Hey Lighthouse Parents!
I hope your 2016 is off to a good start! Three days ago we had a “Nerf Capture the Flag” night at Hope Center. Our student leaders planned it as an event to invite friends to. Not only did we have a blast shooting each other with Nerf Guns, but a bunch of our students invited friends to play with us. It was a great time!
As we look forward to the rest of the school year, I want you to feel prepared and “in the know” to support your student’s involvement in our youth ministry! We hope this letter and calendar will do just that, but feel free to call if you have questions!
LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY VACATION is coming this June!!!-We are so fired up for this retreat! We’ll be spending 5 days in beautiful Truckee, focusing on being God’s family on mission. This is a great retreat and we really need your help to encourage your students to be part of it. The dates are June 12-16. However, before we do that we’ll have our annual pancake breakfast fundraiser (April 30th) and BEFORE we do that, we’ll have a meeting to get everyone on the same page. Please mark your calendar for a very important parent meeting on Sunday, February 21st! We look forward to seeing you there!
March 4th and 5th we’ll be partnering with several area churches for an event we’re calling IN*JUSTICE. This will be in place of 30 HR Famine this year. Cost is $30, but please mark your calendars and look for more info to come!
At the end of March, our student leaders have decided to do a second Nerf outreach night. Seeing how much fun and success we had at the last one, we’re really excited to do it again! We also hope that, as you are able, you can help encourage your student to invite their friends. Maybe you could even offer to pick them up!
In April we’ll be looking at how we keep focused on Christ in a series called “Aim”. To kick it off, we’ll be going to shoot archery on Friday, April 1st (I’m not foolin’! ha-ha). It will be a fun way to introduce the biblical concept of keeping “our eyes fixed on Jesus”.
As always we’re available for you. Don’t forget that you can always email us, or check the Lighthouse Website/Parent blog. Sign up for weekly updates at www.hclighthouse.com. Thanks for letting us be in relationship with you and your kids!
