A few things that didn't make the email:

The permission slip/information slip for CIY Discipleship is posted. Click on the "Eastview Resources" link on the left, you'll find it in the "CIY Discipleship-2008" folder there. If you have questions, please let me know.

The Annual Release Form for 2008 will be available for you to download, print, sign, and return to me. Without it, your students will not be able to participate in overnighters, trips, etc. It will be up by Friday. Please get it to me ASAP!

Josh Davis has scheduled a ski trip for January 26th at Sundown Mountain in Dubuque. Here are the details as listed on the Facebook Event that he posted:

"I plan to go skiing on January 26th and am inviting anyone who wants to go with me. Transportation is limited. If you are willing to drive, that is greatly appreciated. I plan on leaving around 2pm and skiing from 4-10ish and being home no later than midnight. The cost to go will be $46 for your rental plus spending money for food. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at"

I have strongly encouraged and supported Josh in setting this up, but please understand that this trip is in no way, shape or form an "Eastview Event." Here's what our Ministry Policy Manual has to say (in part) about "Non-Official Events":

"Non-official events…
• will never be promoted via official church publications or email addresses without a disclaimer.
• may be promoted verbally or by flyers at youth group by our students.
• should not be accredited to Eastview on any written flyers.
• might be adequately supervised or not supervised at all, depending.
• have no established conduct standards, such as what movies they may be showing.
• require parents to investigate to ensure their supervision expectations are met.
• The church assumes NO responsibility,liability or insurance obligations for such events, even if a youth sponsor attends all or part of it."

I am not trying to dissuade participation, I'm communicating with you that this is not an "official" Eastview event.
