Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our EYC Sandwich Sunday--from packing lunches to writing encouraging notes. You did an awesome job, and I know that the Faith Cafe community is very thankful :). Pictures below!

No EYC THIS Sunday (January 28th)!

Are you ready for some football?! NEXT Sunday (February 4th), join us for our Super Bowl EYC--from 4:30-6 p.m. in Discovery House! Super Bowl Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m., so you won't miss a minute of the big game. Come dressed in your favorite jersey (extra points for accessories or painted faces!)--for fun games, food, and a discussion on succeeding in the Game of Life!

I'm excited--can you tell :)?

The St John's EYC Mission Trip to Chattanooga (June 2-9) is officially full, with 13 Youth signed up! If you are still interested in participating, we are starting a waiting list. The 1st Mission Trip payment (after the initial deposit) is due by February 11th! 

Do you need service hours? We have a few EYC Service opportunities coming up! First, on Sunday, February 11th we will need help from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. with Childrens' games/activities during the St John's Annual Meeting!

Also--save the date for St John's Vacation Bible School (June 18-22)! This year's theme is Shipwrecked!

Check out this semester's updated calendar (in easy JPG form)! Save it, read it, and love it!

Random Holiday: Friday (1/26) is Dental Drill Appreciation Day!! Click here to celebrate?

New Beginnings #63 Middle School Retreat will be held at Dayspring Conference Center on March 2-4, 2018! New Beginnings is an awesome weekend geared especially for 6th-8th graders--using songs, skits, and small group discussions to address some meaningful topics. Here's a quick video from New Beginnings in the Diocese of Florida (some things may be different, but you'll get the idea):

You can get more info on New Beginnings here, and you can sign up for the weekend here! The deadline to sign up is Friday, February 16th. I am planning to work New Beginnings as an Adult Sponsor, so I will be there with the Youth on the weekend.

Happening #76 (a High School Retreat) will be March 16-18 at DaySpring Conference Center! Get more info here, or sign up here! The cost is $100 per person (scholarships available), and the deadline to sign up is March 2nd!

Quote of the Week: "When you're good at something, you'll tell everyone. When you're great at something, they'll tell you." --Walter Payton (Super Bowl running back)

Our pictures are from last week's Sandwich Sunday! Remember that God loves you, and so do I :)!
