As many of you already know, every summer for the past several years (way before I became a part of the surfside youth family) our church sends a team of adults and youth to Salkehatchie Summer Service. This has become a rite of passage of sorts for our students moving from middle school to high school, since the minimum age required is 14 years old.
This year we are sending a total of 26 people from our church to Salkehatchie. But if your not coming along, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be involved!!! I’d like to show you a few ways to get involved, and at the same time get some information to people who are going and are required to participate.
1- Quarters For Salkehatchie: We have a Toolbox filled with prescription bottles just outside the sanctuary here at SUMC. Pick on up, fill it up with quarters, and bring it back. This is our biggest fundraiser for Salkehatchie!
2- BEACH BLAST: This Saturday (That’s right, we just got our permissions figured out yesterday!!) we will be selling hotdogs and FRIED OREOS (so good and so bad for you) at Myrtle Beach’s now annual Christian Music Festival. All youth who are going to Salkehatchie should be there. All of you who aren’t are certainly welcome to help out. Here’s what you need to know:
– We meet at church this Saturday at 12pm to pack up and go to the concert.
– We need confirmation by tomorrow (friday) of whoever is coming in order to provide passes.
– We will take shifts while there, but we will all come back to church when done to clean up. This should be late Saturday Night.
3- We will have a meeting for all who are going and their parents THIS SUNDAY @ 7PM after our usual 5-7pm gathering. If you are going to Salkehatchie, YOU NEED TO BE THERE!
4- Car Wash: We are setting a date for a car wash mis June. Stay tuned for details!
That’s about it for now. We hope your families are doing well this school year end, and that all our youth will finish up well!!
