Youth group Fundraising opportunity: The Sr. High Youth Group has been given the opportunity to raise money for the 2016 National Youth Gathering in New Orleans by cleaning up trash on Sunday mornings after Purdue home football games.  The work will include cleaning up the parking lots and golf course which were used for parking.  Everyone should meet at the north parking lot next to Ross-Ade Stadium at 8:00 a.m. to help.  Parents, siblings, and friends are all invited to help with this fundraiser.  The remaining Sunday dates to help clean up this year are October 12, November 9, and November 23.  The youth who can attend the 2016 Gathering are students currently in the 8th-11th grade.  This activity will take place regardless of poor weather conditions, so please come prepared.  Please notify Dave Probst at 423-1616 if you are interested in helping.  On the weekends of any cleanup, please make sure you worship at St. James either on Saturday at 6 p.m. or Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
