Wednesday Friendsday
Come hang out with Pastor Lorne and Tania for a night of fun and growing in faith this Wednesday from 7-8 pm.
Sunday School Update

There is also NO Sunday School the next two weekends - instead, come to the Advent Family Breakfast (Sunday) and the Senior High Retreat (12/3).
Tonight is the last night to register for a time of fun, faith, and exploration!
Redefining Normal Retreat
Have you ever wondered what the Church could be in the world if ordinary people became extraordinary disciples? “Redefining Normal” is an invitation to reclaim the life of faith from inside the religion of Christianity. The more closely we watch Jesus, the more a dichotomy rises in our spirits between what is and what should be .

Come have a blast at our annual high school retreat! We’ll meet at POP on Friday, December 1 at 6:30 pm and return by noon on Sunday, December 3.  Come for both nights or just one – but sign up by Sunday, Novebmer 26!  Senior high students are invited to gather in a different kind of retreat setting – a historic mansion in Covington. 

We'll spend the weekend exploring, discovering, centering, and connecting with God and one another. We're looking into field trips downtown (possibly the Zoo, Fountain Square, and more fun places!).

Mandatory Parent Meeting for Gathering Participants
Students can attend, but at least 1 parent is required.

Choose one 30 minute meeting to attend:
Sunday, December 3 @ 12:15 pm

Wednesday, December 6 @ 6:30 pm

We'll meet in the Atrium!

Please contact Mary Ellen if you have questions ( These meetings will clarify information, streamline communication, and get all families engaged. We need to raise at least $21,000 to keep your costs as they are. 
Upcoming Opportunities to Serve!
Serve with NEST!

Come tutor with us on Monday, December 4 - we tutor from 3:00pm-4:30pm. Once the kids are done with homework, play football, kickball, and connect! We meet at Westover Park.

It's lots of fun!
Serve with Parents' Night Out
Even if you're not going on the Gathering Trip this summer, we could use your help at the next fundraiser (babysitting kids from church). Join us from 6-10 pm on Friday, December 15 (or any part of that night).
