                What’s Going On With the High School Youth…

Here’s an update on some of the exciting things that the High School youth are involved

         This Sunday we will be taking the lead in the Easter morning Sunrise Service.
The Salt & Light choir and the Point worship band will be leading music; there will be
drama performances by J Crew, and a sermon by junior Scott McPherson. The service
will be in the field by the walking track at 7 am. Pray for good weather!
         On April 5th and 6th we will be traveling to Nashville for our second annual
Urban Mission trip! Last year we had the opportunity to serve with Students Living A
Mission (SLAM), a missions organization based in Nashville. We helped with an inner
city children’s ministry, did clean-up work for a Hispanic church and the Boys & Girls
club, and prepared boxes of clothes for missionaries to deliver to Africa. This year we
will be returning to continue our work with this ministry. It will be a great opportunity
for the youth to serve the Nashville community. SLAM is a wonderful ministry actively
involved in both local and foreign missions.
         On an equally exciting side note: twelve high school students will be traveling
with SLAM this June to Juarez, Mexico. Our work will include leading children’s
services, light community service projects, staying in host homes and helping with local
churches. Please be in prayer for us as we prepare to serve in Mexico.

If you are a high school student interested in going to Nashville, please contact me
before the 31st of March to sign up. I hope to see all of you at the Sunrise Service this
