This Weekend is our fifth Confirmation Prep night

All Groups:

This week we are going to be focused on Confirmation Prep with a twist. Instead of breaking into Year One, Year Two, and Post Confirmation groups, we are going to be working all together to answer the question, “Why Do We Do That?

Specifically, we are going to be talking about some of the foundations of our Catholic faith.

This topic will cover both hours of the night as we have some activities intermingled into the discussions.

 

 

The Life Night 12/10/2017: Youth Empowered To Overcome!

Empowered

We are going to hit 4 topics that all of you have experienced in one way or another and try to give you the power to overcome them!

  • Just Do it!
    (That time we did that thing because we just wanted to fit in)

  • Just Toughen Up!
    (Getting past the people that have tried to hold us down.)

  • Just Deal With It!
    (How loneliness has impacted us and how we can overcome it)

  • Good Is Good Enough
    (I once decided to just settle for just getting by)

Come hear from the experts, your peers, and join in on the discussion.

Volunteer Opportunity: Annual CCCOA Food Drive

CCCOA

On December 21st and 22nd, the Cumberland County Council on Older Adults will hold their 2017 Christmas Food Drive to provide a Christmas meal to the less fortunate of our community.

The drive is only as successful as the people that are able to volunteer their time to make it happen.

What we need…

On the 21st: People to come to the CCCOA offices to assemble the meals into bags.

We will work in an assembly line to put together all of the various food items into the complete meal that will be delivered the next day. In years past, we have assemble hundreds of meals, so lots of help is needed!

On the 22nd: People to come to the CCCOA offices to help load the bags into vehicles to be delivered.

Drivers will arrive in waves at the CCCOA offices and need assistance in loading up the meals that they will be tasked with delivering.

If you volunteer both days, and work from start to finish, you will earn a minimum of 10 service hours along with the joy that comes with living the faith that we all profess.
