Are you ready to travel, taste some delightful foreign-influenced food, and enjoy the sights and sounds of other countries? We’ve got the ticket for you… Go “Around the World with Love” on Saturday, Feb. 9, at this year’s Youth Valentine’s Banquet, a fundraiser for youth summer missions trips.
 
Tickets are on sale now on Sundays and Wednesdays. The cost is $20 per person, cash or check. Invite family and friends! If you need a little help with transportation, please let us know and we’ll arrange a ride. We don’t want anyone to be left out… Think of it as your “ground transportation”!
 
Your journey will begin at 6 p.m. with an Italian-inspired menu of rolls, tossed salad, and a choice of entree: Baked Ziti, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Chicken Parmesan or Eggplant Parmesan. No trip to another country is complete without experiences the sweet stuff! At the end of the meal, we’ll share an assortment of international desserts. (You can save those Weight Watchers points for another day.)
 
During the meal, our youth will share their talents and lead you in fun activities with a little competitive spirit thrown in. This is a neat time to get to know other church members a little better and learn which teenagers go with which parents. It’s a wonderful bunch!
 
But the best part is the purpose: We’re supporting our youth to learn what it means to serve others and share God’s love. All the proceeds from the banquet will help cover the costs of the 2019 summer missions trip to Tennessee with Appalachia Service Project. Our youth and chaperones will be helping families in need with construction projects to make their homes warmer, safer and drier.
 
Won’t you join us on Feb. 9? We’re saving a seat for you.
