Dear Parents,

See You at the Pole was a GREAT success last Wednesday morning when thousands of Central VA students gathered at their school’s flagpole to pray. I had the privilege of joining our students at Brookville HS this year where close to 40 students, teachers and youth leaders sang prayed for their school. I heard reports of many of our students who were at their schools as well all around Central VA.

Last Wednesday night we had our first HS Breakpoint that focused on a night of worship and prayer. We experienced the four components of prayer; adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication as we moved through stations that provided guidance in the practice and demonstration of these actions. We also enjoyed a great time of worship led by our HS worship band.

This Wednesday Night
5:30-6:30pm – Dinner, Games and Fellowship
6:30-8pm – MS Connect “What’s required in the 10 Commandments?”
HS Connect “I’m saved?now what?” Pt. 1

HS Summer Camp to Snowbird
If your HS student still wants to go to Snowbird next summer, July 23rd-28th, you need to contact Pastor Brian ASAP so I can work on making arrangements with the camp.

Sports Impact
This Thursday, Oct. 5th we will be serving the RHS football team meal. If you are interested in helping me serve this week please contact me by Wednesday afternoon.

This Sunday
The SMC opens at 9am for fellowship and games. The services will begin at 9:30am. MS is studying “The Genesis” and the HS continues its study on the Life of Christ.

HS Outdoor Movie Night – 9-11pm Friday, Oct. 13th
This is for ALL HS students, we will gather on the HHBC soccer field behind the SMC to watch a movie and fellowship. Food and drinks will be available (some free, some for purchase). We NEED your help for set-up, clean-up, registration, security, food prep and food service. We are also looking for 8 portable fire pits to set up so people can gather around them to roast marshmallows and watch the movie while they stay warm. If you would like to help with this event or have a fire pit we can use please respond to this email.

Fall Fun Fest – 4-7pm Sunday, Oct. 29th
We are encouraging all of our MS and HS students to help lead one of the games at Fall Fun Fest. Many of our students enjoy dressing up and walking around at the Fall Fun Fest so we would like to encourage them to set aside 30 min. to 1 hour to help. There will be signup sheets at the Welcome Desk in the SMC for them to commit to a time slot.
