Senior Youth Fundraiser

“We got flamingoed!”

“I want to be flamingoed!”

“How do you flamingo someone else?”

“My flamingo flock looked so pretty!”

These are about to become some of the “Words from the Pews” at ILC. Our ILC Senior Youth will be kicking off their year-long fundraising events for the 2016 LCMS National Youth Gathering with a new twist! Flocks of Pink Flamingos may soon be in your future. You can have a friend or family member “Flamingoed.” Flamingo flocks come in various sizes (small, medium and large). If you would like more information on ordering a “Flamingoing,” please contact Mary Boucher at 379-2965 or ILCSeniorYouth@gmail.com.

Rise and shine and give God the glory! The start of spring always makes me think of this saying. The flowers coming out, more hours of sunshine, and the sounds of birds in the morning. Spring is a time for new life. Jesus died to give us new life. He created us, and saved us, and loves us- and that is something to be excited about. Wake up each morning holding to this truth and be a light for God and praise Him! May God bless your week as you thank Him for the new life He’s given you. (Devon Moore)

For the past few weeks, Sr. Youth has been collecting donations for 30 Hour Famine. We are so grateful for all the support our Immanuel church family is giving us in our efforts to help God’s precious children who struggle with poverty, hunger, and disease in the world. We are thankful for the $778 we have received so far. If you have not had a chance to be a part of this life saving program, you may do so until April 6.

Sr. Youth invites all of our Immanuel friends and families to an upcoming special event.  Please join us for Easter Sunrise Service and Breakfast on Easter. Sr. Youth has led the Worship for the Sunrise Service for over a decade. Our young people are anxious, honored, and humbled to get up really early and lead the celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection. Following Worship, Sr. Youth will serve Easter Breakfast.  A Free Will offering is appreciated. We hope our whole Immanuel family will join us to celebrate the greatest thing that ever happened for us: Jesus’ defeat of death and the devil. (Take-n-Bake burritos will be available after service on Saturday, April 19.)

Karaoke machine needed:  Senior Youth is planning a Karaoke night in April; unfortunately, we do not have a Karaoke machine. If you have a machine that you would be willing to lend to the SY for an evening, please contact Mary Boucher, 379-2965.

This weekend marks the start of Balloon Fiesta. The sky fills up each morning with balloons and the city is alive with visitors. The balloons direct our gaze away from what is right in front of us and pull our view upwards. The cross does the same thing. The cross directs our gaze away from what is right in front of us, our momentary struggles and challenges on earth, aloft, to God. While the balloons may be pretty, there is nothing quite as beautiful as the love God has for us. His love which allows us to place our hope in Him, no matter what happens here. When we take our gaze off of what is temporary, to what is eternal, it’s a totally different outlook. So enjoy the balloons in the sky this coming week, and May God bless your week as you thank Him for giving you a whole new outlook on life. (Devon Moore)

Happy Fall! Fall is my favorite season. It has God’s fingerprints all over it. The changing leaves are His fingerprints, the crisp air is His fingerprint. Going forward into the fall season, full of holidays, family and festivities, I want to try to hold onto His presence and peace woven into each fingerprint I see. His peace that’s in the quiet, early mornings when I can take a breath of fresh air and say “Thank you God for this moment” and on cool fall nights, when I look up at the stars. His presence that’s there as I sit back to be still and to just listen. The coming season is a fun, yet busy, one. Don’t forget to stop sometimes for a second to take a breath, to look all around you at autumn and see God’s fingerprints, everywhere. May God bless your week as you thank Him for small reminders of His presence and His peace.  (Devon Moore)

 

Food, games and friends—what a great way to spend a Friday evening. Senior youth gathered for dinner, water balloon volleyball and football Frisbee (or at least an entertaining version of it) with lots of laughter and good times.  If you would like to participate in Senior Youth activities, please contact Mary Boucher with your e-mail address or cell number for future notifications; 379-2965 or ilcsenioryouth@gmail.com.
