Hey Student Min Parents and Students -
5 DAYS LEFT!!!
'Till WHAT, You ask??
Until fall retreat registration closes! Your student does NOT want to miss the opportunity ahead for worship, connection with small group, amazing messages that might be just what they need to hear as we are coming through this crazy time in our world, AND SO MUCH FUN! It's going to be a weekend to remember!
REMINDER - if you registered before the fall retreat plan changed to on-site, we processed a refund and we need you to RE-register your student HERE!

DON'T FORGET: THERE IS NO WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING TONIGHT!
With fall break (for GCPS) starting this afternoon, HMUMC is taking the night off!
No confirmation class this Sunday, but we do have E3 for ALL 6th-12th grade students at 11AM Sunday in the Student Center!

For those of you with fall break this week/weekend, we hope you find a way to kick back and enjoy the start of fall! If you're in town, we hope to see you at church on SUNDAY!

FALL RETREAT
Oct. 22-24, 2021


REGISTER TODAY! REGISTRATION CLOSES October 10th!

We can't even begin to tell you how excited we are to announce the return of FALL RETREAT! While we made the very difficult decision last week to shift our location of fall retreat, we are so excited about the weekend ahead. This weekend is a powerful weekend for students: a time to disconnect from everyday life and electronics, a time to worship, a time to connect with friends, and a weekend full of FUN! The Edenfield band will be leading worship and Charlie Conder will be inspiring us with some amazing messages! We're planning EPIC games for COLOR WARS too! So sign up this week so you can find out your color wars team, next week!!

Weekend Schedule:
Friday, Oct. 22: 7:00pm-10:30pm @ HMUMC
Saturday, October 23: 10:00am (drop off at Top Golf Gwinnett) – 9:45pm Pick Up @ HMUMC **Late Night for 11th-12th graders 9:45-10:45 Saturday
Sunday, October 24: 9:00am-3:00pm @ HMUMC
**All students will return home for sleeping at night. And price for the weekend includes all meals and snacks (Friday dinner through Sunday lunch)! We’ll ask for small group leaders and volunteers to help us transport students from Top Golf to HMUMC on Saturday.

You received an email last week with all the pricing details (we have options from $79-99 for the weekend) and information specific to the location changes. But more information can also be found on our WEBSITE!

Huge shoutout to the following families for helping with donuts the past couple of weeks: The Mantovanis, Lennigs, Christmans, McFalls, and Grogans! Our students have been scarfing down these yummy treats each Sunday!
