Just for Fun
In addition to our Wednesday night craziness, we are having a youth group outing to the Greene on Saturday, August 25th! Meet in the grass area at the center of the Greene at 6:00 and wear your snazziest dressy clothes. (Goodwill has some great ones if you don’t have anything in your closet!) We will have dinner at the Greene and then head to Flash Photography at 8:00 for crazy youth group pictures!
Details for a youth group campout this fall at Margaret’s house are in the works. Word is there may even be a bonfire. And smores.
Sunday programs between services start September 9th! Middle school students head to the middle school room (near the supply room in the downstairs hall with the yellow walls). This year we are purchasing a special curriculum that spans 2 years and will prepare the students for confirmation. It is a great program and we would love to have all middle school students come! High school students have two between service options. Students who would like to shepherd one of the children’s classes can sign up with Pastor Jackie or Ms. Barb. Shepherds work with the same class each week and help the children with their rotations and Bible stories. High school students are also invited to a new high school Sunday School class in the ARK! Bring your Bibles with you!
