Pastor Sarah has invited our youth to join the youth of Lord of Mercy in Sparks when they start confirmation in late February (dates and times to be announced) and will plan to meet twice a month. The Mt. Cross material will be used and will be going to camp in July 12-17 (I believe).  We will be getting the last two of this years boxes from them and then start in the fall with all the retreats and things.  Right now they are planning next years retreats to have one in Tahoe and one at the camp.

Please contact Marcie If you would like to see the material from Mt. Cross to get an idea of how confirmation works so she can set up a meeting and if you are interested in having your youth start confirmation so I can let Pastor Sarah know.  Please contact Marcie at 775-771-1487.


If you receive manufacturers coupons in the mail, or your Sunday paper, and have no use for some of them, or any of them, please bring them to Sunni Leggate. She will send them to Support Our Troops group in Florida. They distribute them to military families. If they are expired, or close, please bring them anyway as military families can use them on base up to six months past their expiration date.

If you do not have time to clip them, don't worry about it as Sunni will clip them, or maybe we will arrange a clipping party in the church hall one Sunday.

I would also like to thank all of you have been bringing coupons. It is greatly appreciated! Please keep them coming! Thank you!
