FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH YOUTH GROUP NEWS

Hello Springfield! It is good to be home from one of the most amazing mission trips we have done so far. There were 17 youth and 3 adult leaders from the First United Methodist Church, that went to Lame Deer, MT. We had such an awesome time with the children and people of that community! We painted houses, helped with a Kids Club (something like a Vacation Bible School), and learned so much about the Cheyenne culture. Probably best of all, we got to spend some quality time with the Lord and His Word. The Holy Spirit was thriving in these youth this week. Don’t be surprised if you see us on a “prayer walk” in your neighborhood soon.

So many laughs and a few tears really helped to bond our group into a tight family. I wish I had the time or space to write it out for all of you but please stop our kids and ask about the trip. I am sure they would be willing to share some great stories.

 

We understand that none of this would have been possible without the love and support of you folks in our church and community so Thank You!!


I also wanted to throw a thank you to Mike Smith and Kristi Benson. They were our adult leaders

who did an amazing job!!  

-Ron Smith, Youth Group Leader

Lofte Community Theatre

15841 Manley Rd

PO Box 62

Manley,  NE  68403

The Lofte Community Theatre announces that its summer musical, "Annie," will open Friday, July 22, 2011.    

Annie” is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. Soon Annie befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a loveable mutt named Sandy.

Ellie Swanson of Lincoln stars in the title role.  Kris Raasch (also of Lincoln) plays he cantankerous Oliver Warbucks.  Anna Stroebel of Omaha plays the conniving Miss Hannigan.  The production is directed by Lofte Artistic Director, Kevin Colbert.  

Performance dates are July 22-24, 28-31 and August 4-7.  Curtain times are 7:30pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  Sundays are 2pm matinees.  Tickets for adults are $18.  For this production only, children under the age of 12 are only $10.    

The Lofte Community Theatre is located just east of the intersection of Hwy 1 and Hwy 50 near the town of Manley.  For more information, please visit www.Lofte.com or call the box office (402) 234-2553.



AUDITION NOTICE

 The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will be holding auditions for its next production, "Cliffhanger" on Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday, July 27 at 7pm.  

This suspenseful thriller revolves around a mild-mannered Philosophy Professor who may be passed over for his long-awaited position as an endowed chair at the University.  What will happen to his ruthlessly ambitious successor?  How far will this gentle man go to protect his reputation and career?  
There are several great parts to be had in this meaty story.  Directed by Kevin Colbert, auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.  The cast calls for 3 men and 2 women.  Complete role descriptions can be found on the Lofte's audition page (http://www.lofte.com/auditions.htm).   

 

Production dates for "Cliffhanger" are September 3, 4, 9-11 and 15-18.  Those who have questions in regards to the show may contact Artistic Director Kevin Colbert by calling the theater at (402) 234-2553.
