ON WEDNESDAY, Genie Johns will be awarded the Honor Star at Bethel Christian Academy.
The teen, a member of the Missionettes, the church's youth group somewhat akin to Girl and Boy Scouts, has attained one of the highest honors the Missionettes gives.
We are hurtling toward the finish line in the recitation of the fine scholars at Hammond High who earned certificates of merit, along with their diplomas.
Congratulations to Marcus MacFarland Tapscott, Jennifer Marie Tate, Garrett Alan Thompson, David Terrence Tollick, Kellye Elise Townsend, Angela Trinidad Trancucci, Michael Brandt Troup, Erin Leigh Whate, Christina Michele Wilmer, Michelle Diane Zinar and Ari Gene Zytcer.
Benefit car wash
At Bethel Christian Academy on Savage-Guilford Road on Saturday, it looked a bit like the late unlamented winter past: white fluffy stuff all over. But it wasn't a very localized snowstorm. It was the free car wash sponsored by the Bethel Assembly of God's youth group, Priority One.
The wet band of Sarah Coon, Erin Eitemiller, Patrick Flores, Andrew Garrahan, Christine Garrahan, Chanell Green, Nathan Hruska, Caleb Ksanznak, Mark Rushing, Cori Samuels, Tabatha Schrader, Darryl Vorhies and Ashley Bowers were sudsing for a good cause.
The donations that they received went to the Speed of Light fund, which buys cars and equipment for missionaries. This wet Saturday raised more than $300 for the fund.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the organizational efforts of the adult helpers and youth leaders. The mobile missionaries will remember Rick Bowers, Steve Khan, Jonny and Alice Green, Loveta Cook and Heather Pepin in their prayers.
The youth group meets every Friday at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Bethel Christian Academy. Interested parties can call the church office about the group or the church's other activities.
