Tonight is a special Common Ground night in that parents are invited to come and check out what we do and get the scoop for the 2017 CG Season. I’ll be handing out Info Packets and answering lots of questions. Also, here’s the announcement sheet for tonight. Lots of important stuff 🙂 Feel free to call me at 408-309-9975 or email me at to----@------.net with any questions.
Here is the announcement page for tonight. Special note is the Retreat this weekend, the Mission to Mexico Meeting next Sunday morning, and the CG Parent night next Monday. Make sure to put all of these on your calendar too.
Tonight (Monday) there’s Common Ground practice from 7:15 to 9 in the music room. Hope to see ya there!
ALSO, this Friday night (March 3rd) is the Common Ground kickoff retreat!! It starts at 7:15 Friday night and ends at 4:30 pm on Saturday afternoon (not morning, oopsie). Cost is $35, cash or checks payable to Bethel.
We will be going to dinner down the street (Pollo Loco, The Sandwich Spot, Starbucks, etc) and then to the Ash Wednesday Service after. Bring $10 for food.
This Wednesday, February 15th, we’re going to second harvest!! Meet up at Bethel around 5:15, MAKE SURE you wear LONG SLEEVES, LONG PANTS and CLOSED-TOE shoes!!!!! We’ll get food after so bring $15, and we should be back at Bethel around 9. This is a good way to give back to our community, and to knock out any community service hours you might have to do! Hope to see you there.
There will be no Common Ground meeting on Monday due to the holiday.
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 🙂

I have one cool addition: Our Bethel School Principal, Dawn and her boys will be joining us for dinner at El Paseo 🙂 Dawn will also be with us for our discussion and share what it is like to transplant from Chicago and to be a bi-racial leader in our community. She is a wonderful person with a great heart and story. Make sure to join us this Wednesday.
