Announcements Week of September 15


  • HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE – The Hospitality Committee would like to thank everyone who donated mugs for our kitchen. We love our coffee mug kiosk and we will continue tomove towards a “green” kitchen! Thank you also to everyone who has either taken or donated an item from our “donating tree/drying rack.” These items support the Hospitality Committee as well as other Committees who utilize the kitchen and supplies.

  • SENIOR YOUTH GROUP LOCK-IN – We will have our Senior Youth Group Lock-In this Friday, September 20th from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning. We will begin the night with our Chopped competition for dinner, and the night will go from there. Then on Saturday morning, we will have a pancake breakfast provided for us by our own Matthew Jamieson. Please RSVP to Erin Ott /(914) 213-1493.

  • SUM’S YOUTH NEEDS YOU! – Interested in volunteering with the youth group? Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to volunteer. Volunteering can be anything from leading a discussion on Christianity in the world today to out-driving our teens in go-karts, to leading an art project. Whatever your gifts are, we can find a way to incorporate them! The more adults we have that are willing to work with our youth, the more we can do! If you’re interested please call me at (914) 213-1493. Thank you. Erin Ott
