Youth Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

Merry Christmas everyone...!!  This week will be our last week of youth before the holidays and as such we will be having our annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party!!  We have some great games planned (all with a Christmas twist) as well as some other cool surprises for the night!!
What to bring...  Well, an ugly sweater or classic Christmas PJ's would work...  Also we need to bring a $5.00 gift for our classic gift exchange game!!
We can't wait to see you all out for the night (7-9 at the church)  :)

Living Nativity Youth Night

Hey Everyone... With the Living Nativity happening this weekend and half our youth leaders either being in or supporting the show we will not officially be having "youth" however we will (Sarah and I) be attending the 7:00 show.  We will be meeting at the doors outside the Dalhousie Street entrance until 6:50 or so and then heading down to the square.  We will not be heading back to the church after the show so PARENTS - please be aware the show will end around 7:45 and you will be responsible to pick up your youth at that time!

We do hope you all come out and check out the show... Bring a friend and we look forward to seeing you all Friday night!!
IMPORTANT NOTE - Next week will be our final youth night of 2016 and we will be doing our regular Ugly Sweater Christmas Party.  Please keep an eye on your emails early next week for the rest of the details...

Trampolining.... In the Dark...!!

Hey All you wonderful people... How do you make trampolining better you ask?? how about doing it under BLACK LIGHTS!!  

Here's what you need to know.... We are leaving the church at 7:00 and heading to Kitchener.  We will be returning around 10:00 to the church for pick up (kids will text when we are on our way).  You need to wear something either white or light coloured as it will be dark inside the arena and we don't want anyone getting hurt as it's easy to miss someone.  
Cost is $25.00 / jumper plus HST (we will be jumping from 7:45 or so until we are all ready to leave).  We also recommend you send some money with your kids as they will likely need a drink and / or snack during the evening.
We would really like to know as soon as possible if you are planning to attend so we can hold spots for us all!!
See you Friday.

Hey Everyone,

We have a great night planned for youth on Friday!!  We will be meeting at the church for 7:00 (pick up will be as usual at 9:00 at the church) and heading out to a few different parks close to the church for some "Classic Picnic Games" together.. you know, all the games you play when you go to the FAMILY PICNIC every summer.....  Only, as usual for us, there will be a few twists and turns to contend with :)
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.  Please dress as the weather would indicate and if you don't like remaining in wet clothing I recommend potentially bringing something to change into!!

This week at youth...

Good evening all...

This week we will be meeting together to hang out at the church from 7-9 as usual...  We will be playing some games together while we are there and even more exciting than that, Jacob will be sharing his story (AKA his testimony) for all to hear.  This is going to be a great night of open and honest conversations with one of our newest leaders and you totally shouldn't miss it!!
Also, we are planning to go to Sky Zone the following week so we will have permission forms on Friday to hand out so we can be prepared to go!!  This is going to be another great night together but we need to know numbers so please chat with your folks so we can book a head (COST is approximately $20.00 depending on numbers and should still leave some money for everyone to hit up a snack on the way home)...
See you all Friday!!

Hey, hey, hey.....
Just wanted to send out a few reminders for this week and next....  This week we are going to meet at the church form 7-9 and we will be finalizing all the specifics for our fundraiser as well as trying out some of the challenges to ensure they work :).  We would love to see you all out to help prepare and have some laughs along the way!!
PARENTS - Don't forget that next week is the fundraiser and you should ALL be there to support!  I have attached the poster for the event which will help you with the details and if you can please let us know ASAP if you will be attending that would be great.  We are trying to finalize food for the event so gathering all numbers is very important!
Also, if your child is planning to attend Freshwind we are looking to collect the money for hotel costs no later than Friday March 11.  We are hoping that some of this fee will be covered by the money raised during next weeks event, however we wanted everyone to be aware.  Hotel's…
