Alright, we're going to try updating some info here!

As I told you guys, I'm horrible with trying to get into a consistent habit of doing things online. But, I really want to try. So, I thought that we'd start with something easy like information about upcoming events that I'd really like to see as many teens as possible get involved with.

First up- This Sunday is Rake-n-Run (Nov. 15)
What you need to know- we'll eat lunch at church following worship. One of the life groups is preparing and cleaning up the meal for us. We'd like to have the teens bring $3 to help pay for the food. Each student should bring a rake (and maybe an extra if you have one) and his/her own gloves. We'll rake after lunch and return to the building about 4:00.

Next- "Stay Treat" (Nov. 20-21).
Here's the scoop- I think this is going to be a lot of fun and a great opportunity for our kids to worship in some unique ways without having to leave Indianapolis or spend lots and lots of money.

Cost- $20 (will cover everything except for a fast food lunch on Saturday).

6:30 PM Friday- Meet up @ Teen Center
That evening we're going to go play games and hang out at Jillian's downtown and then return to the church about 9:30 for worship to focus for the rest of the weekend.

10:30- Go to host home (split up in groups of 5-8) and have some small group time, fellowship, and sleep.

10:00 AM Saturday- Meet at the building for a day of worship, fellowship, and some play.
8:00 PM- Show videos that the teens will have made Saturday morning...which I'd encourage you to come be a part of.
8:30 PM- Wrap up and head home.

Let me know if you have any questions, but I hope you'll really encourage your teen(s) to participate!!! Even if they can't come to the whole thing, I hope they'll come to as much as possible.

Winterfest sign-ups.
Our early bird sign-up is through November 29th. Cost until that date is $100. We have fliers available in the Teen Center with more information specific for our group.

check out for more info on what Winterfest is all about.

Liability Forms!

We really need to get liability forms turned in with all the activities coming up. I have several teens that I don't have on file. It only takes a minute and it protects your teen in case of emergency.

Here a link to a printable form: Medical Liability Form.
