This Wednesday!!

Hey everyone,

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 :)

Next Wednesday, we’ll be hanging out in the Youth Room at 5:30, and then going to eat and hear a guest speaker talk about Christian-Muslim relations around 6:30.

On November 5th, Out and About is going to Hearst Castle for the day, so let Tom know if you want to go! Tickets are $35.

Ok, that was long but I hope to see you all very soon!!!!

Second Harvest this Wednesday!

Hey everyone,

This Wednesday (October 19th) we’re meeting at Bethel at 5:15 to go to Second Harvest and do some community service! Bring money for dinner, and make sure to wear CLOSED-TOE SHOES, LONG SLEEVES AND LONG PANTS!!! I promise it’ll be fun, and this is also a good way to partially fulfill a community service hour requirement if you have one. We’ll be back at the church by 9:15 :)

Sunday, we’ll keep watching Luther.

Hope to see you all on Wednesday!


Movie and Pizza Night!!!

Hey everyone,

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!!!

Share Your Story (Wednesday, October 5th)

Hey everyone!

This Wednesday, October 5th, we’ll be meeting up at Bethel and heading to Pieology for dinner around 5:30. We’ll most likely stop at Cream for dessert, so bring as much money as you think you’ll need (no more than $20). When we come back to the church, we’ll be doing something Tom calls “Share Your Story.” Each of us will bring some form of media, like a song, picture, video, app or something else you feel represents an important aspect of yourself. We’ll spend some time catching up, and then share about ourselves and our lives through whatever media we brought.

Hope to see you all there :)

WSYG Info and Dinner This Wednesday!! (the 28th)

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good week so far.

At 5:30 this Wednesday, September 28th, we’ll be taking the Bethel Bus to the El Paseo shopping center in Saratoga for dinner. After dinner, we’ll come back to bethel around 7:15 to talk about the Western States Youth Gathering (bring parents at 7:15 if possible!) WSYG is a super fun event during which Lutheran high schoolers from different churches around the west coast and pacific northwest will come together for about five days at Cal Lutheran and hang out. There will be guest speakers, probably concerts and other live performances, and more stuff we’ll talk about on Wednesday! It’s awesome and if you’re available to attend, I would HIGHLY recommend it :)

Next Wednesday, on October 5th at 5:30, we’ll be getting dinner at Pieology and then going to Cream for dessert, around Main Street Cupertino. That night, we’ll be doing a “Share Your Story” thing, where you can bring any form of media (a song, a picture or painting, a video, etc) to share something meaningful about yourself or your life.

On Saturday October 8th, Bethel Out and About is going to the Fleet Week event in San Francisco. You can hang out at the pier, see the Blue Angels fly and have fun in the city for a day! If you’re interested in going, let Tom know so he can save you a spot.

Hope to see you guys soon!!
