It’s good for grandparents or grandchildren, and everyone in-between because it can be used at any store, nationwide wherever VISA® is accepted. VISA® Gift Cards are a no-hassle way of getting what you want, when you want or need it. They come in denominations ranging from $25 to $500. An added bonus is that YNB will waive the fees associated with the cards in November and December. When you buy your VISA Gift Cards you can register to win a pair of Hornet basketball tickets which will be given away on December 22. You need not be present to win. There is another advantage to giving VISA® Gift Cards. Say you have some extras cards left over after the get-togethers. Why not use those cards for yourself? Maybe it’s time to treat yourself to something special after all the holiday shopping is completed.

Christ’s Church of Yukon Growing With Purpose
If you’ve driven through Yukon lately you’ve surely noticed the changes made to the church at the corner of Holly and Vandament. The new Christ’s Church of Yukon, or CCY for short, has been busy transforming the former Trinity Church not just on the outside but major work has been completed on the inside as well. They spent $1,500,000 for the building and have spent about $350,000 remodeling the facility to make it meet their ministry needs. Most of the labor was volunteer work done by their church members or friends of the church. They even installed a new gable roof system over the old ﬂat roof to decrease leaks. Pastor John Miller said the facility has about 48,500 square feet and that it has a great layout with many large classrooms, a great sanctuary, a good ofﬁce complex, and a full size gym. They’ve splashed over 250 gallons of bright paint throughout the facility, built a new playground area, landscaped and are looking good! Miller also wanted to pay special attention to their Senior Adults and so he designed a beautiful room for them which is called the Celebrity Room. It has a ﬁreplace and a wide-screen TV
and special lighting, so it is a wonderful space. They also have a part of the church known as “The Warehouse” where teens meet and have their own special services on Sundays and Wednesdays. It’s very popular. Sunshine Station, Kids Castle, Bible Barn and Jubilation Station are just some of the rooms that they have for their preschool John Miller, pastor of Christ’s Church of Yukon, stands in front of his recently remodeled church building on Vandament. and elementary age students.
