On behalf of the youth, Trekkers, their families and myself, I would like to thank you, our church family, for helping to make our Spaghetti Lunch on Sunday a HUGE success! We raised over $1,400 toward our goal of $4,000 for summer camp. That is a great start. The turnout was wonderful, and I know that some of you who were not able to stay donated anyway. We greatly appreciate all of you! I also want to say a huge thank you to our youth, Trekkers and their families for all of their hard work to make Sunday
happen. Our kids were hard workers and wonderful hosts and their parents were as well. It could not have happened without all of those efforts. Stay tuned for news about another lunch coming soon!
Youth and Trekkers, if you have not received information about camp, please let me know. Remember that you need to reserve your spot with a deposit by no later than Sunday, February 24. Both camps are going to be great experiences, and I hope you will make plans to attend! Please remember that if the deposit is an issue, you can come to me confidentially, and we will take care of you. There are always scholarships available. Money should never be a reason for you to not participate in an event or outing.
Youth, mark your calendars! Our next outing is Sunday, February 3. We will head to the mall after the morning service to grab a quick lunch, and then we will be off to Strike & Spare Family Bowl at the intersection of Hayfield Rd. and Parkside Dr. for an after-noon of bowling fun. Make sure that you wear or bring socks with you that day. You will need money for lunch. The church will cover the cost of bowling. Please RSVP by Friday, February 1 so I know how many to expect. Parents, we are going to need about 3 chaperones for the afternoon. If you are available, please let me know by Sunday, January 27.
Finally, I am planning another Family Indoor Drive-In Movie night for Friday, February 8 at 7 pm. We will be watching
Finding Nemo. Bring your blankets and maybe a pillow, even dress in your pajamas if you would like, and come enjoy a fun time of fellowship while watching a great movie. Then go home with some great discussion starters for your family to use to connect the film to your faith. The last indoor drive-in night was a lot of fun! I hope you will make plans to join us for this one. This event is open to the whole church family.
