We just sent letters out to families of all those who are newly eligible (9th graders) for Confirmation, which starts in January 2018. Keep a lookout in your metal box for that information.
We also know that sometimes mail gets lost, some take Confirmation who are older than 9th grade, and that our lists aren’t perfect. For that reason, we also post those forms here on the website. You can click on the image below, and you can also find them on the Forms Page.
Tonight at SNL is the annual PhotoHunt for high school! It’s a fun night of exploring, finding clues, and strategizing to become the 2017 Champ.
It’s also Bring-a-Friend Night, so if you bring a friend, both you and the friend get to enter a raffle for other amazing prizes!
It’s fun, it’s amazing, it’s PhotoHunt!
Have leftover Halloween candy? Donate it to the Youth Department!
This year we are once again sending college care packages out, and we fill those packages with your leftover candy. It’s a great way to help care for our college students, letting them know we are thinking of them… and some real mail containing a little sugar is always welcomed by students at school.
Donated candy can be left at either reception desk (north or south) at the church. Just put a label on it that says “Youth Department” and it will find its way to us.
This year we are have a special dinner for each high school grade. We are kicking off the series with our 12th graders, and it is THIS Saturday, Sept. 30 from 6:30-8:30pm at Zach’s house. You can drop by anytime, stay for a long time or a little time, and bring fellow 12th grade friends if you want.
No RSVP is necessary, and Zach’s address is 5401 W 77th St.
Hope to see you there!
If you aren’t in 12th grade, here are the dates for the other grade dinners…
9th – October 21
11th – January 20
10th – April 14
