Thursday Throwdown #1- Game Day

This coming Thursday, May 28th, we will have our first Thursday Throwdown of the summer! We will have an event as a youth group nearly every Thursday of the summer ranging from movie watching to museum visiting to the zoo to game days at the church. If you have an idea for one of these Thursdays, let Bailey, Kyle, or Mike know!

We are keeping our first TT simple with a game/board game/card game day up at the church building! We will meet at the building at 9:30am and finish at 1:00pm. Please bring any games you may want to play and also bring your own lunch to eat with the group! We will have a microwave available to heat up any food you may need to. This is also a very good, low-key event to invite a friend to! See you all there.
