HPC Youth Happenings: 9/5/17

Dear Parents, Students and Volunteers, 
 
Tomorrow (Wednesday) from 6:30 - 7:45 is Dig, our Wednesday evening youth meeting. What is Dig? 
  • It's very similar to D-Groups. Students will "dig" deep into Scripture together! 
  • We will have a small group for high school girls, one for high school guys, and a combined group for middle school
  • High School Girls will study the book of Joshua, High School guys will study a book to be chosen by the guys
  • Middle School students will get to enjoy some games and icebreakers, and then have a time focused on learning how to see all of life through the lens of God's Word
  • This week, we will all start out together with some snacks, drinks and games since it is our first meeting.
  • Adults, we still need 1 man and 1 woman to help with the middle school portion of this program! 
 
Here's what's happening:
1. 5th Quarter Event is THIS Friday, September 8th after the Hixson/Soddy Football game until midnight!

  • I will be at the game at Hixson High School (which starts at 7:30) so if anyone wants to come to the game as well, I will see you there! 
  • After the game, students can come hang out, enjoy some inflatables, snacks and hear the Gospel presented. 
  • The event will take place at the Hixson Middle School gym and ends at midnight
  • Several other area churches will be involved with the event.
2. Adults, we are looking for help with the 5th Quarter event! We need adults to help with...

3. High School Bonfire Night: Friday, October 6th! 
  • All high school students are invited to come to the pavilion for a bonfire, s'mores, and other fun stuff!

  • Every student needs one of these...just fill them out and return them to the Church Office
  • They don't have to be notarized
  • Hard copies are available in the church foyer
  • The form can be found online here 
 
 
8. Mentoring Program 
  • 15 adults have gone through training to become youth mentors at HPC
  • The goal is for each adult to meet with a student on a regular basis for one-on-one discipleship 
  • We hope that many of our students will get to take advantage of this. 
  • In the near future, someone may contact you (parents) about meeting one-on-one with your son or daughter
  • If you would like more information about the program, give me a call!
