February 29: Youth Fundraiser Supper
It’s time for another wonderful night together of fine food, great entertainment, and an opportunity for students to serve the adults and earn some money for camps, retreats, and other youth activities. Tickets will be going on sale in the near future so be sure to keep an eye out for them. Also, if you would like to contribute to the evening’s entertainment, don’t hesitate to volunteer!
March 8: Parent meeting
We will be having a quick parent meeting on March 8th right after the service to get updates on family ministry at Hope Free Lutheran Church. This is for all parents with kids ranging from newborn to college age.
April 17-19: FLBC Campus Days
As the bouncy ball of life keeps bumping along, the time for high school graduation is getting closer for each of you. Have you thought about what comes next? For many people, the assumption is going right to college. Is there anything wrong with this path? Nope, God can work in that situation too. However, have you at least considered the option of taking some time after high school to invest not only in an education, but also in a foundation that can help you launch into any vocation. FLBC’s spring campus days is a great way to get a glimpse of what this opportunity is like. Registration will be opening soon.
July 19-23: Mysterious Hope (FLY Beyond)
One of the highlights of the summer, FLY Beyond will be here before you know it. FLY Beyond is a 5 day camp setting that focuses on training students how to practically apply their faith in every day applications including serving in their local congregations. This year, Tim Barnett is coming back for another round of enlightening apologetics and faith strengthening material. Great teachers are lined up for the evening services and Bible studies, and new to this year, an opportunity to process difficult issues together with a panel of leaders. It is going to be a great week!
To get the early bird discount, register by the end of March!!!
Registration and camp schedule is now open at https://www.aflc.org/youth/fly-beyond/
All Year Monday Nights: Youth Group
This year is going to be wonderful! For our Bible content, we will be exploring two amazing Minor Prophet books as well as having regular service projects, apologetics lessons, cultural connections, and of course the regular games and snacks as the cherries on top of an already amazing night.
Youth group is open to students in 6th through 12th grades and runs from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. We meet in the youth room which is upstairs. Also, new to this year, a great leadership opportunity for our High School students. Contact Jordan if you are interested.
Hot Chocolate Fundraiser
Do you want to earn some money in your youth account for the next big youth event? One easy way of doing that is to volunteer to sell hot chocolate during fellowship hour on Sunday mornings. Selling hot chocolate is pretty easy. What you would need to do is follow the following steps: Set up the hot chocolate table, take people’s orders, make the hot chocolate, collect the money, clean up the table in time for Sunday School, and put the supplies/money in Jordan’s office. That’s it!
Sundays are available at a first come-first serve basis. Telling Jordan doesn’t really work since he is bad at writing things down and remembering, so everything is run through the signup genius site. That is available here. Weeks that don’t have people signed up for will go without any selling. Two people seems to work best for the table.
