Another Year with R.E.A.C.H.
"...and with that, the gym fell silent." Those were my thoughts as we shut off the lights and closed the door on another year of our REACH program for our Summer hiatus. Since early September 2013, we opened our doors and hearts to dozens of young people every other Friday night. Averaging about 34 youths a night, REACH was a place for youth to come eat, play games and enjoy each other's company. Lead by an outstanding group of volunteers: Jane Von Bergen, Maurice Smith, Hector Badeau, Jermaine and Jerome Johnson and Pastor Cheryl Pyrch, we were able to provide a safe environ-ment for young people to gather for three hours. Over the summer we will look at different ways to build on the program including ways to allow other members to share their talents with us. Thank you to the volunteers and everyone for their prayers and words of encouragement. Until next time, have a great summer! Chris Scott, Jr. R.E.A.C.H. Director

Kirkwood Camp
Six Summit youth are returning to Kirkwood Camp and registration is still open (www.kirkwoodcamp.org).So far Summit campers have registered for the Joy of Creation Week (August 17-23rd, grades 4-12) but there are different emphases throughout the summer and weeks for younger campers as well.The deacons offer a $200 scholarship to each camper (look for a fundraising event in May or June) and Deborah Merritt serves on the Kirkwood board. This is a wonderful Presbytery-sponsored camp, reasonably priced with an emphasis on both faith and fun.Talk to Deborah Merritt if you'd like to learn more.

Summit Family Picnic Sunday, June 22nd
As a way of wrapping up the Sunday School year, the Christian Ed. Committee is planning a Family Picnic, to be held immediately after worship on Sunday, June 22. We will also be thanking our Sunday School teachers. So please mark your calendars for June 22, and join us for a cook-out instead of the usual coffee hour, on the side lawn (if weather permits). We hope to provide games, crafts, and other activities for the kids.

Elder Diner Update
As we approach the last few months of the year, the committee would like to report that Elder Diner is going strong and seems to be growing, with attendance of 25 or more on a regular basis. For those who may not be aware, a wonderful group of seniors (with guests and even some babies occasionally attending) meets for a hearty lunch at noon on Tuesday's in the parlor to enjoy fellowship, conversation and laughter. As always, we welcome and encourage contributions of a main dish, bread, salad or dessert. You can either talk to one of the committee members, or check out the sign up calendar in the kitchen at coffee hour. We are thankful for the many wonderful contributions we have received over the years. Thanks! The Elder Diner Committee: Anne Glass, Dave Rupp, Sandy Dorsey and Cheryl Pyrch

All are welcome to a dinner and meeting of the Northwest Region of the Presbytery where we will hear Professor Katie Day of Lutheran Theological Seminary speak about her book: “Faith On the Avenue: Religion on a City Street.” This book about churches, mosques, synagogues and more along Germantown Ave. is fascinating. Talk to Cheryl for more information.
