Board Game/Card Game Survey & Church Game Day
On Aug. 7th we’ll be taking a survey from church members after services about what their favorite board or card game is to play. Then we will have sign ups on August 14th and 21st for Church Game Day that the youth will be hosting on the afternoon of August 28th in place of youth group.
Ropes Course Team & Faith Building
On September 18 & 25 we will be team building by doing a ropes course (low and high courses) to grow closer spiritually through trust and support.We ask you to pay $20, which is half of the cost. Sign up in the youth room on the clipboard on the chalk board. We would love for EVERY youth to participate so we can really get to know and trust each other as a group. I will definitely need some parent drivers who are welcome to stay and help/participate. The ropes course is in Larkspur. We will meet at the church at 11:45, for a 12 departure. Expectation is to return to the church around 5. Students will call parents on the way back for a more accurate pick up time.

Are you kids sometimes grounded from their phones? To keep up with youth group changes, Subscribe!
Are your kids sometimes grounded from their phones or electronics? I TOTALLY understand. So, would you mind subscribing to Remind to receive my reminders and updates? It’s fairly simple, and I really don’t send out too many notices. I’ve just had students miss some time changes, etc. because they didn’t have their phones…. So parents, to keep up with Youth Group subscribe:
