Hey guys, I hope that this email finds you doing well. We are in the middle of a crazy buys time in the Grove, and we want to make sure that you are informed and aware of the happenings in our youth ministry. I want to encourage you that if you ever have any questions about what is going on in the youth ministry, please let me know.
Here’s what the Grove has coming up:
Our Featured Event: This week’s featured event is the “A’MAZE’INGLY Scary Night! This is a huge outreach that we do every other year. The date for the event is Saturday, October 27th, and we really want all students to be a part, and we would desire that each student bring at least 1 friend of theirs so we can share the Gospel through the night with them! You can R.S.V.P. here, and feel free to share the event!
Our Upcoming Events:
- October 27 – A’MAZE’INGLY Scary Night – This is an outreach event for the entire community that the Grove hosts. We decorate and create a haunted house right here on our campus for the community to come to. We share the Gospel through it and after it, and give them a chance to respond to the Gospel! It is a great opportunity, and we are going to need you guys involved. The cost is free, and takes place at the church from 7-10 pm. If you would like to volunteer, please email me, and I can get some information to you. You can also R.S.V.P. via facebook by clicking here, and please join as well as share the event with the people who you are connected with through social networking!
- October 24 – Halloween @ The Grove – This is a fun night where our students dress up for the Grove. We start at 6 and conclude at 8 pm, and will have some fun festivities.
- October 31 – Service Opportunity for Students – Each small group will be encouraged to serve a meal to the volunteers of our church wide event, Trunk or Treat. The trunk or treat event is an event designed for the kids of the community to come to our campus and hear Bible stories, dress up, and get candy. It is a great way to share the Gospel. Our students will be serving all of the volunteers a meal as well as decorating some trunks. Make sure your student is involved in some way so that we can teach our students to be missional in their community!
