Sunday Night Live

SNL starts back this Sunday!  Make sure to join us in the new year and enjoy a pizza dinner with your friends and a time of bible study and discussion.  Our first series is:

One Another
At any given point throughout the day we are surrounded by other people. At home, at school, at the gym, at work, at restaurants, etc. And at each of those points, we choose how we will interact with one another. Will we ignore? Love? Mock? Accept? 

As followers of Jesus we have some pretty clear directions as to how we should interact with one another- whether those closest to us or those we seemingly would have no cause to speak to. This series will help students see just how we are called to one another.

SNL Dinner Sign Up

The new season of SNL starts this weekend and we need volunteers to help make dinner on January 20th and February 10th.  If you can volunteer to provide dinners for the students, please click on the following link to choose a meal and date that works for your schedule:

SIGN UP 

High School Mission Trip 2019

The mission trip for High School students next summer will be to Telgart, Slovakia.  Traveling overseas on a mission trip takes months of planning and preparation to make it a success and we also need to make sure it is safe for our students and chaperones.  By signing up to go on this trip, you and your parents are making a commitment to the following:

  • Sign up and pay a nonrefundable deposit of $200 by January 13th.
  • Go on the mission trip from July 12 – 21, 2019.
  • Attend the mandatory Planning Retreat on Friday, March 1 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm and Saturday, March 2 from 9:00am to 4:00pm to be held at Providence.
  • Attend at least 4 of the 5 following Planning Days:
    • Sunday, February 10 – 12:00pm to 2:00pm
    • Sunday, March 31 – 12:00pm to 2:00pm
    • Wednesday, April 24 – 5:00pm to 7:00pm
    • Sunday, May 19 – 12:00pm to 2:00pm
    • Monday, June 17 – 1:00pm to 3:00pm
  • Attend the commissioning service and final Team/Parent meeting on Sunday, July 7th.
  • Have or get a passport that doesn’t expire before February, 2020.
  • Be current on all shots including those recommended for traveling to Eastern Europe.
  • Have a travel waiver signed and notarized.
  • Have all Providence forms completed and the CBF waiver signed.

If you have questions about the trip, or have issues with any of the requirements, please EMAIL GEORGE to schedule a time for a meeting with Dane before the January 13th deadline.  All conflicts with the Planning Retreat and/or Planning Dates need to be approved by Dane before you can go on the trip.

We have determined that the maximum cost for this trip will be $1,800.  The cost will be reduced as we figure out the church funds that will be given towards the trip and the credit you can earn during the fund raisers that we will be sponsoring this winter and spring.  Once you have signed up, we will give you a payment schedule to spread the cost of the trip out over the next several months.  As with any trip, we do not want the cost of the trip to keep any student from participating.  There are scholarship forms located outside of Dane’s office or under the forms link above so you can request assistance.

The deadline has passed to register for this trip.

Chaperones Interested in HS Mission Trip

This is a big commitment for those adults willing to serve as chaperones on the High School Mission Trip.  Just like the students, they will have to be involved in every step of the planning and preparations to make this a successful and safe trip.  With more interest being shown in the trip than need, a team has been formed from the current Student Committee to review and choose the chaperones from those interested.

Anyone interested in chaperoning the High School Mission next summer need to agree to and understand the following:

  • Sign up and pay a deposit of $200 by January 13th (will be returned if not selected to go on the trip).
  • Fill out the Chaperone Application by January 13th.  You can click on the link to fill it out online or download a hard copy HERE to print and turn in.
