To Save a Life Movie Marathon Overnighter. Boy, that's a long title. But very accurate. I just placed an order for this intense film centered on the lives of teenagers. Are you ready to be challenged to change the lives of those around you?  

when? Wednesday, August 18th (after quiz practice ends at 8pm)-Thursday, August 19th around noon.  
where? Kevin and Melanie's house.
what? Movie Night and more! Feature Presentation: To Save a Life. Followed by whatever movies you choose..not to mention food, games, friends, etc!  

what to bring? Snacks and Pop to share! Favorite movies or games. Annnnnnd.....The challenge begins here: INVITE at least one friend who doesn't come to youth group already.

VBS. Overnighters. Dare2Share '11.

Vacation Bible School. It's right around the corner! Sunday, August 8 - Friday, August 13 6:30-8:45pm each night. Pam will need ALL of the teens to help out with Crew Leading and more!

This Sunday we will start with youth group at our house at 5:30pm and then send you teens over to the church at 6:30 for the start of VBS.

End of Summer OVERNIGHTER. We are looking at Wednesday August 18th-19th for a last big overnight fling before school starts. Let me know RIGHT NOW if that date is terrible for you or if it works.

Also: We need YOUR opinion on which movie series to show (don't worry, you can hang out, play games, eat food and such--no movie watching requirements.)

Option 1. Back to the Future Trilogy
Option 2. Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Option 3. Toy Story 1 and 2 (because I LOVE these movies. Except we'd have to find someone who owns them or get them from the library.)
Option 4. The Mighty Ducks (yeah 1990s films!)

any other ideas???

Put in your vote NOW!

Dare2Share. Yes, it's not until February but it's already time to start planning!  We've challenged each of you to bring a friend with you--even if it's just your first time!

The UnTour will be held in Columbus, OH on February 4-5. Tickets are just $44 right now--though most of you fundraising kids only have to pay $35 (or even less!) Ten tickets have already been purchased at this low price so get your money to Melanie asap. If you need to know what you own, just ask! (Cost of hotel and food will be added at a later date.)  Click on the Conference Resources Tab for all the details.

The UnTour. un.afraid. un.leashed.
Thousands of teens.
Extraordinary Worship.
Intense Dramas.
Hilarious, intriguing, thought-provoking speakers.
Cell phone challenges.
A great hotel with our great youth group.
Learning to make your faith something REAL. 
It's going to be EPIC! Don't miss it!
