Fundraisers 2022 and 2023
Fundraisers to Benefit Mission Trips as a Group: This will go towards the group costs of the trips. For example, this will help pay for transportation, food, chaperones, etc. All youth who are going on a trip this year MUST attend and work at least three of these fundraising opportunities. Details for these fundraisers will be released closer to the dates. 

Individual Fundraising Options: Let me know if you want to participate in these. 
• Rent-A-Teen:
When church members need a job done, they can ask youth to do the job for them and donate towards the cost of their trips. Please let Amanda know if you would like to participate in this opportunity. 
• Selling Shares:
Think crowd-funding- essentially, many folks pay into the overall cost of the trip, making it less expensive for families. This is a great way for many people to feel involved in sending a youth on a trip. Please let Amanda know if you would like to participate in this opportunity. 
• Scholarship Funding:
We can offer scholarship funding. Please let Amanda know if you would like to utilize scholarship funding and you will be provided the scholarship form

Youth Choir - is for youth from grade four and up.  They rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. 
Youth Bells – is a handbell choir for 4th through 12th graders.   Rehearsals are on Thursdays at 6:15 p.m.
