Jr Youth Group - Weekly update

from:Dheen, Hafeez

to:Youth Group

Dear Students and Parents,

As-Salaamu Alaikum. On 12/2/18, we had our service project at the Ronald Mcdonald House in Pittsburgh. It was combined with Sr. Youth due to restriction on number of people in the kitchen at one time so we divided into 2 groups. The 2nd group will go on 12/16/18 insha'Allah. For those who attended the first session, Alhamdulilah it was very successful and insha'Allah very rewarding experience for the students being able to work together as a team to prepare a meal for families who are both emotionally and financially burdened with the unfortunate circumstance of having a sick child in the hospital. 

For 12/9/18, class please read Chapter 4 from Footsteps book and use the attached worksheet which is also found in the the Google Drive folder for Jr Youth Group - 12/9/18 worksheet - which all students have access to this folder. 

Regards,
