Youth Group Newsletter - 2018-0417 - P Brian

Greetings, in the name of Jesus Christ!

I hope all of your weeks are going well.

As a reminder, Sunday services start at 11:45 am. Please do your best to come on time and send your children on time. In addition, please have your children stay until 1:30 pm, which is the end of our small group time. Some students are not attending SG's; please connect with your SG leader (see Item IV below) to make sure your child is part of a Small Group.
Below are this week's announcements. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I. Saturday/Wednesday DT

Middle School DT will take place this Wednesday (4/18) as usual, 7:30 pm -9:00 pm.

This Saturday 4/21, we will have a special Question, Discussion, and Answer time with the students, taking a look at the tough questions Christians face in culture. This will also serve as a response to the TV Next Conference. Parents and friends are most welcome!


II. Joint Praise Night//2nd Service Outing Event

Our youth group has been invited to a Joint Praise Night happening on Friday, April 27th, at the New Life Church in Fremont. The Youth/EM pastor there is pastor Mike Kim.

This will also double as our very first 2nd Service Outing Event. It will be great to hang out together, as we are a small service. It would be GREAT to have many of our 2nd service students participate. Please send your children!

Address: 4130 Technology Dr, Fremont, CA.
Event: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Please register your child in the below address. You can drop off/pick up there, or sign up for rides below.

III. Summer Missions

Deadline for missions is fast approaching. Please turn in your forms by THIS SUNDAY, April 22.

In addition, we will have our first and only group fundraising event on the 29th of April (Sunday). Involvement is required. We will be meeting on Saturday, 4/28, to prepare (10 am - 3:30 pm), and will be serving on Sunday, 4/29, from 7 am to 3:30 pm. Non-involvement, depending on reason, will result AT LEAST in inability to partake in financial aid raised by the bazaar, or, in extreme cases, will result in exclusion from summer missions. For parents who are concerned about mission costs, this fundraiser should help cover a bulk of the funds. Praise the Lord !
