We have many summer activities planned for you to engage in this summer. These will be all day activities, so mark your calendars for these future dates and activities. The church will be covering the cost of the activities, bottled water and associated meals as described below.  Please think through the activities and what appropriate items you will need for them.  Sunscreen, bug spray, towels, proper footwear & clothing, etc. If you have any questions, please reach out.

July 6, we are taking the youth on a tanking trip down the Loup River.  We will be doing a free car wash beforehand as a community service opportunity as part of the trip.  The car wash will be from 8:30 -10:30 am.   The tanking trip is through Broken Arrow Wilderness out of Fullerton.  Our trip launches at noon from Fullerton.   We will provide lunch, dinner, bottled water, transportation and the cost of the trip.  If you want specific snacks or drinks, you will need to bring it with you.  I recommend bringing a change of clothing if you do not want to remain in your wet clothes all day, maybe a couple if you want to change in-between the car wash and the tanking trip.  Be sure to wear clothing that can get wet and is appropriate for a church outing (modest one-piece bathing suits are acceptable).  We should be back to church around 7 pm.

August 6, we will be doing a lake day at Sherman Reservoir.  As long as the water level allows, there will be boating, swimming and other games and activities.  As the community service opportunity that day, we will be doing a senior visit to Matelyn. The youth will spend about two hours with the residents of Matelyn playing bingo, doing crafts and other games and activities prior to heading out to Sherman. The church with provide lunch, dinner, transportation, snacks and drinks.  I again recommend bringing a change of clothes as you will probably get wet.  ☺  Be sure to wear clothing that is appropriate for a church outing (modest one-piece bathing suits are acceptable).  You need to be at church by 9:30 am to participate and we will be back to church around 10 pm.

Parents, if you have any questions at all, please contact me.
