Western States Youth Gathering – Sign up Countdown

Hello Bethel Peeps,

I want to let you know that on Wednesday, September 28th we will give the scoop and get the ball rolling for the Western States Youth Gathering.  At 5:30pm we will head to dinner at the El Paseo Shopping Center (can you say, Panda, Rubio’s, Melt, Veggie Grill …).  We will be back at Bethel at 7:15 to talk about this coming year’s Western States Youth Gathering

We will share details about the event, talk about fundraising, and sign you up.  The theme is “Dream Big” which came out of a brainstorm session where I lifted up many of the things we do here at Bethel :-)  Check out the event website at wsyg.com.  All 9th – 12th graders are encouraged to attend.  You won’t be sorry :-)

Please bring your parents and a check for $100 to get the ball rolling.  Registration opens on Monday, October 3rd and the earlier we sign up, the better rooming we get.  If you can’t make it that night, please let me know so I can hook you up!  My email is to----@------.net and you can always call/text me at 408-309-9975.

Peace, Tom

Mexico & Mexican

Hola amigos,

This Wednesday night at 5:30pm we will be meeting here at Bethel before going to eat a delicious meal at El Amigo Burrito.  Bring your parents, because when we get back around 7pm, we will have our Mission to Mexico annual meeting for both parents and yourselves. We will talk about the trip which will be from April 9th to the 13th.  We’ll do our best to answer all your questions and have a great time. Even if you do not think you will be able to go, you should still have stop by and have dinner with us.  Can’t wait to see you there!

Also a friendly reminder :) that we have common ground tomorrow at 7:15pm.

Our kick off retreat for Common Ground is this coming weekend March 4-5th.  More info will be on the handout that you will receive at common ground tomorrow as well as on our website, but in short, you will need $35 to cover expenses.  We will meet at Bethel on Friday evening.

We cannot wait to see you at all of our events, and feel free to contact us if  you have any comments or concerns.

Lots of love,

your youth assistants <3

 

Fresh Choice & Care Packages

Hey youth!

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. We hope you can come! Sign ups are in the youth room, or feel free to contact a youth assistant if you want to go or need more information.

Thanks so much! We hope to see you all soon!

Lots of Love,

the assistants
