Weekly Youth Update: 6/16 - 6/22

 
Last week was an incredible time for the Homeland Park youth at COLA WARS! We were able to relax and hang out over games like “Ultimate Cantaloupe” (Ultimate Frisbee with cantaloupes) and dodgeball. The highlight of the week was the time of worship and teaching. We were blessed to hear from other area youth ministers as they taught from the book of James. They continually pointed us to the grace of God and His work through Jesus to save sinners! A student from one of the attending churches professed faith early in the week and we are excited to see the other ways God will use COLA WARS for those who attended!

This week is Vacation Bible School at Homeland Park Baptist Church. Going through Thursday, children ages 3 through fifth grade will be participating in a week of excitement, fun, and teaching from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm each night. The youth are volunteering each night during this time period. If you’re a youth and want to help out, please arrive at 5:45 each night.

June 20, from 6:00-7:00 pm in the Family Life Center, we will host a thank-you dinner for any youth who volunteer for VBS.

Saturday, June 28, the Homeland Park youth will head to Gravitopia in Greenville for a Saturday of high energy entertainment. Our scheduled time will be at 10:30 AM and last one hour. Afterwards, we will go to Pizza Buffet for lunch! The total cost for the day will be $25. Please let me know by Wednesday, June 18, if you plan to attend. I will order the tickets by Thursday and I need a definite number by Wednesday!
