Today almost 70 people travel to the Endless Mountains for our Fall Retreat!
Our goal this weekend is to help our students develop closer relationships with each other, our leaders and God! Please pray for us as we go!

Fall Retreat!People are doing last minute packing. Camp Orchard Hill is cleaning out their cabins. The coach cus is being vacuumed out. The paint ball supplies are being checked. Our team is doing the last minute prep. Fall Retreat 2010 is here and ready to roll!

I'm excited to be traveling with nearly 70 other people to the Endless Mountains in Pennsylvania today for our Retreat. It promises to be a great weekend. If your student is registered you would have received a confirmation email yesterday.

We are hosting a prayer meeting on Saturday and Sunday morning at 7:30am at Camp and you are invited to join us. Grab a cup of coffee and jump on the conference call line:

Next Sunday is our huge Halloween Party!
We need your help!
1) Make sure your students invite some friends!
2) Donate a pile of candy to the party!

candy. yumm.
Can you help us with our Candy Drive?
What do you get when you put together a fun night on the calendar, a pile of candy, some great music, wacky games, a costume contest with prizes students will actually want to win (like iPods!), great speaking and more?

You get Halloween Tsunami!

Sunday October 31st

We are designing this night to be a lot of fun for your students and to be a great chance for them to invite their friends! But we need your help!

We are wanting to give away a pile of candy to each student that comes to the night. Can you help you us with our Candy Drive this year? We would need the Candy to be brought with you to church on Sunday October 31st (or to arrange another time for us to pick it up.)

Email me today to let me know if you can help with the Candy Drive!

NO Surge or Flood Life Groups on this Sunday because of the Fall Retreat.
But next Sunday we start some brand new series that we are excited about!

Starting Sunday October 31st for our Flood (High School) Life Groups. From mosque controversies to threats of Koran burning, Islam often makes headlines. Is it hype? Is there hope?

Join us for an eye opening series exploring Christianity & Islam. We'll discuss the differences between the two faiths, and answer the question: "Can we Coexist?"

Through the Bible in 12 WeeksStarting Sunday October 31st our Surge (Middle School) ministry starts a new series called "Through the Bible in 12 Weeks!" Reading the Bible is one thing . . . understanding it another! Most middle schoolers still think the Bible as a disjointed jumble of stories and history lessons - this series is designed to give them perspective they need. It will help ground them in their faith and confidence in God's Word.

Want help in getting your Middle School students connect to Surge?

Although we've been working hard to make this Retreat a success for our students . . . we are also focused on next weekend's Tsunami as well. We will be turning up the volume on that as we head into next week . . . but we would really love for you to encourage your student to be inviting friends and family to that event. It's a great chance for our students to reach out to their friends!

Thanks again for all your support and encouragement! We're looking forward to what happens this weekend. Have a wonderful weekend as well - take advantage of the fact that your students are at home. :o)

If there is anything I can do to help you . . . please reach out!

Partnering together!
