HPC Youth Happenings: 4/19/16

Dear Parents, Students and Volunteers,

Thank you to everyone who made the latest Underground Outdoors happen! Thanks to our students who came out and participated, thanks to the youth praise team for leading us in worship, and a special thanks to: Derek Ball, Jen Ball, Scott Bennett, Josh Huff, Jennifer Lusk, Melissa Mahoney, Ben Parker and Bo Wheeler for all your help in getting things set up, running the event, and cleaning up!

Here are 10 things you need to know about our Youth Ministry:

1. Parents' Night Out is April 29th, and we are looking for adults and students to help with that fundraiser! You can sign up to volunteer here!

  • It looks like we still need around 5 more adults to come volunteer for Parents' Night Out.
  • Parents, please consider helping, especially if your son or daughter is going on a Mission Trip this year.
  • Please pray for our teams and our fundraising efforts as we look to the Lord to provide for us in every way!

2. Thank you to those of you who agreed to host for the Dinner Auction and those of you who bid.

  • The bidding has closed and it is officially time to start having those dinners!
  • If you're wondering who's coming to your house for dinner, or which dinner(s) you won, you'll be contacted sometime this week or next with those details.

3. Adults, are you gifted in teaching or leading small groups?

  • Or, maybe you are interested in serving in that way, but have never had a chance and just need some training and an opportunity.
  • Either way, the Youth Ministry can put you to work!
  • We are looking for teachers, leaders and assistants for the 2016-17 school year, for Sunday School and D-Groups.
  • Email me or give me a call to get more info.

4. HHD (Hangout/Homework/Dinner) is tomorrow (Wednesday), April 20th from 5:00 - 6:30 PM! This is our last HHD of the school year so come out and enjoy it!
