It's THE MOST Wonderful Time of the Year! It's THE MOST Wonderful Time of the Year!
Parents you made it!!!
By the time most of you get to this, you will likely be wiping tears away - whether it be joy or sadness, you are free, you are free!
We are super excited to get the ball rolling with our regular programming! As much fun as we had this summer, weekends just aren't as much fun when we're not hanging on Friday's!
Special shoutout to Logan Johnson who ran such a great summer with the "Midweek Madness" events!
We have some new things to update you on for this Fall 2019 launch!
Tweens (Grade 4-5? 6?)
Josh Thomas is giving leadership to our Tweens again this year, and we are thrilled about this!
Last year we decided to allow our grade 6 students to attend "Youth" as we were still working out exactly what our students needed, as they transitioned between kids ministry and youth group. We found that few grade 6 students were able to assimilate well, and others weren't able to as easily.
We want to serve the whole family well, so this year we are asking that you would consider helping us bolster the student ministry experience, by sending your grade 6's to Tweens on the designated evenings.
If you feel that your student is ready to learn alongside our older students on Friday evenings, we would love to have that conversation with you. Please speak with Pastor Calvin by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tweens will run the 2nd & 4th Friday of each month as noted
Youth (Grade 7-12)
We are kicking off again on Friday, September 13th! SPOOKY!!!
There are a lot of events planned for this year, and keeping you in mind, we have detailed the major ones from September until June on our website!
All of the sign-up forms are available on the recently renovated events page, and will also available in the footer of every email we send to you!
Please visit our page by following this link, or the one in the footer to see these events, add them to your calendar, and to sign-up!
Unfortunately this past year we were unable to make the missions trip happen.
Due to the exchange rate on the Canadian Dollar, we have decided to forego flights and overseas travel for our missions experiences this year.
That said! We have two opportunities in motion right now, and we are awaiting confirmation of dates for both!
LA DREAM Center (Los Angeles, USA)
Our request is being considered to take a team in July between July 5th to July 26th.
This trip will be available to students 15yrs old at the start of the trip, and older.
It will likely be a 7 or 8-day experience. Approx $800-$1000 CAD
The Mustard Seed "Demo Crew" (Edmonton, Canada)
Our request is also being considered to take a team in July between July 5th to July 26th. The date will be determined after we confirm our LA trip so that the dates do not overlap.
This trip will be available to students 13 yrs old at the start of the trip, and older. (We are hoping to allow our 12yr old students, as well)
It will likely be a 5 or 6-day experience. Approx $300-$400 CAD
MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW SOON
That's all for this week's update!
