Activity Tonight: Tonight at 5 p.m. we will meet at the ACU Intramural field to play some flag football together! Afterwards, we will go back to the Youth Center to partake in a GIANT sandwich together before finishing the night with a devo. If you are a parent and can help by coming to play football or getting dinner set up, please talk to Jason. We will finish at 7:30 p.m. at the Youth Center.
Wednesday Night Singing This Week: On Wednesday, we will take a break from our split Huddles to join the rest of the church as we learn some more new(er) songs together. We will meet from 7-8 p.m. in the Family Room, and then afterwards, the girls and the guys are invited for basketball until 8:45 p.m. in the MAC.
Getaway Day–Nov. 6: So, on Sunday, Nov. 6 (I mistakenly wrote Saturday last week), we will have a Getaway Day as a group to go and do an all-day ropes course and other fun activities at Butman Methodist Camp. We will also spend some time in prayer and worship around a camp fire. We will leave on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. and come back that evening at 9 p.m. It will have a retreat feel to it,
but it will not carry the extra cost or the extra time or Friday-night scheduling conflicts of a full retreat. So make plans to spend the day with us as we grow closer together and closer in our relationship with God. The cost for the retreat is $10 if you can manage it, or any donation. The Fall semester is so busy with football, band, volleyball and then basketball followed by Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! In addition to all of that we have the terrific (and inexpensive) Encounter LE just before Thanksgiving (more on that below) that we want to prioritize and have everybody attend. So, adding a Fall retreat each year is difficult to squeeze in. So, we have decided to try a Spring retreat this year while still doing something for our own group during the Fall.
Encounter LE at LCU, Nov. 18-20: I want everybody to go with us to Lubbock for this one! For the third year, LCU is hosting the weekend retreat called Encounter LE. LCU will be providing all the food, keynote speakers, powerful worship experiences and entertainment, including brining in the Christian band Family Force 5. It’s gonna be terrific! Invite a friend to join us, but not if their church is already going. I also need some adult volunteers. Paperwork is on the Youth Center Desk and is due on Sunday, Oct. 30. The cost of $20 for transportation and hotel costs. That’s pretty cheap for a weekend of awesome! So, let’s go!
