School is back in session and we are gearing up for a great school year in IMPACT Student Ministry. The image above is a snap shot of the special events and activities planned for the next 9 months. The school year is full with academic, athletic and other extra-curricular activities. We hope that by getting this information out early, it will help families and students balance the busy schedules.
Here is some more specific information for upcoming events.
Small Groups start September 11! Small Groups have become one of the most important things we do in the school year. We have some great adults who meet regularly with students to talk about life, read the Bible together, ask questions and pray together. We think that the relationships that are developed in small groups are so helpful and important that we encourage all of our students to be a part of a group. There is still time to get signed up for a group. Register online to be a part of Small Groups!
As part of our Small Group kick-off on September 11, we will have an IMPACT Tailgate Party @ 9:30 am. Our Junior High and High School classes will meet in the front parking lot of the church for breakfast, games and a fun start to the school year. People get geared up for the big game by tailgating. We are getting geared up for a great year of small groups…so let’s tailgate.
To welcome student back to the regular schedule of the school year, we are having a IMPACT Kick-Off Event on Saturday, September 17, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. We will have food, play 9 Square in the Air (our students love this game) and we will end with our very first Color War. Students need to wear a white shirt for this event. This is also a great time for our students to bring a friend. We ask students to sign up by Sept. 14. Sign up for the Kick-off Online!
Every fall we participate in the retreats hosted at our church camp, Butler Springs Christian Camp.
The Junior High Retreat is scheduled for Oct. 21-23. If our students went to summer camp, it’s a chance to reconnect with students they met. It’s also a great chance for our group to experience a weekend together. Total cost is $60 and registration is due Sunday, Oct. 2.
The High School Retreat is scheduled for Nov, 4-6. This retreat,due to attendance, is held over two different weekends. We will attend weekend #1 and, in order to reserve enough spots and get the best price, a $25 deposit is due Sept. 18 (after this date, the price goes up $10). Total cost for the retreat (if registered by the early bird deadline is $60.
Both weekends provide a great environment for students to connect with their own youth group as well as meet other students. There are times of singing, teaching, discussion, sports tourneys and other great elements.
We want to do our best to communicate well with families. There are a few different avenues we use to communicate. Please choose the one(s) that are best for you:
