Did you miss us last month? Claire was feeling the holiday stress and didn’t get her article in! Oops. We’re back on track and busy as ever. The focus this month has been CHANGE. Sometimes change is good, sometimes stressful and difficult to weather. During discussions we decided that a lot of it depends on your attitude. Being forced to transfer to a new school or take a class you didn’t want to take can be bad…unless you look at it as an opportunity to make new friends and learn something new. And, going along with this theme, we decided it was time to make some major changes in the Youth House living room. We tossed old furniture, rearranged what was leftover, and bought a new area rug. Just those small changes have made the room so much more open. The layout is far more conducive to conversations. Speaking of change, we’ll also be participating in the Soupe rBowl of Caring (see the description below). After all, a little change can make a big difference.
Souper Bowl of Caring! Meet at the church at 9:15 to collect change after the first service. Return at 11:15 to collect after the second service. All money collected will go to the Idaho Food Bank.

Hillview Youth Group is yet again collecting change for the Idaho Foodbank as part of the National Souper Bowl of Caring! Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-inspired, youth-led movement working with other groups across the nation, including schools, churches, local businesses, corporations, passionate individuals, and NFL teams to tackle hunger in their local communities during the weeks leading up to the biggest celebration in football, the Super Bowl. In 2019 nearly 5,000 groups collected over $9.6 million in dollars and food donations for hunger-relief charities across the country. Over $150 million has been collected since Souper Bowl of Caring began in 1990. On February 2nd, bring your change to drop in our soup pots after each service!!! (bills and checks accepted, of course…they just don’t make as much noise).
