Alright, so it isn't 'mandatory'...or even required...but here's the deal: Next Sunday is going to be a VERY IMPORTANT DAY for Sunday morning church! Not only are we having a POTLUCK DINNER, but there will be a society MEETING.
Why is this meeting so important? These meetings are where the church gets together to discuss IMPORTANT TOPICS. This meeting in particular will have some topics that are very relevant to the youth group and YOUR TEEN. So here's the lowdown on the whole thing:
WHO: You, your teen, and anyone else in your family that likes to eat!
WHAT: Bring yourself, your opinions, and a healthy appetite
WHEN: Next Sunday (December 12) After Church (12:00 to 2:00 or so)
WHERE: At the church, just follow your nose to the potluck dinner
WHY: So you can hear about the life of the church and make your voice heard!
A SOCIETY MEETING is a meeting with all the people connected to the church so we can talk about where the church is going and make IMPORTANT DECISIONS. You must be a member to vote, but you do NOT have to be a member to speak out! So if there's something YOU would like to see happen in our church, THIS IS THE TIME to talk about it!
These happen ONCE A YEAR or so, so if you're new and you want to check things out this will be great. If you've been around a while and it's 'old hat' to you, this is a great way to go and weigh in on the new things happening! Either way, you get a POTLUCK DINNER out of it! (bring a dish to pass if you can, and eat what everyone else brings!)
Hope to see you there!
