February 13th Common Ground Announcements

Hi Friends,

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 🙂

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
