Hello, youth and families, and happy SECOND SUNDAY SWAP week! We have lots going on, so be sure to read this entire post.
On Sunday, youth should bring lunch or eat in Tull Hall with their families. Jerusalem Choir will rehearse at 12:30pm, and youth fellowship will be from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.
Youth should bring a change of clothes and change before Jerusalem choir.
At 1:30pm, we will load the bus and head to Candler Park for an afternoon full of fun, fellowship, and reflection with the youth of North Decatur Presbyterian Church. Youth who went on the mission trip to Broad Street Ministries may remember some of the NDPC youth from that trip. We will play games, laugh, and celebrate the connectional nature of the Presbyterian church.
Candler Park is convenient for Central and North Decatur folks, and you just can’t beat that beautiful green space!
We should have lovely fall weather. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring a jacket.
We will return to the church by 3:30pm, and parents can pick up on Washington street as usual.
If your youth did not go to Six Flags, we need a current Youth Permission, Medical, and Photo Release Form. Please download the form, fill it out, and bring it on Sunday. We also need a Youth Waiver for Sign-Ins for each youth. Please bring a form or come to the youth suite to fill one out on Sunday.
Other important info:

-We still need parents to sign up for youth fellowship dinners in the spring. Click here to sign up.
-The summer trip to Guatemala will be here before we know it. Now is the time to apply for a passport! Remember that it can take several months to get a passport, so it is important to apply early.
-Our fundraising efforts are well under way! The bake sale on Sunday was wonderful. Thank you to all who have participated so far. For our December 7 bake sale, we need two youth and one adult to staff the table, and we need families to bring baked goods to sell. Click here to sign up.
-The church has some childcare needs coming up. Youth can provide childcare for church events, and the money raised will go towards their summer trips. The first childcare opportunity will be a dinner for parents of elementary-aged children this Saturday, November 8. Email Michelle if you are interested!
Thanks and see you Sunday!
