Even Tropical Storm Michael couldn’t keep our Youth and Children from having a full and awesome October. We hope everyone fared well during that storm. While many lost power and incurred some property damage, our Youth were still able to have a fabulous weekend at Eagle Eyrie.

Our Youth just finishing a Friendship series during our Worship sessions on Sunday evenings. This has really made an impact on how we see ourselves as friends, how we can be better friends, and how we can choose the right friends. This is such a relevant topic for our Youth. We became even better friends as we bonded at Eagle Eyrie when we went for a Youth Retreat the weekend of October 12-14. We had 15 Youth attend, including some of our former Youth who are now college students. When we returned from this, we were really excited to plan and hold our 6th Parent Night Out fundraiser for our Mission Trip to Philly Fuge next summer. WHBC, Learning Center, former Learning Center, and TeamKID parents were signing up for this event as soon as it was announced. The Youth make this evening of dinner, games, crafts, stories, and fun such a spectacular night. They really could run a small company the way they pull this night off. Then we celebrated that great evening with a Youth Halloween Party at our last Youth Worship session of the month, complete with Worship time, dinner, pumpkin carving, and games.

Looking Forward:
Saturday, November 3 – Trip to Green Hand Farm corn maze
Friday, December 7 – Christmas Parent Night Out Fundraiser
Sunday, December 16 – Youth Christmas Party
