Youth Artists to Benefit Youth Project

Youth are planning an arts coffeehouse for low-income area youth. Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Norge will host "Youth 4 Youth Coffeehouse" on Saturday, 26 August, from 6:00-8:00 p.m, co-sponsored by Thrivent Financial. The participants will include youth from across the Williamsburg area, singers, dancers, and instrumentalists. The event will also feature an art exhibit with original art and photography. The fundraiser is for Spirit Rising Backpack Program, an annual drive to provide backpacks, school supplies, and clothing to low income families. Spirit Rising is a nonprofit charity based on the Mattaponi Reservation in West Point, Va. There will be a free will offering and attendees are asked to bring in nonperishable food items for the food pantry. Contact the church office, 757.564.3745, or visit for more information on church programs.
