Participate in Bear Creek Youth’s Envelope Fundraiser

Want to support the youth and help make a difference in our community? Grab an envelope between services Sunday, April 19, in the Courtyard and buy “stock” in our students! Envelopes are numbered 1-200. If you take the #36 envelope, give $36. If you take the #149 envelope, give $149. It’s that easy!

Fundraiser participants will be invited to a special dinner at the beginning of the school year, where they will be able to hear from our students about how their summer trips and activities impacted their lives and what they’re looking forward to in the new school year. In addition, all participants will receive notes from our students who attend trips this summer as well as emails with photos and videos while they are away. What a great way to stay connected to our youth as they grow in their faith and serve others!

Please return the envelopes with your gift (and the enclosed information slip, completed) to the offering plate or the church office.
