Hi everyone!

As your summers wind down, I hope you’re all enjoying some last minute time together! I wanted to put a quick reminder out there for some upcoming youth and family ministry events:

Family Cookout @ Gocke’s // THIS Sunday August 4th, 5-8pm
All youth and families are invited to come to the Gocke’s Sandpit to enjoy some good food and good company! There will be swimming, games, and a short devotion. Please bring camping chairs and drinks for your family, and a dessert to share. Hot Dogs and hamburgers will be provided. Please RSVP to Josh
Youth Servant Leadership Retreat // August 17-19
Depart: Friday 6pm, Return Sunday 4pm // $35 per person

All High school youth are invited to attend our annual retreat at Camp Luther. This year our topic will be “Rescue Academy: Becoming a Rescuer”. We’re living in an age where teenagers are experiencing more stress, anxiety, depressions, and mental health issues than ever before. While caring adults do everything they can to be good helpers in the lives of youth, the youth themselves are uniquely positioned to be positive resources to their peers. In Rescue Academy, participants will learn how to help hurting people, and how to do it well. Most importantly we’ll learn what God’s Word has to say to us about who the true Rescuer is.  SPACE IS LIMITED, SO PLEASE RSVP TO JOSH ASAP

Family Tanking Event // Sunday Sept. 2nd
Depart after worship at St. Paul, $7 per person
Come end the summer together by enjoying a relaxing day on the river at our annual tanking trip. We’ll be going to Spalding, NE and tanking down the Cedar River. Great for the whole family! please RSVP to Josh.
