POP UP SUNDAY

This Sunday we are inviting all the youth (including the new 6th graders) to sit together near the front of the Sanctuary. Near the end of the service, Pastor Mike and I will acknowledge our new 6th graders and say a prayer over all the youth and their upcoming year. After that, the entire youth group will be invited to leave the Sanctuary and walk up the student center together before the rest of the congregation is dismissed.

Once at the student center, we will be having a celebration with food and games along with a devotion. This will be a great first Sunday in youth and we are rolling out the red carpet to make sure everyone feels welcome. We will dismiss at 12:15.

AUGUST 14

MIDDLE SCHOOL MIXER

All sixth through eighth graders are invited to a Middle School kick-off event to mix it up! After worship, they will head to the Student Center with all the youth for pizza. Then leave around 11:30 a.m. for Bowlero where they will bowl and play games for 2 hours. They will arrive back at the Student Center at 2:30 p.m. for pick up.

The cost is $25 and includes pizza, games, and snacks at Bowlero.
REGISTER HERE

**While your middle schoolers are mixing, stop by the classroom across from the church office for a parent remix. There is interest in creating a new Sunday School at the 11 o’clock hour for parents of teenagers. The 14th will be a social event – lunch provided – with the official kick-off on August 21. Contact Chris and Karen Carrollton for more information.
