We’re ready to kick off another great year in Refuge Youth Ministries! I know you have a lot going on right now preparing to return to school so here are a few reminders to help you stay in the know!
Sunday, August 16 – Promotion Sunday! Youth - join us for Basecamp from 9:30-10:30 a.m. as we welcome the new 7th graders! We will have a delicious breakfast, some games and hear from Haley Watson and Dalton Green (seniors) about their summer mission experience in Hawaii!
*PARENTS - We will also have an official notary (Lori Hodges) in the youth room starting at 9:15 a.m. for any parents who need to have the new medical & media release forms notarized! So, stop by with the form so you can make it official for the year.
Monday, August 17 – Deadline to register for the Back to School Retreat that is August 21 and 22! Make sure to bring or mail your $25 and new medical & media release form to the church office by Monday 5 pm! More information about our Back to School Retreat is on our website at www.refugejc.com. You don’t want to miss this awesome 24-hour kick off to the year!

In just a couple of weeks, you’ll be back in the halls of your local school. I know. I just depressed most of you. Sorry. Your late night Netflix binge watching and sleeping in until 11 am is coming to an end very soon. Some of you are fully aware that school is coming because practice for fall sports is underway and band camp is beginning. Some of you are still hiding under the covers. At 2 pm.
