Looking for a way to go to the next level with your faith? How about getting involved in a Grow Group?!? We are looking for people interested in leadership to host or facilitate these groups. All materials will be provided. This would put YOU in the driver’s seat to choose the meeting time and other details of your group. If this is something you want in on, please let us know this week so we can get group sign-ups out this Sunday!
Beginning this January Wednesdays are going to be awesome! The second Wednesday of each month we will have open gym at Lost Creek! We will offer a variety of options like basketball, dodgeball, soccer, and Joshua Muehlbauer’s favorite, NERF War! The fourth Wednesday of each month we will set up the inflatables! These will also serve as an opportunity for the worship team to practice!
Everyone is welcome! However, this is not childcare service. You will need to supervise your children if they are elementary age or younger.
We will need 4 people to help with setup and tear down of inflatables each night (Jan 28, Feb 25, Mar 25, & Apr 22). Let us know what day and time you can help!
This is a great chance to invite friends, coworkers, and neighbors!!! Activities will begin at 6:00 pm and wrap up at 7:30 pm.
Here are a few ideas to help you get started: tape a bag of quarters to a machine at the laundry mat, shovel your neighbors driveway, pay for someone’s coffee behind you, leave a bigger tip, give a treat to your postman, give another driver your parking spot, slip some money to someone you know is struggling, bring cookies to an older neighbor, slip A candy bar into the hand if a salvation army bell ringer. The Possibilities are endless!
December 7th we will have a Connexion Youth Christmas Party @ the YFC facility. Feel encouraged to bring Ugly Christmas sweaters and festive Christmas goodies to share; i.e. almost anything dipped in almond bark, brownies, cookies, egg nog, hot chocolate, or cider, This will be our last youth meeting until after the new year. Hope to see you there!
