SPAGHETTI MUNCH FUNDRAISER  FOR PASSION CAMP - RED students will attend Passion Camp in Daytona Beach in June.  As a fundraiser, they will hold a spaghetti MUNCH immediately following service next Sunday, April 15th.  Tickets will be $10 for adults; $5 for children 12 and under. Be sure to sign up before you leave today.  See Tyson or one of the students in the lobby. Come enjoy the fellowship and a great homemade spaghetti meal, and help our kids get to camp.  And, of course, if you can help with scholarships, please indicate “RED Retreat” on the Other line on your envelope, and put it in the offering.  All funds will be distributed among the students as needed.
