Sr High Hangout!

(note: the graphic is wrong. It should say the 14th). No school on Monday so the Sr. High will hang out at the EPICenter Sunday night (Jan 14). We will start at 6 PM. Everyone bring a 2-liter AND your favorite food to share (more if you’re up to it 😉) also bring a game (board game, card game, or video game to hook up to one of the TVs). We will wrap up around 10 PM.


Winterfest Deposits Due

Winterfest deposits are due today (1/7) for the discount to apply (CLICK HERE for all the WF details).  (I am sick so) Give your money to Whitney deSambourg or Lee Ann this morning. Make sure you put cash in an envelope and checks can be written to Lafayette Church.

Also make sure you are signed up TODAY (even if you don’t have the money, I need to know about your intent to go)!  If we don’t have enough for a bus at this point, I will have to rent vans. Renting vans makes it less flexible to add more people.

SPECIAL NOTE about Bible Bowl:

Because of travel schedules and timing issues, we are going to approach the Bible Bowl differently.  You are encouraged to participate in Bible Bowl (on Friday night) as an indivicual but we will not be coaching this event this year.  As a group, we will be participating in the Bible Challenge (this link is to the 2017 Event Rules). Shawn Stone will be heading this up. Check out what Shawn has planned in the video below:

Take a Break Devo!

DesignYes, it’s Finals Week – you’re almost done!  You need a short break to come (studying too much fries your brain – believe me, I know), enjoy a little time together, encourage each other, and be reminded of what is really important!

This Wednesday night for teenEPIC Youth Group, we will have a short devo, share in some hot chocolate and goodies, play the Saran Wrap game, hang out, and finish by FaceTiming Garrett Bender in China!

If you would like something besides store-bought cookies and snacks, it would be great if a few of you could bring some snacks to go along with the Lee Ann’s Homemade Hot Chocolate.  Let me know if you’re bringing something and how much and I’ll bring less.

We’ll start the Saran Wrap game at 6:50 (because it takes a while) or when at least 4 of you have shown up…See you then!
