S U N D A Y :
PLEASE READ THESE IMPORTANT DETAILS

We truly need ALL youth in the parking lot at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday morning! No excuses ;)

The youth will meet at the church at 7:45 (sharp!) and will divide into four cars (driven by youth parents, Rebecca Sandulli or Ethan Kiburtz, Nick Penze, Nathan Florence, and me) to surprise the incoming 7th graders (Noah, Andy, AJ, Sam, Sam, Thomas, Aidan, & Owen) at their houses.  Each car full will pick up two incoming 7th graders, dress themselves and the new youth in funny clothing, go on a scavenger hunt and then breakfast at Einstein's on 15th & 15th (arriving to church just in time for the 10 a.m. service).  The youth are invited to sit together in church and will be introduced during announcements.

Here's the very important part: Will you please prep your youth with the idea that we want to make the experience as fun and inclusive for the new youth?  We want these incoming youth to feel welcome and accepted and begin to bond with the older youth!  This will ensure a great transition into youth for these incoming 7th graders.
