As we begin our summer schedule it gives an opportunity for those going into 6th grade to begin attending youth group as well. We would love to encourage any of our new students to start attending.
I’ve included in this mailing a copy of the 2016-17 release form. We ask for everyone who is going to be a part of our upcoming school year to complete this form. It is also required for those doing any of our off campus events this summer.
Most of our ongoing youth group communications happen via email, social media and via a text messaging service called MOZEO. If you are not a part of any of those and you would like to be, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you to those lists.
Before I name details about our summer schedule I have a few opportunities for parents to help chaperone this summer. If you are interested in any of these, please let me know
