This has been a great start to the school year and we are really thrilled at how focused our teens are. Bible Class on Sundays (9:00 a.m.) are going exceptionally well as the teens are getting to spend some time with our Senior Minister. Wednesday Night bible classes (6:00 p.m.) are all teen led and their passion, focus and delivery has been outstanding so far. And of course, we have all really loved playing as much volleyball as possible.
As we enter into the fall, we will be intentionally slowing down so we can put some focus on many of the ministries that Gateway is working on and we want our teens (and parents) to be heavily involved in all of these endeavors.
Also, in the next couple of weeks, Jeremy and Seth will be sending out the specific dates for the Summer Activities and the projected cost, so you can begin planning for those. As we mentioned, we will have four major trips – Mystery Trip, IMPACT, Honduras Mission Trip and CAMP. Lots of information about the type of help we will need for this will be there as well. What is below are the approximate dates.
The updates below will also show the times we would normally gather but aren’t due to Holidays and other activities. Also, they are not fully inclusive of all potential activities, as local hang outs and plans can be made in the midst of the months as well. This just gives you an overview and lets you know times we specifically will or will not be meeting.
