This Sunday, June 25, 2017, we will have a parent meeting for everyone planning to go to Blue Knob. If you have not turned in your $50 deposit this is the day to do it.

Please bring any payments and forms you haven't turned in yet! We will try to make it as quick as possible! 
 
All high school youth (including current 8th grade students) and young adults are eligible for this trip. The cost will be $250 per person and a limited number of scholarships are available. We are going with TEAMeffort who we have done many of our mission trips with in the past. This will be an exciting and new experience for many of us! The brochures for this event are available and can be picked up from the table outside of the Youth Dining Room.
