Children, Youth and Family

A Note from Nicole

Dear Phinney Friends,
You may have already heard this rumor…and it’s true! Vacation Bible School is my very favorite week of the year, and camp is one of the best places on earth. I am thrilled I will get to share these transformative faith adventures with PRLC this summer. Please check for more details below and mark your calendars.

High School Book Study

Sundays @ 10:00am

All students in grades 9–12 are invited to gather in the youth room each Sunday morning. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be reading and discussing the book Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff by Christopher Moore. See Nicole for a copy of the book and reading schedule and be part of the wondering about the early years of Jesus’ life.

Small Actions, Big Change

Sunday, February 23 @ 1:30–5:30pm

A teach-in style event sponsored by Kids 4 Peace in honor of Black History Month “Small Actions Big Change” on February 23 at the Centilia Cultural Center. Youth grades 6-12 are encouraged to attend and should plan to meet at PRLC at 1:30 and return by 5:30pm. This event will take the place of regular 8th grade Confirmation. Please let Nicole know if you plan to go so she can complete registration and arrange transportation.

Coffee Corner

Wednesdays, February 5, 12, & 26; 3:30–5:00pm
