I hope your 2019 is off to a great start. Below are some major events to mark on your calendars this spring:
Starving to Serve is our annual fundraiser where we ask our students to go without food for 30 hours to raise awareness and money to help stop world hunger. The money we raise primarily goes to Outside the Bowl, a soup-kitchen ministry that aims to nourish children physically and spiritually. There are a couple other organizations we support that will benefit from the money raised as well. Last year’s fundraising raised over $113,000! Fundraising will begin the weekend after Camp United and all the money will be due at our Starving to Serve Celebration on Friday, March 29 where we will all pig out on a burrito feast at midnight after having starved for 30 hours. This is a date change than previously mentioned. Click here to find out more.
Small Group Night Out is going to be March 19. Every Spring, we cancel normal TNL and have our small groups meet outside of church to do something fun and to bond as a group! Past events have included going to the movies, going bowling, shopping, jumping at Get Air, playing at Boomers, and so much more. Make sure you get in a small group today so you don't miss out! Details will be provided the closer we get to the event.
The Salt Retreat for our 8th grade leadership team is coming quicker than we realize on April 5-7. This reward trip will include great memories, food, fun, devotion, worship, and many surprises in the town of Big Bear. Taylor sent out an email with all the details. Email him if you didn’t receive that email. Your $85 payment and completed Activity Forms are due by March 26. Register today here.
The Light Retreat for our 7th grade leadership team is May 10-11. This retreat will conclude our Light program with a fun service project, food, a sleepover at the church, and more activities. Cost and further details are TBA.
Leadership Meetings continue on this Spring. For a complete schedule of when our March, April, and May meetings are, click here. Light will end this May and Salt will end this June with our Salt Ceremony. Details for our Salt Ceremony will be emailed out in the next couple months.
Our JH78 App is coming. Stay tuned for it to be released on the App Store and Google Play store later this month. It will feature sermons, an easy and clean looking calendar, event registration, JH78TV and more. Make sure you download it once it is released!
