We will meet for regular fellowship time and food from 6:30pm to 7:20pm and then invite all parents/guardians back from 7:20pm to 8pm to plan our new year (youth group days, do we do confirmation for those who have not had it yet, concerts, mission trip, mission days, etc. - what would we like to do planning time --> be in prayer for this time). We will also schedule our January and if possible through May events.
Also, any 6th grade parents or parents of youth who have not had confirmation are invited to start for another 5 minutes after 8pm to discuss possibilities for Confirmation Class and how a schedule would work for that experience.
