Allendale’s Youth’s Exciting News!
Messiah’s Minions have been busy, busy, busy. We held a couple of dinners and I have to say the chicken alfredo was wonderful! A big special thank you to Chick Fil A at 4241 4th Street North for donating the chicken for the dinner. We helped out with the Flea Market and picked up a couple of treats for our room. We had a car wash which was a big hit not only with the congregation but also with the Allendale community. All of this is to help send the Minions to Warren Willis Camp in Leesburg.
When I came into to the office to send out our initial deposit check for the youth I was overwhelmed to learn a few of our members gave full scholarships. I cannot express what a wonderful gift that was and how much it meant not only to the youth but to me personally because every dollar takes a weight off my shoulders. This is my first year getting them to camp and we are happy to announce as of last count we are sending 17 kids! Not only are the youth going to camp but 3 adults will be going to volunteer.
Up coming events we are having a spaghetti dinner on April 6th at noon. Come out have a good meal some fellowship time and get served by us. We will be out putting door knockers throughout the neighborhood for the Easter Block Party and watch out for us helping grill up the food.
With Easter approaching us quickly I am happy to say that we held our own Ash Wednesday service in the Chapel, Leia gave us a small sermon and Pastor Ronnie came into give us a blessing. Several adult members also came after work to fellowship with us. Many of us are committed to giving something up for Lent. Some of us gave up soda, others chocolate. Some of us took something on this year and are praying every night or reading the bible daily. During Lent we have been having our lessons on Wednesday night in the Chapel please feel free to join with us if you are in need of a mid week boost!
Finally, Leia got our T-Shirts completed please look for a sign up sheet in the Narthex if you want one. Look for our posters for upcoming events or just ask us what we are doing!
