The world around us is filled with hidden object lessons and analogies that make spiritual truths come alive. Wednesday, June 20th, instead of the normal River time, we will be meeting at 5pm to head up to Mt. Eerie in Anacortes, WA. In this beautiful location, we will have time for LifeGroups to sightsee, rappel (optional) and hike while incorporating illustrations related to life and faith.
This event is weather dependent so stay tuned to River updates for the latest.
Bring: Signed release form (required, download here for minor and here for over 18), sturdy hiking or athletic shoes and a jacket.

Snowday is coming up Friday, March 2nd! We are going up for Friday afternoon/night skiing & boarding at Stevens Pass! Visit www.stevenspass.com for details of the mountain. Basically, lift tickets are $45 per person unless you are 15 or under and then it’s $40. Other information about rentals, etc, are listed there.
To get there when the afternoon session starts, we will need to meet/leave around 1:30pm on Friday. The session ends at 10pm but we may only stay til 9pm depending on how everyone is feeling. That would put us back about 11pm. We’ll work together for carpooling and have a great time on the slopes together! If you can go, contact Luke.
The Annual RIVER Christmas Party! Here are the details:
When: This Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 6 to 9pm (take note! Early start and late finish!!)
Where: Meeting at Atonement, then driving in the Arlington area for a flash-mob adventure, then back to church for the rest of the time.
What: A fun-filled adventure, then food, fellowship, crazy white elephant gift exchange and lots of fun!
Bring: (every person should also bring these two things!)
1. Bring costumes, if you have them and a nice warm coat!
2. A wrapped “white elephant” gift – The gift should be for someone at youth group. It should be a “white elephant gift” that is wrapped (or gift-bagged). A “white-elephant gift” is one that can be valuable…or can be not so valuable. It can be practical…or not so practical. It can be something someone would want…or something funny that they probably might not want. It can be anything from: a dvd movie…to hair growth treatment…to a coffee mug with candy in it…to a squirt gun…to a gift card….to pickled pigs feet…a box of candy, etc. It should not be something obviously used. It should be new or in like new condition. It’s best if it’s something you would like to receive.
Don’t be late! Come a little early! We will be leaving on the adventure at the beginning and it will be a lot of fun, so don’t miss it!
