Hello Everyone this is just a friendly reminder that there is no youth group this week due to exams! Also I would like to remind everyone of a few events coming up. We will resume youth group February 3rd at 7:30-9:30 pm at Bethel. We will be discussing Selfishness. Grade 10s bring food snacks.
1. Valentines Dinner- February 12th Bethel Youth will be putting on their annual Valentines youth group fundraiser. The money will be used to raise money for students to go on various trips and adventures with youth group. This year our dinner has a Chinese theme. Doors open at 6:30 pm Dinner stats at 7 pm. The dinner will be held in the fellowship hall at Bethel CRC Listowel. Cost is $70 per couple and and donations for the dessert auction which will raise funds for students going to Nicaragua. Please RSVP to Pastor Bart by February 10th.
2. Serve- If you would like to go on serve this year we need a $70 deposit because of the high exchange rate. It is being held in Whitsinville Massachusetts on July 9-16th 2015. I hear the speaker is amazing! Cost is $400 per person because of the bad exchange rate. However there will be an opportunity to raise money through a fundraiser. And there is a possibility of the youth group subsidizing it further. If you would like to go I need you $70 deposit by February 18th 2015 so we can get the early bird rate.

3. Winter Retreat- On March 4, 5, and 6 we will be having our annual winter retreat. Our speaker will be Pete Olsen who is the head of the Tools program which is a program in Toronto that equips teens to serve their communities. Our worship team will be Redeemer's Alpha worship team. This year it will be held at the church so we can have an opportunity to put into action what we will learn about that weekend: Reaching out to the hurt, lost, and lonely. As a result the fee for the event has dropped to $30 per person. You must be registered with Pastor Bart by February 24th.
