HPC Youth Happenings: 2/21/17
Dear Parents, Students and Volunteers,
If you're into social media, then I'd like to invite you to check out #YOUTHursday. YOUTHursday features links to articles, videos, books and book reviews, conference and training opportunities as well as quotes, ideas, Bible verses...all sorts of various equipping tools designed for both teens and parents. Each week will be something different. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter (@ChattaNole) or Instagram (@hpcyouthguy) to see the posts each week.
Here's what's happening this week:
1. Jamaica Team: Our next meeting is THIS Sunday, February 26th for lunch right after worship
- Anyone interested in donating to the Jamaica Mission Trip can do so here.
- Students, if you have not yet written and mailed your support letters, please do so as soon as possible.
- Also bring your passport or a copy of your passport if you haven't already
2. Service Opportunity: East Brainerd Snack Pack Ministry
- Next Wednesday, March 1st, we will join East Brainerd Church of Christ as they pack 4,000 bags of food for needy children in the Chattanooga area. This is a small way that our youth can "Glow in the Dark"
- Students who are interested should meet at HPC at 5:30 for pizza. We will return to HPC around 8:00
- For more info on the ministry, click here
3. D-Groups are tomorrow (Wednesday), February 22nd from 6:30 - 7:30 PM
4. Underground is this Sunday, February 26th from 5:00 - 6:30 PM!
5. Students, submit your ideas for our New Program and Youth Wing names!
- With the move to the new church building comes a new name for our Sunday night program.
- Though we love the name "Underground," it won't really fit anymore once we move since our youth spaces will be above ground
- Also, what might we call our new youth spaces?
- I would love to hear suggestions from our students for new names!
- Submit your ideas online here, or you can text or email me
6. High School Guys: Come on the Men's Retreat!
- The Men's Retreat is March 31st - April 2nd at Camp Vesper Point
- It is a relaxed, fun time with great fellowship, awesome food, and challenging teaching!
- The cost is $90, and you can sign up and pay here. Talk to Morgan if you need help with scholarships!
7. Middle School Guys: Save the Date for a Backpacking Trip
- An Ancient HPC Youth Tradition is reborn April 22nd - 23rd.
- Stay tuned for more details...
8. Youth Connections Squad, here is our rotation for the next 3 weeks:
- February 26th: Kirby Johnson, Anna Hutchings
- March 5th: Sam Landreth, Emily Johnson
- March 12th: Apsara Beard, Andrew Johnson
- Please remember to let me know if you can't make it when you're scheduled!
9. Parents, consider picking up a copy of Faith that Lasts: Raising Kids that Don't Leave the Church by Jon Nielson.
- If you'd like a copy, you can purchase one at the church for the low cost of $5 per copy.
- Copies are available on the book shelf in between the adult Sunday school rooms. First come first serve.
- There are only 2 more open slots: for April 2nd and April 30th!
- If you have forgotten your CCB login or password, you can click the link that says "Forgot username or password," or you can email Josh Huff and he will resend you your login information.
- If you still can't get into CCB, but would like to sign up for snacks, just email me and I will figure out a way to get you on the list
