Computer Things You Should Know



Hello All,

For those of you who do not know, my name is Joanna Simmerman and I am the
youth minister at Mt. Carmel.  At the April Presbytery meeting I was
appointed as the new Youth Advisor for Columbia Presbytery and I am very
excited about working with all of you and our youth to create unity and
Christian fellowship among our churches and young people within the
Presbytery. I have attempted to create this e-mail list from contacts from
Patrick and other e-mail communications, but I may have missed people so
please let me know if there is anyone who needs to be added or taken off of
this list.

I know that it is very late in the year to be pinning down a mission trip
and I apologize for that, but I would love for us to still be able to
gather our youth and serve God and our neighbors together this summer and
we have finally found an opportunity to do just that.
