Mark your calendars for this red-letter day when the Youth of the United Methodist Churches of the Grand Valley will lead Sunday worship at 10:00am at the Botanic Gardens.  All five UMCs will not be holding usual worship services in their own churches that day, but will instead gather together at this exciting Youth Event to support the young people of our churches.  Worshippers are asked to bring chairs, if you are able.  There will be chairs available for those who cannot pack their own and a golf cart available to transport people with a need from the parking lot to the seating area.  Within the service, the Crossroads UMC Praise Band will play music and Pastor Steve from First UMC will be doing baptisms and renewal of baptism in the river, for those who are interested.  Redlands UMC will be handling hospitality (please contact Jill Almgren if you would like to help in this effort (  The Youth wish to thank the members of each congregation for your support.  Please join us!!
