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’ll be continuing the series of talks we’ve attended so far, this time listening to guest speaker Bishop Mark. Dinner will be provided (suggested donation $10), we’ll start around 6:30 and wrap up at 8.
Sunday, we’ll continue last week’s discussion and hand out Superbowl pizzas, and there will be donut holes.
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH is the first meeting of COMMON GROUND!!!! I hope you guys are as excited as I am!!!!!!!!! We’ll meet in the fireside/music rooms at 7:15 and hang out until 9, I encourage all of you to try and make it! If you’ve never been to Common Ground, you don’t really know what it’s like until you come to at least one practice 🙂 See you there!
This Wednesday (the 16th) is game night!! Meet up at Bethel around 5:30 and bring your own dinner, as well as any board games you want to play. We have a few in the youth room but not that many, so if you guys want options then bring games. We should wrap up around 8:15 🙂 I’ll probably send out another text Wednesday to remind everyone. See you all there!!!
Sunday, we’ll be watching more of the movie Luther. I hope you guys are as excited as I am!!!! 🙂
Next Wednesday is the Thanksgiving service, so come to Bethel at 7 and there will be pie. So much pie.
See you soon,
This Wednesday, October 26th, we’ll be discussing the current elections! We’ll meet up at Bethel at 5:15, and head over to Main Street Cupertino for dinner. Our options include Lyfe Kitchen, Oren’s Hummus and Pieology, as well as others, so bring money for food (you won’t need more than $20). Afterward, we’ll come back to Bethel for our discussion and wrap up around 8:30 🙂
This Sunday, try to attend the first service so we can congratulate some of the ninth graders on being confirmed!! After the service we’ll be hanging out in the youth room and eating food, so come if you can 🙂

This Wednesday the 12th we’ll be watching a movie and eating pizza at Bethel at 5:30! I’m bringing the pizza, so don’t worry about money for dinner but maybe bring a drink if you want. If you have a movie you want to watch, bring it and we’ll vote on one!! I’ll also bring a few DVDs so we’ll have a bunch to choose from. Also, people expressed interest in making blankets (the kind where you tie knots around the edges and they’re very soft n nice) so you’ll have the option to do that!! If you want to make a blanket, stop by Joann Fabrics and check out the fleece, which is SUPER SOFT! It’s not too expensive but try to print out some coupons before you go, you can almost always find coupons online. I would suggest one patterned sheet for the top and a solid for the bottom, but you can make it one layer or do something else if you want. Dimension-wise, I would also suggest 2 yards of each fabric you want to use, just make sure your two pieces are the same size and that the width is the same (it’ll say on the cardboard piece the fabric is on). Bring your own fabric and maybe a pair of scissors, and we’ll make our blankets together!!! If you don’t want to make a blanket that’s totally fine, come hang out with us anyway 🙂 I hope you’re as excited as I am!!!
Sunday, the Luther movie continues.
Next Wednesday, we’ll be going to dinner (so bring $) and to Second Harvest to volunteer. Make sure to wear long pants and sleeves, as well as closed-toe shoes. Come to Bethel at 5:15, and we’ll be back by 9 pm! Hope to see you there!!!

As many of you know we will be in mexico for the next few days so we will be not meeting on Wednesday the 16th. Also since we will be in mexico this sunday we wont be having official sunday school but rather spending time in torvend experiencing the cedar meal. If you’re in town I highly recommend going and trying the different food 🙂 also last friendly reminder we will not be having common ground practice on the 14th but we will need all hands on deck for prep work for Easter breakfast on Saturday the 19th as well as practicing for the sunrise service. Anyways we hope everyone has a fantastic break or just week in general 🙂 the following Wednesday the 23rd we will be hitting up the movies and watching Noah so mark your calendar for that. .. feel free to contact tom or one of the youth assistants if you have anymore questions or need details.
