Dear Parents,

I hope you all have a happy Independence Day this Wednesday. As such there will be youth services tomorrow night. I hope we will see you all again on Sunday.

This Wednesday
Church-wide cookout at the ministry land beginning at 6pm.

Vacation Bible School – 5:30-9pm Monday-Friday, July 9th-13th.
The Student Ministry has the privilege again to lead the 6th grade VBS. Eight of our HS students will be assisting the Youth staff again this year as well as many others working in all the different areas of VBS. Last year there were about 70 teenagers helping with VBS.
Very Important: For those students who are helping us we will have lunch, prep and training from 12:30-5:30pm THIS Sunday, July 8th in the SMC. Come prepared to work and learn how you will be assisting us during VBS.

Rainbow Forest Pool – 5:30-8:30pm Wednesday, July 18th
We will be heading to Rainbow Forest Pool with all the MS and HS students. The cost is $5 for pool entry. Girls will need to wear a dark t-shirt over their swimsuit. Everyone needs a towel. Sign up online at hhbc.net/thevine “events”

MS Summer Camp Student Life – 7:30am Mon. July 23rd – 5pm Fri. July 27th
Most of you were at the information meeting back in May but you may still have some questions. Please feel free to contact Jackson at jricharson@hhbc.net <mailto:jricharson@hhbc.net> to ask questions. Everyone will need to bring their luggage and sleeping bags to the SMC at 6pm Sunday, July 22nd so we can load it in the trailer and save time on Monday morning. We will meet at 7:30am Monday, July 23rd to pray, load, and leave by 8am to arrive on time at camp. When you arrive on Monday, come dressed (no pajamas) since we will stop at the mall in Ashville to eat and then straight on to camp. Remember to have some cash in your pocket to purchase your lunch on the way and to save some money for lunch on the way home.
