Fund Raising

As we continue to move into another school year and I am confident that all of the teens are working hard and making “straight A’s”, we as a group are continuing to stay busy with devotionals, get-togethers, and bible studies.

 I am also excited about the “young men of the lighthouse” again conducting the Sunday night worship service on September 24th. We have another great group signed up to lead prayers, songs, read scriptures and several are working diligently on their lessons that they will be sharing with us.

We also are currently as a group of teens and parents working on several projects for us to raise money for our upcoming trip to the “Exposure Youth Rally” in Huntsville AL in December and other activities that we will be participating in next year.

Mr. Jayson Anderson and Ms. Kristy Anderson have graciously volunteered to coordinate the fundraising programs for us. Thank you, Mr. Jayson and Ms. Kristy. (If you would like to help be a part of this with them I know they would accept your help with enthusiasm)!

Mr. Jayson will oversee the type of fundraisers and organization of them with the teens and parent’s involvement. Ms. Kristy will oversee the financial side of it and she is currently working on a “recipe cookbook” for the holidays that she will have information out on very soon.

Saying that, if you have any ideas for fundraising programs that you feel would be a good way to raise funds and might be interested in participating in it please let Mr. Jayson know.

Finally, if you know of anyone that may be interested in helping the teens financially again please let Mr. Jayson know.

Count Your Blessings

“Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! Psalm 103:1-5

As we know this is King David speaking and he is focusing on the great things God was doing and had done for him.

Life is filled full of times that we would like to complain. But, I think our challenge is on those occasions instead of looking at the “dark side” of life and how we feel about things happening to us and around us we should as the song says: “count your blessings”, and thank God for them past, present and future!
