How to build a successful church youth program!

Posted by Sara Kurien on Aug 4, 2016 11:00:00 AM


Offering a youth program is key to getting kids of all ages involved in your church.  Encouraging them to attend Sunday service is a great place to start but engaging the youth throughout the week and over the summer is the goal!  As you are wrapping up your summer youth programs, you need to look toward the future.  This is the perfect time to reflect on the youth programs offered by your church and what you want to offer during the next school year.  The programs you offer are vital to our children's’ growth and development and should be given prayerful consideration.  If you are new to coordinating church youth programs, this might seem like a daunting task but it is not.   The entire process can be broken down to manageable pieces and tackled easily.  Take comfort in the fact you are not alone in this.  There are a lot of folks within your reach who are willing to help and want to see church youth programs succeed.

Fundraising products are not all created equal!!

Posted by John Jackson on Jul 27, 2016 11:00:00 AM

We talk to a lot of fundraising distributors who try to maximize the sales they have and grow their business. How do you know you are offering the things that people want and items consumers will support and purchase? The wrong product doesnt neccessarily show its face in a season. Its the following year when the consumer remembers the prior year. Was it cookie dough that was "OK" tasting? Maybe it was wrapping paper that was cheap and flimsy. Todays buyers are quality conscious and expect what they pay for.

Meet our Friend Saniya - St. Jude's Patient of the Month

Posted by Jared West on Feb 5, 2016 6:46:22 AM

Saniya: 3 years old

Diagnosis:  eye cancer 

Saniya’s story:    

When Saniya was 8 months old, her mom, Samantha, noticed that every once in a while, her left eye seemed to glow, especially in photographs.

A visit to the eye doctor didn’t show anything abnormal. But then Saniya’s eye began to get worse. It turned red, like a blood vessel had burst, and then it became clear to Saniya’s parents that she couldn’t see out of her left eye. Follow up tests soon revealed that Saniya suffered from retinoblastoma, an eye cancer that typically develops in children before 5 years old. “You never think your child will have cancer,” Samantha said. “We were devastated.” Saniya’s family turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for her treatment.

Eden: 4 years old

Diagnosis:  Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia 

Eden’s story:    

For nearly a year, 3-year-old Eden had been on and off antibiotics and in and out of the pediatrician’s office. Even though tests ruled out a virus or allergies, Eden’s parents were concerned something more serious was wrong, especially after Eden developed small, red spots on her face and bruises on her legs. “She’s the youngest of four children,” said her mom, Nicole. “I just knew something wasn’t right.”

Sorting Through the Cookie Dough Fundraiser Options

Posted by Jared West on Dec 2, 2015 12:00:00 PM

Most people love options, but sometimes having too many options overloads the brain. Several of my fellow Pine Valleyeans were talking about changing cable TV providers the other day, and the sheer number of packages and options made the whole process overwhelming. There were literally a dozen tier selections, several movie packages, and more sports options than we could possible consider. Does everything have to be this way?
