Galilee Youth -  May/June 2018


YOUTH FAMILY PICNIC ON THE PORTICO - NEW DATE! June 2nd!

Galilee’s Youth Group will hold our end-of-year "Picnic on the Portico" on Saturday June 2nd at 6 PM. All Youth in sixth -12th grade, college-age and their families are invited to this event!

There will be burgers, hotdogs and drinks provided by Youth Ministry. Families should bring a side dish or dessert to share.

We need a couple people to man the grills. Please let Jean know if you can take on that task.


30 Hour Famine - Small But Mighty!

FamineOnly a few participated in the 30 Hour famine but by joining with the Galilee Men's Breakfast Bible study, we were able to accomplish much. Noelle, Ms. Emily, Mr. Chris and Ms. Jean packed up over 100 'hygiene' kits donated to OGT by a local Eagle Scout for shipment to Liberia

Some of the men prepared bicycles (a LOT of bicycles) for shipping also. Then we all joined in to repackage almost 110 boxes of books to meet the requirements of Liberia's stringent import policies. Everyone was tired but satisfied that we had done a good job when we finished around noonShelter in a 3rd world

Then the youth decided it was time to go ride go karts as it was such a beautiful afternoon. After go karting, the youth participating took on a task to build a shelter that would serve to protect 2-5 people out of materials available. The activity took a bit longer than expected but the results were good! We did confirm during the later feast that at least three people could easily laydown in the shelter - especially if they were children. We took a bit of time after building to do a short study on famine around the world.

The day was finished up with Worship and then our Feast. Parent's brought our favorite food and all of us relaxed and enjoyed eating.

Thanks to all the youth participating either directly by joining us or by giving up food or phones to raise money for World Vision Famine relief.

Thanks also to the Galilee Men's Bible Breakfast group who let us join in on your work day! And thanks to all the parents and other adults who helped with the 30 Hour famine!

Last - but not least - it is NOT too late to give donations either on-line or to one of the youth collecting money. To contribute on-line go to the Galilee Youth Team Page at https://youth.worldvision.org/team/GalileeYouthStarving or directly to one of the youth's participating including Noelle Somers, Tyler Stone, Will Ward, Alex Lichtner or Zach Hightower.

YOUTH: All fund raising packets should be turned in by May 27th to Ms. Jean or put in the Youth Mailbox outside the office!
