Youth Pastors Preparing for Next School Year!

Well one school year is ending but the next one will be here before we know it! So at our recent network meetings youth pastors have been making plans for working together next school year...

Murrysville - youth pastors are planning the next IGNITION school year kick off event.

Latrobe/Derry - youth pastors are working on a monthly youth worship night for youth groups to come together in their community

Fayette County - youth pastors have a series of events that they are taking turns on leading for the network including Connect, Fall Fusion, iPromise, 3V, and more!

Penn Trafford - youth pastors are working on a pre-school outreach with BMX stunt bikes, a fall tailgate party, and next year's post-prom event.

Mon Valley - youth pastors are talking about a school year kick off event at Belle Vernon High School

I am always amazed at the great things God's people can do when we work together! The 2008-2009 school year was one of the best I've ever seen. I can't wait to see what happens next year.

A short story of God's provision for us

It's one of those things that happens from time to time - our gas got shut off yesterday. I was waiting until I got my May paycheck to make a payment, but the bill was past due. So I called today to make a payment, but I didn't have near enough to pay the whole thing (not to mention to the reconnect fee). The woman on the other end of the phone said that, based on our income, we could have our gas turned back on for only $240.00. Amazing, I had just deposited $240.00 in the bank the day before (some gift money we had received). God provided exactly what we needed. Thank You Father God!
