Hello Everyone! Next week we are going to have a normal Youth Group night from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm. We will be talking about Pride. Next week January 20th we will talk about Greed.
There are two things I would like for you to keep on your radar:
1. Serve- If you would like to go on serve this year we need a $70 deposit because of the high exchange rate. It is being held in Whitsinville Massachusetts on July 9-16th 2015. I hear the speaker is amazing! Cost is $400 per person because of the bad exchange rate. However there will be an opportunity to raise money through a fundraiser. And there is a possibility of the youth group subsidizing it further. If you would like to go I need you $70 deposit by February 18th 2015 so we can get the early bird rate. For more info about the trip here is the link: https://www.youthunlimited.org/serve/site-locations/whitinsville-massachusetts/
2. On March 4, 5, and 6 we will be having our annual winter retreat. Our speaker will be Pete Olsen who is the head of the Tools program which is a program in Toronto that equips teens to serve their communities. Our worship team will be Redeemer's Alpha worship team. This year it will be held at the church so we can have an opportunity to put into action what we will learn about that weekend: Reaching out to the hurt, lost, downtrodden and lonely. As a result the fee for the event has dropped to $20 per person. You must be registered with Pastor Bart by February 24th.
