High School Youth Group 

Our last meeting of the year will be Sunday, April 24th from 4-6pm and we will be joined by the teens from Messiah Lutheran Church in Wauconda as we celebrate the end of the year with games and fellowship.

I was so grateful for such wonderful weather and a great turn out for our Easter Egg Hunt's on Palm Sunday!  We had 22 children aged birth to 5th grade attend the Sunday School egg hunt and 10 middle and high schoolers attend the glow egg hunt in the evening to help us find 1000 eggs in all. You may even find a few well-hidden ones still around the church property!  The Easter bunny even made a few appearances. Thank you to our middle and high schoolers who helped support the Sunday School egg hunt and thank you to Ross and Beth Papke, Cathy and Faith Malloy, Karen Dahlke, Debbie Dice and Pastor Daniel for helping to crack glow sticks and hide our glow eggs. A special thank you to Liz Hopman and Natalie Trumbull for helping to support our snacks for the morning and our spring crafts that will be shared with our neighbors at The Auberge.
