Youth Group 2023
This week, February 19, the youth group will be discussing the question 'What's the smallest object to have a gravitational pull?' as a springboard to talk about kindness and the Good Samaritan. Youths grades 7-12, from 5:00 -7:00 p.m. If you can, please let Kathy Cawsey know you're coming, so we know numbers for food.

If you're an adult and want to help out, we're looking for people to provide dinners. We're also looking for people to be an extra body - come hang out with us for two hours, no prep required! Contact
Kathy Cawsey if you are interested.
