Read below for a message from Emily Claycomb:  

The GEMS Ministry at First United Methodist Church is in need of high school volunteers on Friday, April 12, 

5:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.  This is a Parents' Night Out for children with special needs and their siblings (At 5:00, there is a brief training all volunteers need to be present for.  The children will start arriving around 5:30).  We need youth volunteers just to be there to play with the children, help them with the craft, hunt Easter eggs, and to basically assist them with the various activities throughout the evening.  There will be children with special needs there as well as typical children (siblings).  The children range in age from 3-14.  The more "involved" children (which is only about 5 children) will have a one-on-one adult with them as well.  This night is a lot of fun for the participants and volunteers alike.  If you have questions, please call or text Emily Claycomb at 318-518-7960.  Thank you!!
