February Middle School
Youth Happenings
We had a great time at the Middle School Glow Games. We tested out the black light 9-Square in the Air, played glow in the dark charades, and even kept a glow Wubble in the air for quite a while. Check out this month's Youth Happenings and join us for our upcoming Hunger and Thirst Lock-in, Wiener dog races, Silent Auction Banquet and Talent show, and a trip to an Okoboji Recharge. You can also join us each week for Sunday morning Youth Group, and we add more activities, games, and even the occasional donut.
Featured Events
Middle School Youth Group Hunger and Thirst Lock-In
Feb 8 from 8 PM to 7 AM
We had 37 middle school youth having a fantastic time at our first all night lock in back in the fall. Join us as we take it up a notch for our second lock where we are expecting over 50 youth to battle it out in our Hunger and Thirst Games. The Hunger and Thirst games are your opportunity to join a district and battle it out with your friends in different food-related activities while also learning about who we hunger and thirst for God.
 
Cost is $5
 
We will need chaperones throughout the night; please sign up for one or multiple shifts if you are able.

Spring Okoboji Recharge season is here. Register today for a GREAT WEEKEND of worship, friends, and fun with youth from around the region. New for the spring is a 4-6 grade recharge and even a High School recharge option to go with our Middle School option.
