News and Notes


August 19 – 26


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!! – Parents, would you like to stay in touch with important updates and last minute changes about youth events via text messages?! If so, send a text message to the number 40404 and in the message type “Follow @crievehallyouth”. It’s as easy as that! From now on you will be able to receive updates from the youth group Twitter account via text message, even if you don’t have a Twitter account! To unsubscribe from these texts at any time, simply type “Unfollow @crievehallyouth” and send to the same number. We hope this is a practical tool that can be used to quickly get a hold of youth and parents alike. We will try to keep texts to a minimum and only include the most important updates.


OPPORTUNITY – We have an opening for a family to host the next 9th-12th devotional on Sunday evening, September 6th. If you would like to host this activity, please contact Aaron this week. Thank you!
