The summer retreat is this week! Please turn in your waiver form OR permission slip asap. You cannot attend the retreat without this. If you need another form, please see Theresa. Please arrive at North Loop on 6/20 no later than 2pm. We will be returning to North Loop on 6/24 by 6pm.  If you need financial assistance, please talk to Ben or Elise.

(Parents - you should have received my earlier email with all summer related info, including the retreat. And we sent hard copies home with your students.  If you still need these, please email me. Teachers are working hard to prepare for the retreat.  Please pray for us that it be a wonderful time in God's word, creation and with one another. We'll send a separate email later this week with final numbers of students going. Currently however, we have total of 13 teachers and 5 adults serving as the praise band for the retreat.  We are all looking forward to this time together!)

6/27-6/28 44 Days of Vision, Week1: World Vision's 30 Hour Famine and food bank

Our first service event is participating in World Vision's 30 Hour famine. We will get together on  Fri, 6/27th at 7pm and sleepover at teachers’ homes.  On Sat, we will be volunteering at a local food bank. Our Saturday program ends at 5pm.  If you have not picked up a World Vision packet, please be sure to pick one up on Sunday after service in the Willard courtyard.

Water Bottles

To reduce garbage as well as cost, please carry your own water bottles to events and gatherings at church. If everyone does it, it can make a huge difference.
