Our Student Ministry had an awesome time last week in the McLaughlin Neighborhood serving alongside Community EnCompass and Bethany Church at CATCH Camp. Great week that included just about everything, including a dead van battery (bad) and a trip to the brand new trampoline park on Thursday (super good!). A huge thanks to all our students and leaders who volunteered last week.
Each year out 8th grade CORE class celebrates in April with a big dinner, some bubble soccer and some group devotional time. It is a great way to celebrate the end of an eight month journey of learning and discovery for both students and mentors!
What a wonderful Christmas season we had at Forest Park. Christmas Eve was awesome with three worship services full of people! Below is a quick look at some of the fun we had celebrating the birth of our Savior!
What an awesome experience Trunk or Treat 2017 was! It might have been rainy and cold outside, but that didn't stop almost 800 people from coming through out doors to share in fun and excitement. A HUGE thanks to all our volunteers who were here to pass out candy, cook food, play music, run games, help set up and so much more!
Once again this year our Student Ministries partnered with Community Encompass to help our at CATCH Camp in the McLaughlin Neighborhood. Pastor Justin along with some students and parents were on hand during the kickoff event in June to cook food, help run some of the games, and be there to fellowship with the people in the neighborhood. This is a great event every year and is just one of the ways Student Ministries is living into our vision of Transforming Live in Our Community for God!
Some Sunday mornings just have a little bit of everything. We had great worship, a chance to celebrate our 8th grade CORE students as well as all of our children, and the beginning of a new message series.
On January 7 the Alaska Mission Team sponsored a 7K run to help raise money for the trip to Alaska Christian College in July. 25 crazy runners braved the cold, snow and wind to help raise $900! Here are the photos to prove there are people crazy enough to run when the wind chill is below zero and it is snowing!!
We were blessed this year to have Christmas fall on a Sunday. Here are a few of our favorite images from our Christmas Eve and Christmas morning worship services!
