Dear Parents,

On Wednesday nights this summer we are trying to create an opportunity for fellowship and community with a bunch of fun activities. Most of these events are free and we are always encouraging the students to participate but to also be people bringers by inviting their friends. Please encourage your student to join the fun this summer.

This Wednesday Night – 6-8pm Wednesday, June 14th
Middle School will have a movie night in the MS room with FREE drinks and popcorn.
High School will be going to Mr. Goodies for a time of ice cream and hanging out. There is no cost to attend but bring money if you want to get something to eat or drink. Feel free to invite your friends to join us for another time of fun and relationship building.
