Week of July 22nd

Happy Sunday,
Hey everyone, hope everyone is doing well.  This past week was a busy week for many of you.  A lot of you either went on the Upperclassman Mission/Rafting Trip or went to Enter.  I heard this morning that the Upperclassman trip went really well (can’t wait to hear more stories).  I was at Enter this past week which was a blast!  God encouraged and challenged all of us in a unique way.  I was very thankful for all of you that were there.
Our summer continues this week.  Check out your respective titles below and see what’s going on for you this week.
Upperclassman Students
This week is pretty chill for you guys.  Your next Upperclassman Gathering ONLY get together is August 6th for a party.  After that, on August 16th, you guys will be serving at Night Strike.
But this week is not TOTALLY event free.  Join us for Summer Emerge this Wednesday night at 6pm in front of Grant High School (over at 8pm).  The London Olympics is starting in 5 days and we will be celebrating this by having the Mosaic Youth Olympics this Wednesday night.  If you have been to Summer Emerge once this summer then you have been placed on a team.  You and your team will continue to work together to earn points for our “end of the summer” prize.
Don’t miss this week.  You might regret it if you do.  This Wednesday will be a GREAT opportunity to invite a friend to join us!
Lastly, it’s not too late to sign up for our Wild Waves trip. Check out the info below under “Big Trips”.
 
Emerge Students
Tomorrow we are continuing our Monday Trips to serve Portland Rescue Mission.  We are headed back to Shepherd’s Door (a women’s and children’s shelter) to continue some yard work for them.  This may seem mundane to some of us but it is make a great impact at Portland Rescue Mission.  Remember, that is why we serve, not to fulfill some kind of need in us but to represent Jesus to the world.  To live out loud!
Meet us tomorrow at 9:30am at the church. Bring a lunch.  Wear close-toed shoes.  Parent pick up students at 1:30pm back at the church.
Also, this week at Summer Emerge we will be continuing our team competitions.  The London Olympics are starting in 5 days and we will be celebrating this by having the Mosaic Youth Olympics this Wednesday night.  If you have been to Summer Emerge once this summer then you have been placed on a team.  You and your team will continue to work together to earn points for our “end of the summer” prize.  Join us this Wednesday night at 6pm in front of Grant High School (over at 8pm).
Don’t miss this week.  You might regret it if you do.  This Wednesday will be a GREAT opportunity to invite a friend to join us!
Lastly, it’s not too late to sign up for our Wild Waves trip. Check out the info below under “Big Trips”.
BIG TRIP
We are headed to Wild Waves in one week (Monday, July 30th) and we have about 12 spots still available.  Many of you talked to me about coming but remember I am not guaranteeing your spot till you pay your way ($35).
What if you want to go but can’t afford it?  I would encourage you to look for an opportunity this week to work for someone you know to help you pay for it.  One night of babysitting or mow two yards and you can pay your own way.  Don’t be lazy!  Fight for what you want.  Ask Sydney Jones and Ethan Osborn, they paid her way to Enter by working hard!  Follow their lead!
We will be meeting at the church at 7:30am.  Bring a sack dinner to put in a cooler. Bring dry clothes to change into to.  Modest swimsuits.  Towel. Shoes for the thrill rides.  Sunscreen.
**Everyone needs a new 2012-2013 Medical Release Form filled out.  I will try to get it mosaic’s website this week.  If not, email me and I can email you a copy of it.  As always, we will have some ready to fill out the morning of.
Glimpse Into The Future
We’re going camping at the beach in August 20-21st.  Cape Lookout in Tillamook, OR.  It’s $35 as well.  Mark it on your calendar.
