Coming up at High School Youth Group
On January 9 join us for a night of study and relaxation and we prepare for finals. We will have food, a room group study, a place for quiet study, and the gym will be open to relieve some stress.
Beginning January 16, we will start a series based around the Disney movie FROZEN . Each week we will look at different “choices” made by the characters and then play winter-themed games in a giant, month-long competition for prizes and glory.  
Then on February 13, we will return to Luther Manor to deliver Valentines and share the love with a great group of residents.
