New Events and updates:
Summer Kickoff: 8th-12th Mystery Lock Out!
June 4th-June 5th: Lock OUT is very different from lock IN. Instead of being locked in the church, students will be sent OUT to activities all over Little Rock.

Why is it a mystery? Because parents/guardians will only know the schedule of activities the morning of the lock out, students will have the fun of being surprised with fun activities starting with lunch and going into the evening!
(Clues will be sent out so students can have a sense of what they might be doing!)

Here's the details of what everyone can know though:
  • Cost per student is $25
  • Students will have the option to spend the night together at a small group leaders, or peer's house--New 8th grade class will spend the night at the church as part of their fun initiation experience!
  • We will feed them lunch, dinner, and breakfast the next morning
  • The lockout will end with students attending worship together at PHUMC the next morning.
  • Students unable to spend the night will be able to have pick up at 9:30 PM Saturday Night. This can be indicated in sign up form.

5:00PM-7:00PM Sunday May 15:

We are celebrating the confirmands!

All youth (7th-12th) are invited to sit in the balcony and attend the confirmation worship service at 5PM in the sanctuary. Afterwards, we will walk to US Pizza and have dinner! Drop off is at the front of the church, and pick up is at US Pizza. Bring $10 to help cover dinner.
What's coming up:
NEW: 12 and 13 year olds given special permission to participate! Sign up below!

On Saturday, May 7th we are spending our day in mission with Miracle League!

Miracle League is a baseball program for kids with physical and mental disabilities, and we have been invited to be buddies for the players on the field May 7th.

Buddies assist and encourage their player, and add to the positive, cheering atmosphere.

There will be one game in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Pizza served in-between. All who have participated in Miracle League in the past report it being one of the most fun missions we do all year! To come with us on May 7, sign up below!

Buddies must be AT LEAST 12 years old

Adults needed for chaperoning, contact erowland@phumc.com if you are interested!
