We had an amazing week last week at VBS-thank you to the many volunteers who came to help PHkids ministries.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

Our “TBA” Thursday activity is phyouth at Altitude Trampoline Park!  We will meet at the park at 10am and jump for 2 hours.  Pick up will be at 12pm from Altitude.  Bring $15 and extra money for concession.  If you have never been to Altitude you are required to fill out a release form.  You can find that here.  If  you have any questions email jwilliams@phumc.com.

Jr./Sr. High Assembly starts on Saturday @ Hendrix!  Registration opens at 4:15 and lasts until 5:45.  You are responsible for getting to and from Assembly (older youth may drive themselves and leave their cars on campus for the duration).  Pick up is at noon on Wednesday the 29th.

image 7image11 Nat MccWe had such a great Local Mission Week!  Thank you to all the phyouth and friends that came out to help.  We packed food, sorted clothes, learned about world hunger and poverty, and brightened some of our elderly members’ day.  We don’t do this to make ourselves feel better, but I hope you all have a sense of how important all of this is, even if you are just shaking someone’s hand or writing a card.  How you show Christ’s love to others matters!

Next week is an equally exciting week – it’s time for VBS!  This summer’s theme is “God’s Love in Action!”, I think we’ve experienced a little of that last week.  If you want to volunteer for VBS and have not registered, just show up at the church on Sunday at 3:30pm, or on Monday morning at 8:30pm in Wesley Hall.  We can use all hands on deck!

Next Week.
