It’s here! It’s here! After many months of planning, the variety show is THIS SUNDAY, April 19, beginning at 4:30pm.

A message from Marcia and Catherine:

Parents of Youth….WE NEED YOUR HELP!   The Variety Show this Sunday will require lots of volunteers – nothing complicated, just warm bodies to pitch in.   We are requesting that every parent help with at least one task.  Youth and parents can and should sign up for more than one task if possible.

The Youth Committee has spent untold hours working toward this special evening so that it will flow smoothly, entertain, and raise lots of money. We’re down to the last few details now, which is plugging in folks to help in various areas.  Please take a moment – right now – to let us know we can count on your assistance.   You don’t have to think about anything.  Just show up and we’ll tell you exactly what to do.  It’s that easy!   Click Here to sign up!

All youth and families attending the show need to purchase tickets. Click here to buy tickets online, or you can purchase them after church on Sunday.

See you Sunday!

Sunday, March 29

Hello Gang!

We have a very special gathering coming up. After Jerusalem Choir rehearsal at 4:50pm, we will have youth fellowship from 6:00-8:00pm. This week’s fellowship is longer because we have a special visit to make.

If you remember, Joseph and Emily Sciarrone have a good friend of the family who was paralyzed and is recovering here in Atlanta. We’re going to go and decorate his hospital room door. Afterwards we’ll grab some pizza, talk about our experience and head back to church.

Parents: please take note of the extra 30 minutes.

***We still need some meal coverage***

Up Around the Corner:

*We are selling Variety Show and Silent Auction tickets on Sundays. We need youth volunteers!

*MONTREAT: If you are planning on going to the youth conference please e-mail Anna or Michelle ASAP.

March 22 Youth: Meal Needed!

Hi, youth and families!

This week, Jerusalem Choir rehearses at 4:50pm, followed by youth fellowship 6:00-7:30pm. Youth hear a lot about being the “future of the church,” and they’re often asked what they “want to be” when they grow up. In youth fellowship time this week, we will explore what it means to serve God now! What does it mean to be the present of the church, not just the future? Come join the fun and the conversation!

***IMPORTANT: We need a family to volunteer to provide a meal for youth fellowship this week (and most weeks for the rest of the year). Please click here to sign up today! If you have not provided a meal, please consider doing so. If you have already provided one, consider whether you’re willing to help out again!


  • Remember that the variety show and silent auction is coming up on April 19!
  • Please sign up for one more more days to work the stock/variety show sale table. Every youth should work the table. Please click here to sign up.
  • MONTREAT: If you are planning on going to Montreat Youth Conference (July 12-18), please get your $100 deposit to Michelle ASAP. It is going to be an awesome week!

Thanks, everyone, and see you Sunday!
