Get Ready for the 2014 FUSN Youth Coffee House

Plan to buy your tickets—after services on February 16, February 23, or at the door—for the 2014 Youth Coffee House on Saturday, March 1.

The event kicks off at 7 p.m. with acoustic, dance, and comedy acts; bands hit the stage from 9-11 p.m. in the FUSN Parish Hall.

Proceeds of tickets ($5 for youth; $10 for adults) and sales of snacks, tee shirts, and Zambian items benefit the Chawama Family Support Home for AIDS Orphans and Vulnerable Children in a small township near Lusaka and Communities Without Borders.

Every Year Is a Blast!

The efforts of some 30 FUSN youth and 15 adults who serve on the leadership team, committees, and/or as performers make this event successful each year. More than 200 attendees buy tickets, food, beverages.

The Coffee House is pure entertainment! The acts include a capella groups, bands, comedy troupes, dancers, and musical performances by teenagers from Newton North and Newton South high schools. Two FUSN teens serve as MCs and engage the crowd with humor.

John MacGaffey shares his violin technique.
