05-05 - Cookie Baking Sign-ups and John Michael Talbot

posted May 5, 2015, 3:08 PM by Matthew Baum
Good Afternoon Everyone!

It's been a very busy week around here.  First of all, please remember that we will NOT meet this week.  John Michael Talbot will be coming to us to do a parish mission Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday night!  He is an amazing musician and helped create Christian music as we know it now.  He was among the first to get Christian music on the radio.  I hope you will all come out to see him.  He'll begin at 7pm each night in the Church.  Come early to get a seat.

Cookie Baking - It's getting close to the time for cookie baking!  We need to get people signed up to volunteer.  I am asking you to PLEASE use the volunteerspot tool to sign up for a spot.  It's very important that we have a reasonably accurate number of who will be there to set up stations.  You can sign up for as many spots as you want, but we want to try to have around 12 people at a time for all the shifts, and 4 people selling at each mass.  Click here to sign up   If you have trouble with the link, let me know and just email me at and I'll add you.  The spots available are

 Friday May 15th 
 Saturday May 16
 Selling after Masses
Sat 5pm
Sat 7pm
Sunday 7:30
Sunday 9:30
Sunday 11:30

PLEASE SIGN UP ASAP!!! Note:  for anyone who would like a "Members Rate" to Hershey Park and summer events, you must work at least 2 shifts at cookie baking (well, except the Kopps, who put a lot of prep work in)

Hershey Park Trip - I'm currently working on the prices for Hershey.  The date will be Monday June 22nd.  Right now, it looks like Non-Members rate will be $70, and Members rate will be $35.  I know it's a little high, but we need to cover the costs and I'd like to keep the budget money to help offset our costs for the retreat.

Youth Group Activities Week - I'm currently getting Plans together for our activities week.  This will happen each night after VBS the week of June 15-19th.  At present, this is the plan
Monday - Cookout/Outdoor Movie
Tuesday - Coal Tubing
Wednesday - Paintball at WWIII in town
Thursday - Game Night Tournament (Mario Kart, Smash, Rock Band, Board Games, Outdoor games, etc.)
Friday - Bonfire

Retreat - The theme for our summer retreat will be "Christian Leadership: How did Jesus lead"  The date is tentatively set for Monday-Wednesday June 29, 30, July 1st.  I'm still getting pricing and availability on places to have the retreat.  I hope to have more info next week.

God Bless!  Hope to see you at John Michael Talbot, and remember to sign up to help bake cookies!!!
