LH Summer Session 6.16.21

Hi LH Parents!

Hopefully you have all had a great few weeks! LH Summer Session kicks-off this Wednesday. We will be starting the night up on the tennis court and then moving into the LH room for the rest of the night! We will be doing an Olympic theme and have teams that will compete over the next several weeks for points. The theme this week is: “faith is a muscle”.

Now for the news that I anticipate you all to not like: masks. Based on the CDPH and CDC guidance for k-12 schools both students and leaders are to still wear masks inside. When we are outside masks are not required. Unfortunately, the guidance for youth has not been updated yet because it is largely based on schools. The CDC website does say that additional guidance for youth will be out in the next few weeks. When that comes out, we will reevaluate. Here is the link to the most current info from the CDPH: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx# and here is the info for k-12 on the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/operation-strategy.html#fully-vacc

LH Sunday Service is not returning – I realize that I left this very important information out of the summer parent letter, I apologize. While Impact will be resuming Sunday morning programs on 6/20, Lighthouse will not. This is decision has several factors. Developmentally, most high school students should be able to track with the Sunday sermon. This opens the door for students to transition and learn how to participate and operate in corporate worship or to try out serving on the tech, greeter, or children’s ministry team. The ultimate goal is for students to connect and build meaningful relationships with more adults. Relationships are key in students staying connected to their faith into early adulthood. If you would like to discuss this strategic move or have other feedback, I am available. I would love to know if it would be helpful for your family for me to provide family discussion questions for talking about the sermon as a family.
