What to Bring:
1. Comfy clothes
2. A Pillow and Sleeping Bag
3. A Snack that Can be Dipped in Chocolate
4. Money for Whataburger
5. Money for T-Shirt
Details: We will meet at the church at 8 pm and pickup will be at 8 am at the
Saenz house: 856 Kilbridge Lane (in Coppell Greens). Dede and Javier Saenz have graciously offered to cook the kids pancakes and bacon for breakfast. We will walk to the Saenz's house as a group.
***Each hour we will be doing something different, as a group activity, and at 11 pm we will be walking as a group to Whataburger for a late night snack. Upon arrival at 8 pm, we will have a chocolate fountain running. Everyone will need to bring something to dip into the chocolate (pretzels, marshmallows, strawberries, cookies, popcorn, rice crispy treats, apples, brownie bites, etc.)
Noah has graciously offered to design a cool new shirt and I am asking for $10 (to be given at the lock-in or on Youth Sunday) as I have rushed ordered NEW Youth Connect T-Shirts that the youth will be wearing on Youth Sunday. I have heard from most of the youth (as to what size shirt they will need) and I will email the parents of any youth that I haven't heard from yet.
There will be a mandatory Full Run Through for all youth participating in Youth Sunday from 3-5 pm this upcoming Sunday, February 14!
Here's the Format:

Important Mission Trip Info
To reserve your student's space, a registration form and $50 non-refundable deposit will be required by Youth Sunday, which is February 21st. The registration form will be available soon. Make check payable to VRUMC and indicate Mission Trip Deposit in the memo line. This is a very important deadline so that we reserve the correct number of spots through Team Effort and plans can move forward to start booking flights.
***Currently, this is just to reserve student spots, as adult chaperones will be based on the number of attendees. (You will be receiving an e-mail soon as to how this will work on behalf of the Youth Council.)
