We’ll, Common Ground kicked off last Monday and we are excited about this season 🙂 Each week, I will post a pdf of the announcements that I hand out to CG’ers. This is an important sheet with the latest up to date info on all things Sr High Youth related. I am also attaching a pdf of the 2017 CG Schedule for you. If you got one last week, there is already one date change :-/ The first time CG sings in church is Sunday, March 19th (not the 12th). The new schedule already has that update.
Please feel free to call or email with comments and questions. My cell is 408-309-9975 and my email is to----@------.net 🙂
This Wednesday, we will be meeting here at Bethel at 5:30 for an exciting evening. We’ll drive over to Fresh Choice to have some dinner, and then we’re going to go shopping for things to put in care packages for our recently-departed youth who are now freshmen in college. It’s going to be loads of fun and we can’t wait to have you come on our little shopping spree with us!
Just a reminder- there is no Common Ground this Monday.
There are still three spots left for our ski trip next weekend!! We’ll be meeting at Bethel at 3 on Friday and we should be back late Sunday afternoon. The trip will cost just $50.

As we approach the season of love what better way to remind us about the people we love in our lives than talk about love…. Did i say love enough times yet? lol This wednesday we will be meeting at 5:30 and heading over to Safeway to pick up our favorite comfort food and chow down at bethel. Later that night we’ll be discussing different aspects of love so definitely stop by for that. The week after that we’ll be going to movies so stay tuned for those deets. The same week we’ll be going on the skii trip to bear valley (we leave on the 20th and come back the 23rd). Hope to see you all soon!!!!!

Helloooooooooooooo everybody! (That references Chris Rose on Intentional Talk, a great show on MLB Network.)
The month of February is JAM PACKED with tons of FUN AND EXCITING EVENTS.
Sunday School is this Sunday as usual at 9:30. Be there because it’s so cool to go there!
On Monday, it is the next COMMON GROUND. We had such a good time seeing you all there and we want to see so many more of you there. It starts at 7:15 and goes to 9:00. COme on down and see what all the fuss is about.
Wednesday, the 13th, Bethel will be having the Ash Wednesday service and we will join them. Before all of that though, we’ll head on out to dinner at the Safeway complex. There you have the options of McDonald’s, that disgusting place called Panda Express (or Panda meat as Tom calls it), the Sandwich Spot, and El Pollo Loco to name a few. Bring $10 for dinner and join us for a great night at Bethel!
High Schoolers, don’t forget to sign up for the ski trip! We’ll head out to Bear Valley on the 21st and return the night of the 24th. The total cost is $95 plus money for lift tickets and food on the road and/or the resort if you so choose. It’s going to be a dashingly good time and you should join us.
Don’t miss out on anything coming up this month. You might regret it so come down and have a good time!
From the youth assistants,
Jonathan, Josh, and Amber

This upcoming wednesday we will be brainstorming about ideas for the year!! We’ll be talking about Wednesday night activities, service projects and discussions to Sunday School topics and deciding whether or not we want to do Common Ground again (cuz, you know, its the most boring event of the year *sarcasm*). So please, calling all high schoolers, EVEN OUR NEWEST CHERUBS, the freshmen. But please only come if you have a brain stuffed full of ideas (that comes with a BIG, FAT JK, cuz my brain’s as empty as the US’s bank account and I will most certainly be there).
This is YOUR program and we need YOU GUYS to help shape it, so PLEASE join me as we plan a most wonderful new year 🙂
More logistical details to come. Stay tuned.
Your lovely youth assistant,
P.S. Make sure to sign up for LABOR DAY RETREAT this weekend, it’ll be a BLAST! Please talk to any of the youth assistants, Tom, or Molly if you have any questions about registration.
