It's been awhile since my last update but with school back in swing and our Fall activities just around the corner, I thought I'd get the updates rolling again.
Super Block Party
I hope you are planning to attend our block party festivities on this Saturday, Aug 15th to culminate our Faithful at 5o Celebration. There will be something there for everyone. Great food, kids games, a dunk tank and a Cake Walk to help us raise money for our Chile Mission Trip, Hot Air Balloon Rides and a concert on the lawn. Come and bring friends! Festivities run for 4 to 8 PM. See you there.
Wet n Wild ABY Kick Off
Youth need to plan to join for our ABY kick off on Aug 23rd from 3-6 pm. It will be an outdoor event with the Slip n Slide along with other water games and fun. We will also preview what's to come for the year in Youth/ABY activities. Dinner will be served so come enjoy the day and bring a friend!
Starting in September the entire church is taking part in a 7 week series called Transformed. This is a curriculum/program put together by Rick Warren and Saddleback Resources to help us focus on 7 key areas of our life that God calls us to be in the process allowing Him to transform in our lives. Youth Sunday School/ABY, Children's Church and Elementary Sunday School classes will also focus their lessons on the Transformed theme giving families a chance to experience Transformed together.
Youth will have their own small group led by Reilly Jones at their home after worship from 11 am to 1 pm. This will be both our ABY and Sunday School gathering time and a snack lunch will be served. We really want to encourage as many youth as possible to get involved. We will caravan the youth from church to the Jones house after worship. We will also provide a ride for anyone needing a way home after the gathering. The small groups will will run from Sept 13 - Oct 25th.
Parents are encouraged to participate in a Transformed small group as well. See the welcome center in the Narthex for possible small groups to join.
