June 23 and 24 – OYC Youth Services and Activities

We are praising the Lord for another great state meeting! Thank you to everyone who listened to our 2016 report and voted to accept it and our 2018 budget.

Congratulations to Jacob Lute for being this year’s $1,000 college scholarship winner. In order to continue with our scholarship opportunities and state meeting activities, we will need the continued support of the churches of the state of Ohio. We have been blessed by you in the past, and ask that you consider continuing generous support of the youth of the state.

We are glad to have Deanna Price (Porter) for another term and welcome Mike Ellis (Heritage) onto the board.

Once again, our Friday evening service and laser tag were well attended. We had 100 in attendance in our elementary and junior/senior high services!

The great thing was that most returned Saturday morning for Q&A. Our special guest speaker Aaron Pontious did an excellent job in both services. We pray that our youth had their faith strengthened by his Friday message and Saturday Q&A.

Don’t forget to support our competitors at the National Association in Louisville July 16-19. Have a great summer!
