WAVE Update 4/12

"Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?" 
James 2:5
 Here's what's coming up in WAVE: 
1. A reminder that we have switched over to our very own texting service.  If you would like to receive text updates for all activities, text "@WAVEYOUTH" (without quotation marks) to the # 23559.  Once you have done this, it will ask you for a password.  The pw = "gracewave" (one word, no quotations).  After this, it will ask you to create a username in the group service.  Once you have completed this, you're in! This is the service we will be using from now on, so it's important to get your students and you of course put into the system so you can be in the know!  If you have any problems, let me know.    
2. Next Saturday, April 20, we will be going to Rocky Springs for the day.  Rocky Springs is an hour south down the Natchez Trace.  We will be spending the day out in God's creation from cooking out, swimming in a waterfall, playing frisbee, a scavenger hunt, and more!  We did this trip last year and the kids had a blast!  Be sure to check out the postcard in the mail for all details.
3. Thirdly, our next Fundraiser is on Saturday, April 27.  We will be having a car wash at Grace Chapel from 10:00am-3:00pm!  Be sure to have your student attend!  If you have any extra towels, buckets, and sponges that you are willing to donate for a few hours, please send them with your student!  We raised almost $700 at our last Fundraiser so I am excited to reach for that goal once again at the Car Wash! 
4. Lastly, our next Parents Meeting is on Sunday, April 28 at 4pm in the Media Room.  Please plan on attending this meeting!  We will be discussing the plans for the summer, including summer trips, curriculum, and weekly events.  You will receive the rough draft of the summer calendar at this time as well.
