Sunday, May 5: 6:00 – 7:30p.m. It’s a Sundae Sunday!
We’re gonna be “chillin” at this youth meeting cause it’s a Sundae Sunday! Bring your favorite ice cream topping and enjoy a nice, cool treat while you “chill” with your FUM youth friends. We’ll be passing out Pesche’s flower sale cards with your names on the back so you can get some cool credit for handing them out to family and friends and yeah, dude…it will just be plain awesome. We’ll also be talkin’ about some blue t-shirts for the blue knob trip and a super-hero theme for the 4th of July funky float the church is sponsorin’ and who knows – we might even be dreamin’ up new words to the “Bring the Action” top hit song so we can have our very own tunes goin’ on. Guess you better plan to attend this chill-fest cause you might miss somethin’ really cool if you don’t…ya just gotta be there!
Sunday, May 12: Happy Mother’s Day! Be sure to let your mom know that she…is… AWESOME!
Friday - Sunday, May 17-19, 2013: Pesche’s Flower Sale
This is a super duper easy sale to make some cash toward the trip PLUS you get to spend time “smelling the flowers”. Come to the youth meeting on Sunday, May 5 to pick-up your little blue cards with your name on the back so you can hand them out to your family and friends. Then, your family and friends visit Pesche’s Garden Center on Friday or Saturday or Sunday, May 17-19, buy some flowers, give the cashier the blue card and we make money! How easy is that? PLUS, we are going to host a bake sale on Friday and Saturday – so we need you to bake, yet again…but this time we need cookies or muffins or breads (no cupcakes) with a vegetable or fruit theme (blueberry muffins, pumpkin cookies, banana bread, etc.). We will also be selling hot dogs and drinks on Friday and Saturday. We need adult volunteers to help sell on Friday during the day while the kids are in school…Anyone? Anyone? Just email Renee J. We will have a sign-up sheet for shifts at the May 5 meeting for youth and adult volunteers for Friday and Saturday.
Saturday, May 18, 2013: Community Yard Sale in our Church’s Front Lawn!
We will be sponsoring a table with some of our left-over treasures to sell during the Des Plaines Community Yard Sale on Saturday, May 18. The adult mission team is hosting tables on the church’s front lawn (if it rains, we will be inside) to help fund their trip and the youth will host a table to make a few extra bucks, too. We will try to collect a few more treasures to sell, but this opportunity is one we can’t pass up. We will need some youth to be at Pesche’s peddling baked goods and flower sales and some youth to be at the church selling amazing treasures for this fun-filled fundraising weekend. We need an adult volunteer to be on-site for this sale – let me know if your mom and/or dad is available to help. We will have sign-up sheets at the youth meeting on Sunday, May 5.
Sunday, May 19, 2013: 6:00 – 7:30p.m. It’s Just a Fun Youth Meeting, Meeting!
