What about PARENTS?

As always, parents are always invited to participate in our Youth events. But, parental participation for this retreat is not required. I will need a sufficient number of parents (ladies and men) to sign up to help as chaperones/counselors.

What About FOOD?

We would like some parents to volunteer to prepare the food for the meals, but the church can purchase or reimburse the cost of the food. It would be great to have a few parents volunteer for a each meal assignment.
