Youth Fellowship & Missions
Dear Youth and Youth Families,
Please mark your calendars for these upcoming youth activities:
Sunday, August 6, 2017: Mission Project at Welcome House Raleigh
This Sunday we will be doing a mini-VBS with the (primarily refugee) children who live in the neighborhood around Welcome House, Raleigh from 4:00-6:00 pm. We will meet at the church at 3:00 pm and depart, hopefully, by 3:15 pm. There may be as many as 40 children in attendance! Be sure to wear modest clothing (shirts with at least short sleeves (no tanks), and shorts that are knee-length (or capris or pants, no yoga-style pants). Bring money for dinner (we plan to stop on the way home). We will be sharing the story of the Good Samaritan with the children and talking about what it means to be a neighbor. You will be discussing this more in detail and planning the story time during Sunday School this Sunday (talk to Mrs. Melissa if you have questions). If you have additional questions, etc. prior to this Sunday, contact Cara Bolton.
Sunday, August 13, 2017: Back-to-School Pool Party
To kick-off the new school year, come join us at 3:00 pm for fun and fellowship at the pool followed by dinner (hamburgers and hotdogs). A Sign-Up Genius will be sent out by Jennifer Bowen for families to help supply sides/desserts (drinks, chips, brownies, etc.). Please RSVP to Amy no later than Wednesday, August 9, if you plan to attend!
September 15-17, 2017: CBFNC Youth Fall Beach Retreat
Last year’s event was cancelled due to the arrival of Hurricane Matthew …. But we’re going to try again! CBFNC’s Youth Fall Beach Retreat will be at the NC Baptist Assembly at Caswell (Oak Island, NC), and includes worship, Bible Study, and free time to play on the beach. The cost this year is $120 per person ($160 if we want to stay in the cabins instead of the barracks) and includes two nights’ lodging, three meals, refreshments, a T-Shirt, and the conference fee. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Amy by Sunday, August 20th—registration closes August 25th.
