NEWS FROM THE DIRECTOR OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND YOUTH PROGRAMS

Amy Grella — am@bhccml.com

ALL Youth, from preschool through 8th grade, are invited to the fourth annual Sunday-after-Christmas Pajama Party, on January 1, from 9:30—10:30 a.m., in the Lounge (room 110). There will be no children’s sermon. Please report directly to the Lounge at the beginning of worship. The nursery will be open that day. Wrap and Dive WILL NOT be held so that youth can help de-deck the halls after the party. Wear your PJ’s and bring a pillow and blanket. We will watch a fun holiday DVD.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 8—Normal Sunday school schedule resumes.

YOUTH /FAMILY PROMISE LOUNGE UPGRADES On Saturday, January 21 – Sunday, January 22, we will be working on the Youth / Family Promise Lounge to update the appearance of this space and make it more functional. Your help is needed to paint, clean, and re-organize during a work shift that weekend. On Sunday night, plan to join us for an all-family potluck at 6:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall, when we will dedicate the new Youth Lounge and have “Eat & Meet” for the entire family. Sign-up sheets are on the Youth bulletin board by the kitchen.

TWEENER RETREAT SIGN-UPS Youth, currently in grades 4-6, are encouraged to sign up for the Tweener Retreat at Crestfield Camp and Conference Center, which will be held from Saturday, April 29, through Sunday, April 30. Come enjoy 24 hours of fun! This retreat is specially designed to introduce the importance of retreating to young people. The 24 hours will give kids a chance to start exploring their relationship with God and what it means to be a Christian in an ever-changing world. Sign-up forms can be found on the bulletin board across from the kitchen. If you have any questions, please contact Amy @ am@bhccml.com or (412) 801-3723.
