Eastview Parent Weekly, May 31-June 6 2009

Dear Parents,

Today is the day! If you are hoping to get your kids to NEICSC sometime this summer, TODAY is the last day that the cheaper rates apply. Remember, if you want to use student accounts or scholarship funds, I MUST sign the registration form. Registration forms MUST be postmarked with today’s date. There are great things being planned at camp. We hope your kids will be joining us!

Today is also the due date for scholarship requests to be turned in for CIY Summer Conference. I’ll be here at Eastview most of the afternoon. Please get these turned in to me TODAY!

Next Wednesday night, June 10, is our final youth group for the year. We’ll be traveling to Alburnett for a year-end cookout at the home of one of our youth leaders, Betty Dickerson. Transportation will leave Eastview at 5:30 and we’ll be back by 8:30. If you cannot be here by 5:30, you’re welcome to join us in Alburnett. If it rains, we’ll meet at Eastview and eat here.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve dropped all sorts of hints about changes coming to our youth program for the 2009-2010 school year. We are looking at separating our group, and moving high school youth group night to Sunday night from 6-8, and keeping middle school youth group night on Wednesday night at it’s current time. This would eliminate our Sunday night d-group study. To see the thoughts behind the switch, click on the “Change is Coming” link to the right. I would love to hear your thoughts, questions and concerns. I was asked the other day if this was a “done deal”. The honest answer is “no”. Our ministry team is meeting this Saturday, from 9am-noon. While we have many things on the agenda, this will be a large part of the meeting. After the conversation, our ministry team members will decide if we are going to pursue it further and make a recommendation to that effect. After that, we’ll take a few weeks to pray through it, and a decision will be made by our July ministry team meeting so we can communicate these changes. Again, we would love to hear your thoughts, so please, contact me this week, prior to Saturday. If you’d like to attend the meeting and be a part of the discussion, please let me know that as well.

Have a great week.
