Middle School: Week of January 11, 2021
Last week the group leaders met together to get trained in for this spring semester and we're all excited to get the year started with your middle schoolers!
Wednesday, Jan. 13
Middle School Ministry meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 8:00pm. We are currently under Wisconsin Emergency Order that requires all attendees to wear a mask (no mask required for students with medical exemptions) and social distance. We do our best keep our group meetings safe and healthy for all.
This week we start our journey into spring by introducing and talking details of the We Believe Experience. The middle school group will be joining with the rest of the church in the reading plan in our own modified way. We'll do our group meetings each Wednesday and read material over the week in preparation for the next Sunday discussion! This is a great opportunity for your family to do WBE together and take your findings to your groups! I'm so looking forward to what we'll uncover.
Your student will need the WBE journal (it is $5 and can be bought online here,
at the the church office, or on Sunday morning) or they can use the online PDF version of the journal to get their reading plan (coming soon).
Friday, Jan. 22 - Game Night
On January 22nd we're going to have our first event of the year: a Board and Video Game Night here at Oakwood! We'll be in the Middle School Room from 6:00 - 8:00pm. Your student just needs to bring a snack to share with everyone. If your student would like to bring a video game, they need to bring their own console and the cords to hook it up to a TV with HDMI inputs. All board and video games students bring need to be playable with multiple people. If you or your student have questions about anything, let me know! I'd be happy to help. Sign up here.
Sunday, Jan. 31 - Mission Trip Meeting
And lastly, I'd like to invite you and your student to a Mission Trip Informational Meeting that will happen on January 31st from 10:45 - 11:45am. We're going to go over all the details for the trip this summer, answer as many questions as I can, and get the conversation started about the mission trip so you're all ready to make a decision when the time comes for that. I'll send a Zoom link out as we get closer if Zoom is a better option for you!
I'm super excited to see everyone this week! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll get back to you asap.
