Weekly Youth Update: 6/2 - 6/8

The Homeland Park youth with celebrate the end of school this Wednesday night with a pizza and game party! We will kick-off at 6:30 and go until 7:30 (during our normal Bible study time). All you need to bring is yourself and a friend if you can!

Next week, June 9-13, our youth will join Southside Baptist Church and other area churches for COLA WARS! This is a fellowship opportunity with other churches to worship Jesus and learn more about Him as we engage in teaching, worship, games, and other fun activities! The event will be from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm each evening, Monday through Friday, June 9-13. On Thursday evening, June 12, wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty (water games)! Dinner is provided.

If you want to attend Cola Wars, meet at the church at 5:30 on Monday (for registration) and have your ride ready at 9:15 at the church to be picked up. On Tuesday through Friday, meet at the church at 5:45 to leave and have your ride ready at 9:15 to be picked up.

Our youth ministry was planning a summer beach retreat to Wilmington, North Carolina, from June 26-29. Sadly, we have to cancel for this year. With some students being out of town and others having responsibilities that will keep them in Anderson on that weekend, the trip was unable work. However, we will have a great weekend in the upstate instead!

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!

If you have any questions, please email me at!
