End of Semester Updates



LOTS (and lots) of stuff going on, so STICK with me through this post.

Senior Adult Game Night

This Friday (May 13th) we will be joining with the senior adults for their game night (be prepared for a lot of Rook). This is one event we are particularly excited about. Our hope is that events like this will be a good opportunity for students to engage with older members of the congregation they might not have an opportunity to otherwise.

Also, for those wishing to come, the seniors have requested that we bring snacks and soda (in individual cans) with us to the event.

Sunday, May 15th

We have two Youth events and a final payment for camp coming up THIS Sunday.


During the 9am service we will be recognizing our graduating seniors.


Immediately after the second service we will be hosting a short parents meeting in the Youth room. During the meeting we will be going over the upcoming summer calendar, and would love to answer any questions you guys might have about camp or upcoming events.

Third – CAMP

Also, as a reminder, final payment on camps are due May 15th, as well.

Worship Team Interest Meeting

Following BFG (that’s what the kids call Sunday School these days) on Sunday, May 22nd, we will be having a Worship Team interest meeting at 12. It shouldn’t take too long, but we want to be able to begin to organize a team for the Summer Youth Worship Nights.

So, students, if you’re interested in serving in this way, please come! Parents, we’d love to have you, too.

Kart Kountry

May 28th we will be going to Kart Kountry!

We will meet up at the church around noon. Departure time will be 12:00pm and we will return around 4pm. Tickets will need to be purchased at Kart Kountry; you can find additional information about pricing here on the website (

We are offering a discount for the first 25 people to sign up: $6 for 2 tickets. Just email Paul or Drew letting us know your coming.

Parents, please come!

We want you to school your kids in racing!

If you have any questions feel free to email us and we will be happy to get back with you.


That’s all, folks.

Contact Drew or myself if you have any questions at and

Thanks so much for you engagement and participation in this ministry.

Kart Kountry Fun



Reminder for everyone to mark your calendars for our end of the semester Kart Kountry outing on May 28th.

Departure time from the church is at 12:00pm, and we’ll be getting back to the church around 4:00pm.

Rumor has it that Drew has been visualizing the finish line in preparation for the day so don’t be afraid of a little bumping.

Parents, we would love to have you!

Come hang out and beat your children in various games and races.

April Camp Information Update



A few updates for camp this month.

1) Crossings Information Packets

Crossings has sent out a great information packet for parents and guardians laying out what you need to know about camp, get done for camp, and what you can expect for your student from camp. We highly recommend that you download and read this packet ASAP, and let Drew or Paul know if you have any more questions.

Click here to download the information packet:

2016 Crossings Parents and Guardian Info Packet

2) Don’t forget to register your student for their POIs!

If you don’t they will probably be decorating a cake everyday, and that will make them very sad. You can register your student at the link below:

Register your student with Crossings

3) Don’t forget to fill out a medical release form!

You can register your student at the same link that you register your student for their POIs. Here’s that link again:

Register your student with Crossings

4) Payments can be made via check to Drew or through this form:

Pay for camp

5) There’s still time to sign up your student for camp!

If you want your student to build closer relationships with other students their age in the church, then camp is a great thing for them to go to.

If you want your student to be able to take a break from TV, their phone, Snapchat, Instagram, video games, etc., then camp is a great thing for them to go to.

If you want your student to be able to spend focused time studying God’s Word and hearing the Gospel preached and taught, then camp is a great thing for them to go to.

We want to encourage you that if you’re on the fence about sending your son or daughter to camp, to send them. It has been a formative experience for many in their spiritual lives, and it could be so for your student. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to Drew, Paul, or Philip Brown.

You can register your student for camp at the link below:

Register your student for camp
