It’s time to sign up for Fuel!

2016-2017 School year

Promotion fb slidesFuel is the main time our youth meet outside of Sunday School.  It’s packed with great activities and games, a fantastic dinner, great worship, and biblically-based lessons that hit students where they are now.  This year we will emphasize small groups and encourage the development of spiritual habits.  We will also have some special nights, some for worship and some for outreach.

It’s free to sign up.  The only charge is for meals, which are only $3, and we even lower the cost for those if you pre-pay!

Register here

More information:
Times:  5-7:00pm
Schedule: 
Each night will have games (often with prizes!), meal, worship, and lesson.  Some nights will involve small groups.  All nights will involve excitement!
Grouping:  As often as possible, we will divide the teaching time so that it is separate for middle and high school students.  This will help us bring age appropriate discussions that are practical for your student. 
Dinner:  We will have great meals to eat together, which is a great part of our night and draws students together.  Meals cost only $3, and we strongly suggest you pay in advance.  Just bring a check on the first Fuel night (Sep. 13).  Cost for 28 meals through April 24 is only $75 (save $9).  Then you won’t have to worry about meal payments for the rest of the school year!

Schedule:

Schedule is subject to change, and some topics will be rearranged (more firm are the nights when we are/are not meeting).

College prep resource

image (9)

Preparing for college can really be tough!  I’ve come across a resource from Focus on the Family that can help.  It’s a college guide for both parents and students, and it’s a free, electronic download.  Just visit http://www.focusonthefamily.com/promos/free-college-guide.  Here’s a quote that stuck out to me from it:

Your job as a parent is never over, but your job description is changing daily.

 

If you have a student entering grades 11 or 12, your job description calls for post high school preparations.  Here’s one example for the college-bound.  The college guide provides 6 steps to helping your teen find the right major:

  1. Draw a timeline
  2. Discuss purpose
  3. Consider marketability
  4. Interview others
  5. Give options, not recommendations
  6. Allow your teen time to mature

You can see the details in the guide itself.  Let me know how I can help, too!

Youth Hershey Park trip: About a week left to register!

We have a great trip to Hershey Park planned for August 10, and we don’t want you to miss out!

Click here to learn more and register.

More information…

Register by August 1!

The youth ministry is heading up to Hershey Park on August 10!  We hope you can make it.  Here is the information:

Please note that we need at least 20 registrations to make this event possible and keep our pricing.

Deadline:  Registrations must be received by August 1 so we can get proper group information to the park.

Drop off and pick up:  Redland Baptist Church – meet in main lot
Times: 8:00am – 10:00pm on Wednesday, August 10
Cost:  $40 – pay by cash or check made out to Redland Baptist Church, and turn in to Kevin or youth leader.  If you opt for a meal voucher during registration, add $15 to the cost.
Other costs:  If not purchasing a meal voucher, set aside money for at least one meal in the park.  After we depart, we will make one fast food stop, so set aside money for that meal, too.
Other information:  When we get to the park, we will divide into groups of four or more, giving youth the responsibility to meet at assigned check-in times.  Younger groups will have an adult chaperone.  Our plan is to leave the park at 8pm, get a quick fast food bite on the way home, and arrive around 10:00pm.  If we are off by more than 15 minutes we plan to call with updates.

Youth Pool Parties on July 19 and 26

We have two great pool parties coming up!

Tuesdays, July 19 and 26, from 6-9pm

Two different locations for middle and high school youth:

Rising 6th-8th grades will meet at the Harper’s home

Rising 9th-12th grades will meet at the Petrolle’s home

(Addresses are on the printed permission slips)

We will need some parental chaperone help, plus we’d like to have a shuttle service at one of the locations to help with the multiple sites.

We’ll be grilling out – burgers and dogs.  Bring $3, plus a side item or beverage to share!  Pick up your permission slip at church, or look for it in an email.
