Youth News – April 2016


It has been a busy month of ministry.  Some exciting events included the Abigail’s Angels fundraiser Concert, with 250 in attendance. Over $5,500, was collected and donated to the RDH12 Fund for Sight. A Teen Depression, Self-Injury and Suicide night at Starkdale, featuring Lisa Ward of the Coleman Counseling Services was well-attended. It has also been a blessing to see many of our youth outside of the normal youth ministry times at the FCA clubs and other sporting events. I also spoke to 25 Cub Scouts from Pack 415, and their parents, about Christianity and the Presbyterian Church.
