PRETEEN RETREAT – Don’t forget our Annual Preteen Retreat, the dates are July 23rd – July 25th. This event is a wonderful opportunity for soon to be 6th and 7th graders. The cost is $80 and includes 3 days and 2 nights of bible studies, games, crafts, swimming, etc. This is also a great way for our preteen students to interact with some of our high school students who will be leaders of various activities at the retreat. You can register for this event now by contacting Betsy Marlow at the church office or visiting the church website at www.ebclife.net and clicking on EBC Events.
STUDENT MINISTRY 101 – This event is designed to help new youth parents, and even some that may already have youth, learn about our Student Ministry programs. We have a special luncheon planned for July 29th following our Sunday morning services. The lunch will take place in The Student Ministry Building also known as 180. During our time together I will be informing you about our youth programs and activities. We will also be sharing our newly released event information with you as well. This is a free event for all soon to be parents of a 7th grader, and childcare will be provided for Preschool and Children. Your new 7th grader will be able to hang out in the 180 Area with some of our student ministry volunteers while the meeting is taking place. To RSVP for the luncheon please click here. All participants need to be registered so that we can make the needed preparations.
