Dear Parents,

Websites and Articles of Interest to Parents:

Children’s Six-hour Screen Day
Walt Mueller Review of Christless Christianity

Upcoming Events:

GORF- Middle School Trip to Iowa/Nebraska Christian Convention
  • We’re leaving THIS Friday by 11am, and will return no later than 4pm on Sunday, February 1. Please be at Eastview by 10:30 so we can load and leave promptly at 11.
  • We’re staying at the Holiday Inn Downtown Omaha, the site of the Convention. This Holiday Inn is also the home of “Coco Key Water Resort”, a 6000 square foot water park...make sure your kids bring their swim gear!
  • We have 4 students going, Beth Frederick, Brianna Scott, Kyle Hoback and Tyler Wright.

Lincoln Christian College and Seminary Campus Visit
  • Seniors only!
  • We’ll leave Sunday after church (exact time to be determined), drive to Lincoln, sleep in the dorm and spend Monday checking out the campus. We’ll be home Monday evening.
  • Cost is $30 for a few meals, and any spending money.
  • Please let me know by the end of this week if your student is going.
A little further down the road...Summer 2009 Ministry Events

Mission: Kansas 2009 June 28-July 3 2009
  • We’ll be talking about our upcoming Mission:Kansas mission trip, and the possibility of making it a “middle school only” trip. Do you have an opinion on the matter? We want to hear it, and our February ministry team meeting is the place to talk about it.
Summer Camp 2009
  • Camp season 2009 is right around the corner. This week at youth group, the kids will each get a handout with some specific information about their camp weeks. We’re doing this now because we want your kids to go to camp!
CIY Summer Conference July 27-August 1 2009
  • CIY’s summer conference is just for high schoolers. We have 5 high school graduates for whom this will be their last chance to attend as a student, and at least that many new freshman (for 2009-2010) that can go for the first time.
  • I can’t think of a better send-off for our senior or a better welcome for our freshmen than CIY. It is an intense week of spiritual challenge and growth. They won’t want to miss it.

Have a great week!
