The youth will be doing a mission week here in Clyde July 18-22! Each work day will have a theme. The first day is “Love Missions.” On this day the youth will prepare a meal and deliver it to some of our shut-ins. They will spend time visiting and connecting with the shut-ins as they enjoy a meal together! On the second day, “Work Missions,” the youth will spend time working with Love and Care Ministries, cleaning and picking up trash, and spreading God’s love in our community. On the third day, “Church Missions” the youth will focus their time on our beloved church. They will do some cleaning, repairs, and work in the community garden, along with various other tasks. As a reward for all their hard work, the youth will travel to the Fort Worth area to go to a trampoline park, the water gardens, and Splash Kingdom. This is an exciting way for the youth to gain a new sense of respect for the church and their community!
To fundraise for this week we will have a silent auction from June 11th to June 18th. Up for bid will be manual labor performed by our youth and a youth sponsor! Some ideas include mowing lawns, painting fences, walking dogs, gardening… There are many other things the youth are capable of doing, please suggest work, and we will make sure that “item” is up for bid. If you win their time and have a particular chore you need done, we can make those arrangements. The auction will end at noon on Sunday, June 18th. The winners will be announced the following Monday. Also on June 18th, Father’s Day, the youth will be selling breakfast burritos during fellowship time!! So come hungry and support these missionaries as they work toward not only attending church, but being the church!
