Refuge Youth Weekly Update

May 5th, 2016

Mother's Day is coming!

Friendly reminder for everyone: Mother's Day is this Sunday, don't forget about Mom!

Because it's Mother's Day we will not have our regularly scheduled youth programs. No SLUG/Confirmation Class and no evening Youth group. But that doesn't mean we won't still be busy; our Confirmation Retreat is this Saturday at 9am at Matthew and Megan's Home (see info below). Then next week we've got Oak Ridge High's Baseball Senior Night (see info below). The school year is wrapping up and we're already looking ahead to Summer, including our trip to London, CA!

Finally, I want to thank Jen and Lee Stacy for teaching and sharing their story this past week at youth group. That was a great time of testimony that has stuck with me all week, it was a great reminder of how God shapes and changes us through different seasons of our lives.

Quick Updates:

-Confirmation Class retreat this Saturday!

-Summer Mission Trip to London, CA dates: July 17th-July 23rd! Click Here for the Info Packet and Here for the registration form.

This sunday, single service at 1:30pm // No youth programs. Happy Mother's Day!

Confirmation Class

This Saturday we will be hosting our Confirmation Retreat at Matthew and Megan's home: 6513 Donegal Dr. Citrus Heights 95621. This will be a vital time for the Confirmation Class to come together and study their last few lessons before Confirmation Sunday, May 15th. Please be at Matthew and Megan's house at 9am with your Confirmation binder and a Bible. Lunch will be provided

Stacy and Scott Trevor will be hosting a dinner that evening for the confirmation students and their families. That will be at their home, 3095 Dorchester Wy. El Dorado Hills, at 5:30pm. We will be carpooling from Matthew and Megan's in the afternoon up to the Trevor's home.

Please let me know if you have any questions about Saturday. We're really looking forward to this time we'll have together!

Till the Soil Mission Trip

Mark you calendars now for this Summer's trip to London, CA! You will not want to miss this amazing week!

This year's theme is Burning Ones, based on Romans 12:1-2 in which we are called, as Christians to give our selves as living sacrifices to God. We will be unpacking this theme over the coming months as we prepare to go as God sends us.

Thanks for coming to this Parent Info Meeting this past Sunday. If you have any questions about the trip, please let me know. Here you can find a link to the Information Packet, and Here is the trip registration form.

Refuge's Family Dinner

No Family Dinner this week, it's Mother's Day!

Every Sunday before Youth Group we are hosting a Family dinner. A chance for all of us to come together as a youth group family and share a meal. This is just a relaxed time to eat and be with one another.

If anyone wants to volunteer to prepare the occasional meal, we'd love the help!
