Youth Ministry Christmas Party:

December 10th

Our Youth Ministry’s Christmas party will be on Sunday, December 10th, from 5 to 7:15 p.m. (Please note the time change for this Sunday). All students will meet at the church. High School students will be transported to the Montgomery home, and Middle School students will remain here at the church.

We ask that each student bring the following two items:

  • a gift for the White Elephant gift exchange of no more than $15, and
  • a dish of deserts or appetizers.
  • In the spirit of making the gift exchange more interesting, please don’t bring gift cards as the gift. Ask your child to put a little thought into a gift that anyone would want to take home at the end of the night. It can be a gag gift if so desired, but try and make sure that it is an appropriate and something that will be wanted. Also, note that we will not be serving a full dinner that evening, just appetizers and deserts.

    If you have any questions, please contact Rev. David Burchett, Director of Youth Ministries, by e-mail at dburchett@duluthumc.org, or call 770-476-3776, ext. 119.
