ALLIANCE YOUTH  

UPCOMING SCHEDULE

Wed. 25th -- Summer kick-off

When summer hits, youth ministry will change formats. We won't have Wednesday night ministry (unless it's a special event) so Pastor Trenton hopes to do Wednesday mornings at Bridgehouse, if it’s open.

SUNDAY DISCIPLESHIP GROUP will continue to meet from 9 to 10 Sunday mornings throughout the summer for both MS and HS students. Currently we're going through a study based on the book "Respectable Sins" by Jerry Bridges.

WORK PROJECT FUND RAISER - Have a project that you’d like to have done around the house (for a free-will donation)? Add it to the white board in the foyer (or contact Pastor Trenton) and our “Life-bound” Alliance Youth will help you out! 

GRAD SUNDAY - Sunday, May 22, during the 10:30 a.m. service. Graduates will walk across the stage and be honored and prayed over. 

CAR WASH FOR LIFE FUNDRAISER - Saturday, June 4, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lauterbach’s, 2900 1st Ave E .

MEN'S MINISTRY

IT’S SUMMERTIME! - Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. in room 101/102. All  Wednesday night men’s groups will combine for “Summer Style” - each guy is encouraged to bring a verse, topic, or question from their personal Bible study/quiet time to discuss with the group. Eric Pearson's current group has three more sessions to complete Ephesians, so we’ll all start with that. All men are welcome.

 

WOMEN'S MINISTRY

THE STYLE BY COLOR EVENT COMMITTEE NEEDS YOU! - Monday, June 6, 7 p.m. in room 103 (the Couch Room). Women’s Ministry will be hosting Christian Image Consultant, Shari Braendel (StyleByColor.com) Oct. 21-22 for a Style By Color Event. Shari inspires women to dress with personal style in their best colors, coupled with a passion about sharing the love of Christ through the avenue of outer appearance in a comparison-driven world that is out of balance in its thinking of how women see themselves. The committee will include: *Registration/Schedule - 2-3 people; *Door Prizes/Makeover - 2-3 people; *Promotions - 2-3 people; *Refreshments/Food - 2 people; *Decorations & Event Photographer - 2 people; *Day of the Event Helpers - 8 people.
