Youth group ends year with Christmas party

The youth group poses with their Yankee Swap gifts

On Dec. 16, 49 people attended the annual youth group Yankee Swap, including 8 adults, 8 college crew, 22 teens, and 11 pre-teens.

We met at the church, drove to Wal-Mart in Lisbon to purchase $5 gifts, and returned to wrap them before the swap. The gifts included a fish (Joselyn’s idea), popcorn tin, blankets, candy and more.

Special thanks to the First Haitian Baptist Church of Norwich for lending us their 15-seat van. Stephanie Hamel fulfilled her long-time dream and drove the bus to pick up people in Norwich!

We saw a significant increase in the number of teens helped during this year’s Christmas outreach. We are believing God to bring in a “gathering” of young people into His house in 2012.

Count blessings, not condemned signs

Count blessings, not condemned signs.

We've seen enough "condemned" signs in our neighborhood. It's time to speak another message: "Blessed!"
