Presbyterian youth fish fry fundraiser a success
Four area Presbyterian churches joined together to hold a fish fry on April 13 to benefit the youth of all four churches. Swift Church initiated the idea, and First Foley, Orange Beach and Gulf Shores Presbyterian churches all joined in, selling tickets, baking cookies, frying fish, and attending to every little detail needed to make the event a success. The profit totaled $1,332.84. Thank you, everyone.
Funds raised by the fish fry are in a separate fund, “Youth Camp,” at Swift Church, to be used for members of any of the four churches to attend the Montreat Youth Conference, to assist chaperones with their expenses, and, if there are funds remaining, to assist with sending youth and children to other approved summer camps and conferences.
■ SWAG (formerly Kids’ Club) is for children in grades K–4. In May, on a date to be determined, there will be an end-of-year celebration.
■ GΦG is our youth group for ages fifth grade through high school.
Both groups meet at the church and have a lesson, games and a small meal.
■ Refuel, our periodic Wednesday night youth group meeting, is from 6 to 8 p.m. You are encouraged to invite your school friends, neighbors, etc. If anyone would like to prepare a meal for children or youth, please let Teresa Thomas or Tara Morrow know.
