Young Adult Summit 

All are invited to the next Young Adult Summit meeting at 5:30pm on Wednesday, December 19th at church. We will begin with supper at 5:30pm, followed by an hour of discussion and fellowship. Our focus this month will be planning a Family Fun Day to be held in January. In addition, we will hear from members who have recently attended a chil-dren’s ministry training. Our goal as a group is to move our church forward in reaching the next generation, and for them to better connect with God and God’s people. Nursery care will be provided for those who need it. Please RSVP by Monday, December 17th to Beth Bourgeois at or 218-839-0160
