Cup of Grace Café
Sign up at the info table to help with the Sunday morning “Cup of Grace Café.” Help is needed each week between services to make coffee and serve. You can earn money for your teen account by doing so. Talk to Nena Allevato (GregNena@AOL.com) for more details or to sign up.
How fundraisers work:
We use fundraisers for students to earn money to put towards all youth group events, including Momentum & retreats. When students earn money through an individual fundraiser (i.e. summer car washes, selling discount cards, church babysitting opportunities, Grace Cafe help, etc.) that money will get put into a teen account specifically for that student. The money in their teen account can only be spent for youth group events. Money that is put into the group account (i.e. t-shirt sales, aluminum can drive, donations etc.) is money that will be used for scholarship money.
If you have a fundraiser idea or need to know how much you have in your teen account, please talk to Eric Miller. We would love to provide as many opportunites for the teens to earn money for our events as possible.
