Tomorrow night!

YOU GUYS – don’t forget about both of the important events happening tomorrow night:
1) Camp Barnabas Interest Meeting, 5:30pm, Bridge – this is for any 9th-12th grader interested in attending the Camp Barnabas mission trip this summer. This is a chance to hear what Camp Barnabas is all about, see some pictures and videos to learn more about the experience, and ask questions of students and adults who have been in the past. No commitment necessary at this meeting – just come and learn!
2) Sells Family Welcome Party, 6:30-7:30pm, Teen Center – all WoodmontYG students, families, and lifeguards are invited to come and celebrate Charlie and Hayley’s first class with our youth group! There will be cake, an ice cream sundae bar, games, a group photo, and a chance to get to know this awesome couple and their precious 2 year-old son Everett. You won’t want to miss it!
See you tomorrow night!
