We are excited to have a special hangout night for just 6th-8th graders!
Friends are welcome!!
It will be a safe & caring environment where Middle School students can be themselves and build friendships with their church youth family!
We will have fun foods they love…a short (15-minute) message of love and encouragement by Pastor Shawn Loughrige, and then LOTS of free hangout time to do whatever activities they enjoy with their fellow students. We will have two den parents who will keep the food flowing, be available for any needs, and then help the kids clean up the space at the end of the night. Arts Pastor Stacey Livingston (& our Middle School girl’s group leader) will be the event host and be present to keep the space safe, loving, and fun!
The evening format will be like this…
Main Auditorium doors will be open at 6:55-7:10 for the kids’ arrival. Doors will be locked after that but you can text Stacey if you need to arrive later and be let in. We will begin with a short encouragement message to build up all of our Middle Schoolers (i.e. pour love/encouragement into their hearts/minds/souls) and then let students hang out however they want in the Student Stadium with many fun options to take part in. The last 15 minutes we will invite all the kids to help clean up and leave their space in great shape for the next group to use.
Parent Invitation: “Drop & Go” or “Stay & Connect”
You are welcome to drop your student(s) off (signing them in first please!) and then come back at 9 pm to pick them up. Or, if you want to stay and get to know some other middle school parents you can! If some of you want to stay & connect, we will provide a special place in the cafe just for you with your own food/drink to enjoy with fellow parents. Just let Stacey know if you are interested in staying and connecting with other parents and we will make that happen. 🙂
Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns!
Hope your kid(s) can come!!!
