BATON ROUGE MISSION TRIP PRESENTATION WAS JUST A DELIGHT
Thank you to the congregation for coming to support our youth as they presented their week in Baton Rouge. These trips mean so much to our youth, and your presence is appreciated beyond words. We hope getting a taste of beignets hit the spot and that the toppings made them even better. Thanks goes out to Mark Smith, Dori Murphy, Sandra Rak, Will Naeger, and Kira Williams for helping with the baking of 300 beignets, topping them all with powdered sugar, and getting them out hot on the table. They also helped with clean-up. And, as announced, next year’s trip is ALASKA. We already have 25 signed up. Check it out at the Youth Board in the Celebration Room.
Our Youth Connect, Grow, and Serve for the good of the city!
