A special thank you to everyone who helped make our Youth Healthy relationships lock-in such a success Friday night, April 20. Thank you to everyone who donated food and who helped serve it (especially Dave Dohrmann). Thank you to Pastor Steve, Nanette, Kurt Parker, Laura and Ivan Ontiveros, Susie Baker, Sam Buckpitt, Tara Christensen, Bella Berry, Michael Alexander, Olivia Running, Christine and Gabriella Deets. Thank you to Bobbie Sudberry of Kaity’s Way for sharing her daughter’s story so that our teens may be better able to recognize the signs of abuse by boys or girls. We all need to continue the dialogue with our teens about the importance of healthy relationships. Look for more workshops and information in the coming months!

We are starting to investigate airfare for our trip to Houston. Right now it looks like American Airlines at $320 per person (plus tax) is our best bet. We now have 43 of us going!!!! This will be our largest group, ever! Your generosity during our dinner auction is allowing us to fund 80% of the trip. If you would like to make a donation toward this trip, please contact Renee Bennett at or 480 981-6199 X18.
Wednesday night 6-7:30 is youth group night for all youth 7-12th grade...
**We could use 1 or 2 more adult leaders during this event.** We meet every Wednesday for fun and fellowship (unless otherwise noted on the youth calendar). Adam Stein, our contemporary music leader, has been introducing our time together with 15 minutes of music and worship. Our senior high youth leadership team, C.R.E.W. ends many of the evenings with a brief testimony. This is a wonderful way to take a short break mid-week and join your fellow Christian friends for fun and fellowship! It is also a great way to make new friends. Feel free to invite others. The more the merrier!!
Are you in Jr. or Sr. High and have an interest in sharing your musical gift with others? Then join our Youth Band called, “Elisha and the She-bears”. Contact Adam at
