Youth Ski Outing
If you are interested in a ski outing &/or Weekend please sign up on the sheet on the Youth bulletin Board. This event will be planned if there is sufficient dedicated interest. If you don't ski, don't worry, this will be a fun weekend away for you too. Again, dedicated interest will determine if this event is planned.

6th Grade Parents!!! Will the 2018 - 30 Hour Famine be the first for your child?
We are sure you have tons of questions, and concerns are normal. To help all kids and families feel at ease with our Famine program we have a special Q&A planned for you to ask & get answers you need to feel confident letting your kid participate with our youth in the 30 Hour Famine. Feb 11th at noon.

Teen Dating & Relationships: You're going on your first date or you have been “Hanging out” with the same someone for ages. Relationships are not ever-always butterflies and rainbows. Get some of those answers you have been looking for about why she does this or he said that. And gain tools for healthy relation ships of the dating kind. On Sunday, February 25 at 2:00 pm meet in the loft for conversation and ways to remain true to yourself and stand up for the relationship you deserve. Communication and connections are important, the good and not so good of dating can be tough to talk about especially when you are starting to find out what you are about.

Mission Trip Updates
