I hope all is well. Here's your update on youth ministry for this week,
We had a great time last night as the Early Youthers joined us. We played some games, came up with some hilarious skits, sang some songs, and heard a message from Pastor Bev about choices. Thanks for coming out and if you weren't able to, come on next week!
Next Sunday night, August 30th, come from 6:00-9:00 PM at the Eckardt house for our last pool party of the summer! Bring your bathing suit, a towel, and a snack to share (girls bring a salty snack, boys bring a sweet snack). The Eckardt's house is at 61 Forest St, Milton, Massachusetts 02186. If you need a ride there, we can most likely arrange a carpool or someone can pick you up at the church, just let me know.
Sunday, September 6th is our promotion Sunday and our Youth Group Kick-off for the fall! On Sunday morning, incoming 7th graders will join us for Sunday School for the first time, and after church there's an all church picnic on the grounds. Then, that evening from 6:00-8:00 we have our kick-off for youth group with games, prizes, special guests, and more. Don't miss it! There's a special prize for the student that brings the most friends.
Don't forget about our Youth Group Orientation on 9/13 from 5:00-6:00 (before youth group). Parents and new teens are invited to come for an hour and hear about what to expect throughout the year, how they can be involved, and some policy information as well.
Fall Retreat! Our retreat is happening September 18-20. Sign up online at http://mosaicyouthministry.smartevents.com. If you have questions about this, let me know. Registration closes Sunday, September 13th.
2015-2016 Release Form - If you haven't filled out a youth group health and permission form for this coming year, please take a few minutes and do so today. Drop it off in the black box in the youth room the next time you're at church! I need a current form on file for students to participate in off-campus events (like retreat!). It's attached to this email and needs to be signed by both parent and teen.
That's all for now. If you've received a copy of your fall sports schedule, please forward one on to me so I can try to come see you tear up the field or court, or whatever surface you're playing on. I've also attached the fall newsletter just in case you missed it.
I hope you're doing well. A few quick things. (I know some of you haven't officially joined the youth group yet, but I wanted to get this information to you now.)
1. Don't forget to sign up for Six Flags! You MUST do so by tomorrow night (Wednesday) if you are going!
2. Registration for our fall retreat on 9/18-20 is now available! You can sign up online here.
3. Parents meeting on Sunday after service (only for current parents of students, incoming 7th graders' parents need not attend).
Attached to this post is a fall newsletter for youth group activities and programming. Please read over it when you get a chance! I'll be sending out these publications about once a quarter from now on.
You are prayed for this week! Sign up for Six Flags! See you Sunday!
