WAVE Update 8/30

"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me." 
John 14:6
Here is your update for the week! 
1.  Sunday Dinner Dates still needed.  Attached to this email is the updated dinner schedule for Sunday WAVE this Fall.  We are still in need for these dates below.  If you are available to help out, please email me the date you would like to help out with.  You can also "tag team" with another parent for a date that has already been filled if you would like. 
September 8
November 10
2.  If your student will be in town this weekend for Labor Day, don't forget that our next Movie and Game Night: Part 7 is tomorrow night from 5:00-11:00pm!  Free food, games, movie watching, and more!  Invite friends!  We hope to see you there.  WAVE will NOT meet on Sunday, September 1st due to Labor Day weekend. 
3.  On Sunday, September 8, WAVE will be switching over to its new time:  5:00-7:30pm.  We are growing and the kids are eager to play games longer, worship more, and study the Bible together!  This is exciting!  We have almost run out of food the past 4 times we have had Sunday WAVE! 
4.  Leadership Team Applications for the 2013-2014 school year will be available on Sunday, September 15.  They will be due on Sunday, September 29 by the time WAVE is over.  Leadership Team is a great opportunity for students in grades 10-12.  The main focus is to develop servant hearts and student initiative for WAVE events, fundraisers, and trips.  Students on the LT also have separate Bible studies, get cool LT gear, and take a Leadership Team retreat in the Fall and in the Spring.  Please encourage your student to think about applying!  If you have any other questions, please let me know. 
5.  Lastly, Youth Sunday will be on Sunday, September 22 this year.  Students will run both the early and late services.  More details will be coming out next week, but be sure to start putting the buzz in their ears about how fun this is.  Last year the students had a blast!  A signup sheet will be available next Wednesday night.  We will have practice on Wednesday, September 18 from 6:30-8:00pm in the Chapel. 
Hope you all have a great long weekend!  See you on Sunday.
