so that we can travel down to Grace EP in Davidsonville to listen to Covenant Seminary Professor Jerram Barrs talk about "Who is my neighbor?" We will return to church at 1 pm. Then we will do activities at the church until 6pm. Parents, come at 6pm with an entree or salad to share. We will break our fast from 6pm to 6:30pm in the Fellowship Hall. (Also, if you'd like you can bring a small donation to Grace EP for letting us attend their conference.)
You can attend all or part of the 30 hour famine activities but please let me know through email so that I can plan accordingly.

Cuatro de Mayo! Mark your calendars for the Chattanooga Fundraising Dinner here at the church on May 4th. We'll be serving Mexican style dishes and raising money for our Mission Trip. Meal to start at 6pm.
