This weekend we'll be heading up to Maine for our fall retreat! If you've already signed up online, thank you! If not, please do so no later than this evening, as I need to make final transportation arrangements and begin to purchase food and other essentials.
If you haven't signed up yet, you can do so here! Note that I've changed the settings on the event so that you can register without paying online. In the future I'll be sure to enable this for all events for those of you who would rather pay by cash or check.
I've attached the information from the website here for your reference. Please note that I'm changing the departure time evening from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM to help people get here after practices and have dinner before we leave. Also, if you need to come up a little later evening because of a game or other commitment, please let me know ASAP as we will have a vehicle making a later trip and we can coordinate a time for you to come up.
If you have any questions before , just send them my way. It's going to be a great time and I think God's got some great things to say to us! Please try to arrive a little before if you can.
When: We will leave at on Friday, 9/18, and return to church on Sunday, 9/20 at approximately . Please eat dinner before you arrive to leave evening.
Where: Casco, Maine, at the cabin of a church member.
How much: The retreat this year will cost $60. You can pay with a credit card online, with cash or write a check out to Wollaston Church of the Nazarene.
Why should I go: It’s going to be a great weekend to get away and hear from God, and a great weekend to hang out with friends and have some fall fun! There’ll be great services together, football, apple picking, hiking, campfires, and a whole bunch of other fun stuff!
What should I bring: Here’s the list of things to bring. Pack as light as you can but don’t leave anything behind!
Clothes (It might be cool, bring a jacket. I’d recommend bringing older clothes that you’re not necessarily in love with!)
Bible (Don’t forget this)
Flashlight, card games, personal snacks
What not to bring:
Weapons of any kind (knives included)
Things that only exist to annoy other people
*You are permitted to bring your cell phone, although service is spotty. Cell phone use will not be permitted during certain times (services, group activities, etc.), and if students break these rules their phone will be confiscated and returned when we leave for home.
Note: You must have a liability waiver on file with the church in order to attend. These are available attached to this email if you haven't already filled one out.
Here's just a few quick reminders about what's coming up for teens...
On Sunday, September 6th, don't miss Promotion Sunday in the morning for all you incoming 7th graders, and also don't miss the picnic after church!
That evening, come on back for our fall kick-off! You do not want to miss this great night!
Next Sunday, 9/13, new parents and teens can join us at 5:00 for Youth Group Orientation!
Finally, don't forget to sign up for retreat at http://mosaicyouthministry.smartevents.com. Registration closes 9/12!
See you Sunday! You're prayed for this week!
