Our lock-in will have dinner (pizza), snacks, and soda. We’ll play games, do fun activities, and watch movies. We will end our night with breakfast and attending Sunday morning worship together at 8:45.

Please bring: sleeping bag/pillow, toiletries, PJ’s or other comfy clothes, any games you want to play, & a fun attitude! Don’t worry- there will be time to sleep.

Note**** There will be no SS Ignite (Sunday school) or Ignite Sunday Night programming due to the Lock-In.

October 29:
Fall Festival & Trunk or Treat (12:30-2:30)
Please plan on having your students attend to help run games! We need all the help we can get and I would to have a strong student ministry presence.

Ignite Party (2:30-4:00)
Following the afternoon church-wide activities and clean up, Ignite will have a party in the pavilion from 2:30/3 until 4. This will consist of more food, games, and a costume contest. Pick-up will be at 4 PM and there will be no regular programming that night.

On a different note…
Thank you to those who helped out on Sunday night while I was away visiting my family. It was great to spend time in Ohio with them and I’m thankful everything went so smoothly while I was out! Finally, if you ever have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact with me. I’m excited for all this month will bring. I pray we continue to find ways to listen to God and serve our community.

Journeying with you,
