As we enter the warmer months of 2022, the Christian Education Committee is excited to share news of the events we have planned.
On Palm Sunday, April 10th, an Easter crafts lesson is planned for our Sunday School time. Please bring the children in your life to join us as we observe this Sunday of preparation for Holy Week.
The following Sunday, April 17th, we will celebrate Easter, as we traditionally have, with a special fellowship time (treats provided by the Christian Ed. Committee) and egg hunt following the 11:00 service. We encourage you all to join in the festivities and youth families are encouraged to bring at least 12 plastic eggs filled with goodies for the Easter egg hunt.
Our Easter fellowship time will also be an opportunity for the congregation to support our Helping Hands Summer Mission Team. Several members of our youth group will be joining teams from First Presbyterian of Clarkesville and First Presbyterian of Cleveland to travel to Madisonville, KY. There we will assist surrounding communities as they continue to clean up from the tornadoes of late 2021. The youth and their parents will be preparing treats for the Easter fellowship time and donations will be accepted as a fundraiser for this mission trip. If you are interested in supporting/assisting with this event please use the following link to sign up: Easter Fellowship
Mark your calendar for May 22nd from 1:00-3:00 as we celebrate with a Back to Summer Bash. There will be games and a bouncy house for the kids to explore as well as hotdogs and other snacks. The Christian Education Committee will be inviting local churches to join as we celebrate the hard work of our students and educators during the 2021-22 school year. This event will also be a fundraiser for the summer mission trip. Donations will be accepted. If you would like to assist with this event use the following link to sign up: B2SB Signup
Finally, we are on the look-out for summer service opportunities in our area. We hope to engage the youth in several day missions during the summer break. If you have ideas and/or would like to help in the planning of these activities please reach out to Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Ashley (email@example.com).
