Youth Beach Retreat Sept. 22-24

Hi Youth (and Parents),
It’s Almost Beach Time! Our Fall Spiritual Beach Retreat runs from September 22-24. Please read all details below and be sure to let me know ASAP if you (or your youth) are coming and are not yet on the list.

We’ll be having dinner (and a parent meeting) at the church on Friday, September 22 at 5:30 and will be leaving by 6:30 from the CUCC parking lot. It will take us about three hours to get there. We will return to the CUCC parking lot by 5:00PM on Sunday, September 24.

We’ll be staying free of charge (thanks to Bill Bryan and Stephanie Welsh) at 205 Fredeen St. Emerald Isle! No money is needed, transportation and meals are provided by our amazing adult volunteers!

The weekend will allow for some quiet time for homework (or rest).

I need a registration form and a medical release form from each youth in order for them to participate! Last year’s forms will be available at the parent meeting for reference. Forms can be submitted beforehand or turned in as we depart.
