Do you know where the Youth have been? Our WHBC Youth were out in our community this summer leading a backyard club in Highland Park, packing backpacks with school supplies donated at VBS and then giving them out to children in Williamsburg Housing Developments at their Community Back to School Cookout. Our youth and adult volunteers and Ken Sharp and Joanne Jenner were not only a HUGE help, but they made such a positive impact in the community! So much so that we have been asked to help plan it again next summer!
The school year started with a joint cookout with the Kidz Choir and then the youth had an amazing race Alien Rescue! We had several parents on board to challenge the youth with tasks to receive numbers to unlock and free our cute Toy Story aliens. Fun was had by all! We also launched our Fall worship theme, A Life of Faith and Adventure with so many new friends joining our group! We’re really excited about what we have planned for the Fall, beginning with glow in the dark awesomeness at our Parent Night Out, our mission trip fundraiser. The response to these nights is always so impressive with many happy kids, parents, and youth! The church really comes alive on these nights showing that we can really have a wonderful impact on our corner of the world!
