rummage sale letter by AndrewIsherwood


									Dear YOUTH!!

Happy Summer! I pray that this finds you enjoying a relaxing and fun-filled summer! We are excited here at
Vinje as construction has come to an end and we are preparing to move back into our space! I’m incredibly
excited to show you the new and improved space and to share with you the joy of it being completed!

I have a couple of things I wanted to share with you of events that are fast approaching, in hopes of letting
you in on some great experiences!

Youth Parking Lot Sale: We are hosting a rummage sale June 25, 7am to 6pm here at Vinje in the parking
lot! We are looking for people to not only prepare and work the sale but also for donated items! Now would
be a great time to clean out your closet and get rid of items that you’ve grown out of or no longer need! Be
sure to ask your parents before you bring in the family heirlooms though! Check out the enclosed paper for
more details!

Sonshine Tickets: We will be purchasing Sonshine tickets the1st of July at the $68/ticket group rate. This
rate is good for anyone to use! If you haven’t already bought your ticket, drop off a check for $68/ticket, and
we will hook you up! Vinje will have a tarp set out near the main stage if you need a place to chill, but we
will not be offering supervision, so make sure you have the okay from your folks!

Youth Council: We are looking for a few good men and women to lead up a Youth Council. This group of
people will be “in charge” of planning activities and making some fun decisions for the entire youth! Our
first meeting will be TUESDAY JUNE 16 @ 6pm. Come and learn more and we will go from there!

National Youth Gathering Prayer Service: Come and join us for some food, fun, fellowship and prayer as
we send off our NINE youth who will be traveling to New Orleans for the National Youth Gathering, July 19
@ 3-4pm. Parents, Friends, EVERYONE WELCOME!

Acolytes, Altar Guild, Coffee Hour OH MY! I need some volunteers to step forward and assist with sum-
mer worship. We are in DESPERATE need of people to fill roles as acolytes, altar guild helps, and to bring
and serve cookies and coffee in between the 8:30a & 10a Sunday services!

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call, a text, an email or a smoke signal!
Look forward to seeing you throughout the summer! Be safe and have fun!

                         Gripped in Grace,

                         Laura Anderson
                         Director of Youth & Family Ministries

 Bored with summer? Want a little something to do? Come help us get ready for the Parking Lot Sale! We need

 a little fun! Check out the dates and times needed below and let Laura know by sending an email, a text, or giv-
ing her a call and letting her know what YOU want to do! There will also be a sign up board on the bulletin board
