Emily or I will meet our youth at St. John's before 4:00 to go to the Firehouse together. At 4:30, after confirmation class is over, one of us will come back and pick up anyone else who wants to attend.  If you are needing a ride home afterward, we will gladly do that too. If you have questions, please contact me by text, phone, or Facebook message.
All ages are welcome and you do not need to be a member of St. John's to attend.  I encourage you to invite your friends and lets share to word of God together.
