Each Spring, our 6th graders have the opportunity to participate in special Sunday morning classes to focus on them as growing members of the body of Christ.
The boys’ class (Knights) begins this Sunday, March 2nd, at 9am in room 213 in the West Hall with leaders Jared Bowlin and David Gnewikow.
The girls’ class (Promise) begins with a Wednesday night kick-off for 6th grade girls and their mothers on March 5th from 5:30 to 6:30pm in the church Annex. The Sunday morning class begins March 9th with leaders Nancy Osman and Dawn Gray.
We hope all 6th graders and their parents will join us! Please let us know if you have any questions.
This Sunday (March 2nd) and next (March 9th) we are collecting cans to give Whitsitt families a small hand up during Spring Break. Some Whitsitt families may not look forward to Spring Break as much as others because for the two weeks they can not rely on school assisted breakfasts and lunches. That is as many as ten meals per child they must now account for and most families have multiple children at the school. The non-perishable food items WoodmontYGers bring these next two Sundays will greatly benefit these families.
In years past we’ve collected food over the course of 4 Sundays and asked for something different each time. This year we’re trying something new and only collecting food items over two Sundays while asking everyone to bring as much of each item as they’re able.
Here are the food items we are asking for;
1) Canned tuna or chicken (please no canned spam or other meats like vienna sausages)
2) Canned fruit (i.e. peaches, pineapple, mandarin oranges, etc…)
3) Canned veggies (i.e. green beans, corn, mixed veggies, etc…)
4) Starches (boxed potatoes, ramen, noodles, etc…)
The youth ministry is providing rice and beans that will also go into the bags so please do not feel the need to supply any rice or beans.
Pop on over to our Forms page to see all the wonderful things you can already be applying to attend this summer!
The latest addition is that of Nashville Workcamp (You only need to fill out the first page). If you know you’re going, go ahead and fill out a form and put it in the black mailbox next time you’re at church. The forms are absolutely due by April 27th, and with two months’ heads up, that should be a breeze!
Workcamp is for all current 6-12th graders, June 1-6 at our building, and we’d love to involve as many of you as possible!
If you haven’t been before, it involves about 300 students from around the Southeast gathering to serve Nashville by painting houses for free. Students are divided up into crews with students and crew leaders from multiple churches and sent out from Woodmont Hills every morning before coming back together in the evenings for dinner and worship.
It is a powerful experience, and is a fantastic opportunity to serve locally. Apply today!
Whitsitt Wednesday is finally here!
Meet at 6pm at Whitsitt Elementary School (not at church!) to join us for fun, games, food, and service to the families at Whitsitt.
We will be hanging out at Whitsitt until about 7:30pm, so make plans to pick up from Whitsitt around that time.
Again, we will not be meeting or having class at the church building tonight. If you go there, you will be confused and disappointed.
Also, we will be ordering pizza for everyone at Whitsitt, so if you don’t want pizza, eat something else before you come. If you do want pizza, it’s free.
See you there!
High School Mission Trip Applications are now available here on on the “forms” page. If you would like to go on either High School trip this summer, please fill one out.
HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS!
And moms…and life group leaders…
Join us at The Well in Green Hills on Tuesday nights at 6! We’ll be:
Hope to see you there!
Jr. IMPACT 2014 for 6-8th graders is June 13-16 at Lipscomb University.
IMPACT is a summer event at Lipscomb designed to provide an atmosphere for teens that enables the development of a personal faith, which will impact their world for Christ.
The IMPACT theme is always a mystery till the curtain opens. The theme is developed with varied emphasis on different elements of Christian faith from evangelism and textual studies to spiritual development. As well as classes, speakers and worship, campers will enjoy morning Impact which has become the comic break of the day. There is also the Coffee House where Christian groups perform in an intimate environment and campers can attend at their leisure.
We encourage all middle schoolers to attend! This event has been a huge hit with our students over the past two years, and it’s a great opportunity to engage with students from all over the Southeast (and beyond) as we worship, fellowship, and grow with one another.
Cost this year is $155, but if money is the only thing holding you back, please let me know. Scholarships are available.
Application forms are now available on the information desk in the lobby and here (please print on one sheet, front and back). Forms are due April 27th.
June 29-July 4 our 7th and 8th graders will be making a second trip to Albany, Georgia to partner with our friends at Mission Change.*
This trip involves various service opportunities related, but not limited to: serving the homeless population, participating in activities with the elderly, playing games with children, tutoring, and coming alongside any other current efforts at Mission Change.
This trip requires a great deal of maturity and a limited number of participants. Therefore, there is an application process in place to join the Albany Mission team. These applications (Middle School Mission Trip Application 2014) are due by March 30th this year, and there is no guarantee that applications can or will be accepted after that deadline.
The cost of the trip will be $300 before fundraising efforts, so that is a maximum. There is also a expectation that any student interested in participating in this trip complete no less than 5 hours of documented service (either with church or otherwise) before leaving. If you have any questions about the service hours, feel free to email me.
After the team is established, we will have informational meetings about the trip. However, if you would like more information before applying, I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
*This trip is limited to the 7th and 8th grades, so we encourage 6th graders interested in serving this summer to participate in Nashville Workcamp
This Sunday, the 16th, there will be a come-and-go baby shower with refreshments between 2-4pm in the Annex. They are registered at Target.
Please stop by and show the Sessions and Clara Mae some love!
Our wonderful friend, Phil, who will be running sound for us on Sunday has requested that all performers bring the tracks they need for their performances either on a disc or a flash drive. If you only have it on your iPod or iPhone, please transfer it onto a disc or flash drive before Sunday, so Phil can load them onto a playlist for the evening.
