Good afternoon!

Over the past few months, you have been receiving the MFYG (Mini Family Youth Group) in the hopes of assisting you and your family have fun and grow in your faith while under the stay at home order. With the order lifted, this will be the last MFYG. I have felt truly blessed hearing how the use of this resource has helped you and your family grow during this pandemic. We will reevaluate the need for MFYG and potentially bring it back in the fall.  

I will have a simple 6-week summer series beginning June 17th that will be sent out for those who would like to participate.

 Have a happy and safe summer!
