August is promotion month, and some of our elementary kids will be moving up into the youth group. On Sunday, August 28th, we’ll be promoting a couple of students from the younger elementary classes into the youth group. In order to welcome them properly, we are going to be having a special activity on Saturday, August 27th, to introduce them to the rest of the youth group. We’re going to call it our End of Summer Bonfire Bash! We will be heading over to the home of the David Jones’ Family for a night filled with food, fun, and lots of activity around the fire! I’d recommend bringing some dark clothes (for games) that you don’t mind getting smelly and dirty around the bonfire. Festivities will start at 5:30pm and be finished at 9:00pm. We will meet at the Youth Center at 5:30pm to head to the Jones’ home. Parents can pick their teens up at 9pm at the Youth Center. All teenagers are welcome to attend! We hope to see you there!

Teens Back From Summer Camp In Michigan

After a brilliant 5 days of living in tents in the wilderness of Frankfort, MI, our teens made in home safely to enjoy their nice, warm beds. Talk to any of the teens and they’ll tell you how challenging and adventurous this unique camping experience was for them. I know the teens will truly miss all of the excitement and fun that is summer camp, but hopefully they won’t forget the challenges made from God’s Word that can have a profound effect on their life. Check out the short video below to see a little glimpse of what summer camp was like!
