Weekly Youth Update: 11/11-11/17

This week is the big week for our ENGAGE student retreat! We are really excited for the weekend and for what God will do while we are at Camp Longridge!

This Wednesday night, we are having a parent/student meeting for any student going on the retreat at 6:00 PM. Here, we will fill out permission and medical release forms, go over the weekend schedule and rules for the weekend, and answer questions. In order for your student to attend, you must come to the meeting and sign the required forms. Unless a parent attends with their student and the required forms are signed, a student will not be allowed to attend!

We will have our regular Wednesday night Bible study after the meeting, starting at 6:30 and finish around 7:30.

Friday, we will meet at the church at 4:00 to prepare to leave for the retreat. We will drive over to Varennes Heights Baptist Church and leave with them by 4:30. We should arrive back by 4:00 on Sunday.

Sunday night, during our normal time for Sunday evening worship, we are gathering at Homeland Park Baptist Church for the South Anderson Fellowship of Churches Thanksgiving Service. We hope to see you there!

Feel free to email me at if you have any questions!
