"Thank you so much to those who contributed to the Youth Ministries fund for the Six Flags trip.   You contributed $340, which was a significant help in purchasing tickets for our young people.  Because of your generosity, every child who wanted to participate in the field trip was able to participate.  Kudos to you!
