WAVE Update 7/12

"How precious is your steadfast love, O God!  The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.  They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.  For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light." 
Psalm 36:7-9
Here's your update for the week to be in the know! 
1.  Trip Reminder 1 = Next weekend, on July 19-20, the Sr. High will be going down to Ship Island off the Biloxi Coast!  All signups and payments for this trip are DUE THIS SUNDAY, July 14 by 7:30pm.  All trip participants will have a meeting after WAVE.  They will receive the schedule, packing lists, etc.  Please have payments in on time and have your student attend this meeting.  All Sr. High students received a postcard in the mail this week for payment details, etc.  If you have any other questions, please let me know!  Encourage them to come on this fun trip! 
2.  Trip Reminder 2 = On July 26-28, the Jr. High will have "The mini Escape" at Lake Cavalier for the weekend.  All signups and payments for this trip are due on Sunday, July 21.  The cost is $75 per student and $50 per student if they helped with 2 or more fundraisers.  This will be a great trip as well and the theme for the weekend will be "Finding True Strength."  We will be looking at various texts dealing with finding your identity and strength in Christ.  We will also be tubing, going "geocaching," "boot camp" and more!  Jr. High students will receive a postcard in the mail next week! 
3.  Lastly, for new students or if you didn't get a chance to do this last time, please register for our WAVE texting service.  This is how you will receive all important updates for events and scheduling.  Text @waveyouth to the number 23559.  Some may have to create a username, others may not.  Once you have done that, you are in.  It literally takes less than 30 seconds! 
Hope you all have a great weekend!  A ski trip information email will be sent to you by the end of the day.  Please take a look at it!
