7th Grade Fundraising

Confirmation Camp – 2019

During the year there will be two main fundraisers to aid everyone on their journey into Confirmation, starting the summer before 8th grade. Each student planning to attend Confirmation needs to begin with the “Kick-Off to Confirmation Camp” which is a week- long camp in early June.

Cinnamon Rolls – Every Sunday in March – 2019

Cinnamon Roll sales start during Lent every year. An order form can be found outside the office, or at the back of the sanctuary during the sales period.  Individual rolls will also be available for purchase during Fellowship time on those 5 Sundays.   Our 7th graders & their families will be scheduled to prepare, bake, and sell the rolls for those 5 Sundays. The working schedule and details will be given to the 7th grade families and youth as the sale dates approach.

7th Grade Soup Supper – Ash Wednesday – March 6th, 2019

Each Wednesday during Lent the youth serve a wide variety of homemade soups donated from our congregation members.

The 7th Grade class (with help from their parents and other church leaders) will prepare, serve & clean up for the  1st of 6 soup supper nights.

Confirmation students will prepare, serve & clean up for the following 5 Soup suppers.

Instructions for Youth Sunday Service

The 2nd Sunday of every month is “Youth Sunday”

Acolytes: Please arrive 15 minutes before the service begins to let the Pastor know you are here. Go to the acolyte room to robe up. Please light the candles at least 5 minutes before the service begins. The candles on the Altar need to be lit. If there is a Baptism that day, please light the Baptism candle. The Acolytes sit by Pastor Marggi in the first right pew. If she needs your assistance at Communion or at the Children’s sermon, you can help her.

Ushers: Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the service begins. We’ll need an usher at each side of the entrances to the sanctuary. Ushers hand out bulletins to the congregation members as they arrive. During the offering, the ushers pick up the offering plates from the acolyte at the front of the church. Ushers split to each side of the church to help pass the plate to each pew. If there are 4 ushers, one will go to each side of the pew, the wall & the aisle. This helps for a very easy & quick offering time & is very helpful to the congregation members. Make sure you count how many people are in attendance at the service & write this down on the paper inside the baggy found on the usher stand at the main entrance. After the service is over, please empty the offering plates into the baggy. The loose change and dollars should be counted & written in the appropriate place on the paper. The checks & envelopes do not get counted; just place them in the envelope. This baggy goes in the slot on the door of the main office downstairs.

Readers: The secretary will always e-mail the reading the week before or Cindy will hand you a copy at confirmation class. There is usually only one reading and a responsive Psalm to read. We only have you read at the one assigned service.

 

NOTE: The above schedule is SET for Ushering, Reading & Acolytes.  IF you CANNOT attend one of these assigned services, it is YOUR DUTY to find a replacement, NOT Cindy’s, NOT a Pastor’s, NOT the Secretary’s. Please let the Secretary or Cindy know of any changes so the bulletin will be updated with the correct names.

 

Youth Fundraising 2018-19

Youth Fundraising

Scrip Cards Program starts in November and December

Scrip cards are gift cards you buy & can use at many different retail stores, restaurants & gas stations.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Person buys a Scrip card for ‘Store XYZ’ (listed with an 8% return). They pay a youth $100.
  2. Then URLC pays ‘Scrip’ $92 for the $100 card and keeps $8.00 (the 8% return).
  3. Card arrives, goes to person.
  4. Person spends $100 at ‘Store XYZ’.
  5. The Youth just made $8, and person didn’t loose a penny.

It’s a win-win for buyer & URLC. The forms will be available outside of the office or you can download and print the order form at http://www.urlchurch.org/scrip. Not only do these make awesome gifts for any holiday or special occasion they are also great to use while doing your own shopping.
