Community Youth Group (CYG)

Sunday Evenings from 5:15 pm-7:30 pm, come check out the fun the youth in our community are having at First Baptist Church! This group represents several churches from the area who come together to talk about things that affect you everyday and help you make good choices. The youth do a lot of ‘cool’ things, some of which are going to open gym, going to a comedy club, eating out together, bringing in the New Year together, etc.

CYG! Prepare Yourself to Change the World

Do you want to be the change in the community around you? Does it bring you joy to bring hope to others by serving them? Join us for the 2018 Mid-High ‘Mission Stay’. Students will gather for a meal, activities, and worship at 6:30 pm on Thursday, August 2nd. Friday, students will serve the community of Ottawa and various non-profits. Saturday will be spent serving in Kansas City at Harvesters. Once finished with their projects in Kansas City students will end their experience with a water activity. Cost is $50 per student. Please fill out a commitment form and return it to a CYG leader by June 24th.

Details about lodging, etc. will be handed out at a later date.

Meet & Eat

When going to the grocery store, please consider picking up some fresh fruit and vegetables for the Ottawa Library’s Meet & Eat Program. They will be served daily to children and adults of Ottawa wanting a healthy snack. Any donations may be brought to the church or please feel free to drop them off at the Ottawa Library Children’s desk. We will collect them thru the end of this month.

As always, thank you for helping our community!

Save the Date!

The Hasty Family once again will be hosting their annual 4th of July celebration complete with the best fireworks around! Please keep Wednesday, July 4th on your calendars and join in an unforgettable time for all ages!

The Hastys will provide pulled pork sandwiches as the main dish, plus they will have drinks and ice cream. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share with others. Kindly RSVP the number of people you will be bringing so they have accurate numbers for smoking the pork shoulders. If you have house guests or friends, feel free to bring them, but also include them in your count.

There will be fishing, shuffleboard, games, bubbles, a moonwalk, a maze, a cotton candy machine, a popcorn machine, and the SnoShack Mobile! Fishing poles and worms will be provided, but if you can bring poles, that would be great!

Don’t forget to bring your chairs! The Ottawa Brass will provide patriotic music, so please make sure to mark this on your calendar! It is truly a one of a kind event and all because of the generosity of the wonderful Hasty family. Judy said this was always one of her late husband, Jim’s activities and he loved seeing the children have a great time!

Please watch Facebook for notification of weather cancellation.
