A Message from Angela…

The youth did an AMAZING job helping at our VBS this year. I think this was the best batch of VBS helpers yet. They took such excellent care of our rafters. St. Jacob’s has every reason to feel proud of our kids – they are just the best!

After VBS ended, 8 youth were whisked off to the Everett covered bridge in Peninsula. We had a long, fun afternoon playing in the creek. We found some really cool fossils, and we even found another GINORMOUS spider. It is now a yearly tradition to get a picture of Kacie next to a giant spider. We have the most interesting youth group around.

On our way home we stopped for ice cream at New Baltimore Ice Cream. I still can’t believe the kids were able to finish those huge ice cream cones. Everyone was exhausted by the end of the day, and I imagine there were 8 youth that slept VERY soundly that night – for about 12 hours.

As I write this, I am finishing all my preparations for the trip to the ELCA youth gathering in Houston Texas from June 27th to July 1st. The city still needs a lot of help after last summer’s hurricane and tragic floods, so I imagine we’ll be busy. This fall we will give a presentation about our trip and share with the congregation what it meant for us to attend.

How can we top that crazy day? Well, the youth want to visit Waldameer amusement park again this year, so I am looking at a weekday during the end of July. I will be in touch with the parents to determine which day works with the most youth and let you know as soon as a date has been picked. Get ready to do some spinney rides with me and some coasters with Dan.
