Sidney Assembly Of God Youth To Hold Fundraisers For National Fine Arts Festival Trip

On May 26 and June 3, Sidney Assembly of God Youth will be holding two different fundraisers in preparation for a trip for some of the youth to the National Fine Arts Festival in Columbus, OH. Those that are going competed for the ability to attend and are looking forward to the experience.

According to their website, the Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of the AG Youth Ministries designed to help students discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts and to learn about their God-given abilities and talents. The staff will encourage students to develop their gifts and then use them in their schools, churches, and communities. Fine Arts Festivals enable students to experience a time of learning through evaluations, workshops, and interaction with other students. Beginning in September each year, over 65,000 junior and senior high school students begin preparing their entries for the district and National Fine Arts Festivals. These students are encouraged to develop their gifts to a greater level than the year before. Students may enter as many as 80+ categories offered in seven main divisions: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing. It is going to cost $105 per person plus the cost of the hotel, food, and plane ticket. Nine students qualified this year with 15 different entries.

To fund this incredible opportunity, the Sidney AOG Youth are holding a series of fundraisers. The first one is a movie night showing "Jesus Revolution" in the church sanctuary on May 26 at 6 p.m. Admission is by free-will donation. The church coffee shop will be open for the showing and concessions will be available. On June 3 at 9 a.m. the youth will be holding a rummage sale in the Sidney AOG gym and starting in the last week of June the Sidney AOG Youth will be running a fireworks stand. The exact dates and location of the stand will be determined in June.

Sidney Assembly of God is located at 414 E. Main St., Sidney next to White Drug. For more information about Sidney Assembly of God or the events they have check out their website at, call the office at 406-433-2550, or look for them on Facebook.
