THANKS! A big thank you to Eric and Jess Giesbrecht, Macey Friesen, and Tyson Fehr for youth leading this year! Thanks for working at building relationships with the youth and reminding them of God’s truth and encouraging them to draw closer to God.
WE NEED LEADERS: We are looking to fill 2 female and 1 male youth leader spots for this upcoming fall youth season. Ideally it would be great to have a married couple and another woman come on board. Age is no limit for volunteering with youth. They have lots of energy; don’t feel like you need to keep up with them. If you love God and want to see youth come to know and love God. Gerry would love to talk to you! And if you think that you’re not the right fit for this, but know someone who would be amazing at it, tap them on the shoulder and let Gerry know to contact them. Feel free to call or text him about what it might look like for you to be involved. His cell number is 204-362-7262.
