November Edition
Turkey Trot
November 22nd | 7-10am
Every year Veritas helps take part in Gurnee's Turkey Trot 5k run that takes place Thanksgiving morning. This event is partially a fundraising event for our Panama mission trip and there is an expectation for those who were part of that team or plan to be in the future to volunteer for to help with this event. Volunteering consists of encouraging runners with signs and water, along with helping to provide snacks at the end of the race. You can sign up to help with this event at youth group or by sending me an email confirming you will be there. 
Winter Retreat (MS & HS)
February 15-17
Registration Due Jan. 6
One of my favorite things we do together as a youth group is our winter retreat. It is a great opportunity for students to bond together over a weekend filled with fun and activities. 

This year we will be going to Covenant Harbor. The total cost is $150 and registrations need to be completed on Covenant Harbor's website by January 13th. $50 deposit is required at time of registration and the remaining $100 is due when we leave on Feb. 15th. As always, I am committed to making sure finances are not a road block for families, so please reach out to me if you need help in that area. 

Registration Instructions:
1. Go to and click on the blue "Register" button at the top left.
Create a new account if needed (you may have one already from previous
attendance at their camp).
2. Be sure to choose the Winter Camp 2019 season and the dates of our
weekend (February 15-17) and the name of our church group (GCC Veritas) so you
can correctly select the weekend and our church's registration.
3. Continue through all the steps until "Step 5: Review and Pay" where you'll hit the
blue "Submit Application" button to finish.
