Sunday School – No, it’s Communion Sunday.  Please attend service with your parents.

August 6 – Four On the Couch & Gaining A Heart of Wisdom

Before you start back to school come out for an important reminder about numbering your days to get the most out of them and also gaining a heart of wisdom.  Eat before you come and meet us in the Fellowship Hall from 5:30 – 7:00.  We’ll play “Four On the Couch” and then have a quick important lesson about wisdom before going back to school.

August 12 – Back to School Bash at the Garneaus!

We will be having a back to school party at the Garneaus house on Saturday, August 12th.  Please watch this email for more details as it gets closer.  Also, be sure to sign up for my FREE Remind texts if you haven’t already (details below).

Fall Retreat! 

Put it on your calendar!  We are having a fall retreat September 22-24 at the Ponderosa Conference and Retreat Center in Larkspur. If you have a conflict, be aware we are only 45 minutes away and parents could bring you late or pick you up early – whichever works best.  Activities on this retreat include glow in the dark dodgeball, team building with low and high ropes course, campfires and a great opportunity to fellowship and grow in your faith.  Price will include everything and SHOULD be around $165/170.  Watch for details and how to sign up in the next couple of weeks!

Carpool to Youth Group?  Yes, Please!

Do you have a student in Jr. High and one in Sr. High?  Or would you like to connect with another family just to make life simpler for you on Sunday nights?  Please email April and tell her your children’s names and ages, and the area of town in which you live.  We will try our best to connect you with another family or two so maybe you will only need to make one trip to the church on Sunday evenings.  PARENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME to stay for Praise and Worship time with us!

A New Class for Parents of Youth

A wonderful opportunity for Youth Parents starts this Fall!  A new Sunday School class is going to be offered Starting September 10th at 10:45 in the Youth Room.  Students are encouraged to attend the 11:00 service with April, so you can connect with other parents and have an opportunity to grow in your faith.


 Sign Up for Meals for 2017-2018 School Year

We normally have parents volunteer to provide a meal for the youth on Sunday evenings.  You may use the church kitchen for anything you need.  A “snack dinner” is all we ask.  Easy items are suggested like mac n’ cheese and a veggie, casseroles, pasta, baked potato bar, etc.  The kids get a little tired of pizza, so we try to avoid it, but please do whatever is easiest for you.  I’m only providing slots through January as of right now.  Click here, to sign up to provide a meal.

Remind 101 – Are You Subscribed for Youth Updates?

The Youth have two accounts with Remind 101 so youth and parents can receive short, FREE texts or emails from me for weekly scripture, reminders of activities or changes coming up!  It’s easy to subscribe to and FREE (even if your phone says you may incur charges – fear not!)  There are two different groups (Jr. High and Sr. High).  As you get older you can switch groups, or stop receiving them at any time.  Or if you sign up to receive emails, but then get a cell phone later, you can switch from receiving emails to texts.  It’s easy and I will ALWAYS have the information available to subscribe and unsubscribe on the Youth News Rack in the Narthex.  Green for Jr. High and Purple for Sr. High.
