Hello Orthodox Youth Mission Team:
Glory to Jesus Christ!
Our next MANDATORY training session will take place next Sunday, Feb. 11th at St. John’s Orthodox Church (364 Mill Hill Ave., Bridgeport, CT) from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. At this meeting we will be preparing our “stock sale” fundraiser. This is the BIGGEST fundraiser our team does and it is very important that every team member participates fully. Teens will be sending letters to family and friends asking them to “invest” in our team with a donation of $10 (or more). (Note: if you are a new family to our team these are not actual stock shares—just a metaphor to help donors understand where their funds are going!) Please bring mailing addresses on peel and stick labels. (We suggest using your family’s Christmas card list.) We will have the letters an all other supplies necessary for this fundraiser.
Please also bring $4 for dinner. We are looking for parents who would like to prepare dinner for our team for this and future meetings. We will reimburse you for the amount your spend on the food—we just need volunteers to buy and prepare the dinner for the team while the meeting is going on. Please email me if your are willing to do this for the Feb. 11 or other upcoming meetings.
We got off to a great start at our first meeting and we are excited about our team for 2018!
If you have any questions about what is needed for this meeting or the fundraiser (or anything else!) please don’t hesitate to contact me.
In Christ, Susan
P.S. No leader meeting this month!
