The Annual RIVER Christmas Party! Here are the details:
When: This Monday, December 16, 2019, 5 to 9pm (take note! Early start and late finish!!)
Where: Meeting at Atonement, then driving to Everett Skate Rink
What: A skating adventure, then food, fellowship, crazy Christmas gift exchange and lots of fun!
Bring: (every person should also bring these three things!)
1. Bring a nice warm coat as skating will be cold!
2. $5 for the night 3.A wrapped Christmas gift – The gift should be for someone at youth group. The gift should be 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 for skating at the beginning and it will be a lot of fun, so don’t miss it!
It’s an end-of-summer trip, just before a new school year – an opportunity for fellowship and fun, but also devotions, prayer and refocusing.
We plan to leave Wednesday morning to a lodge in Plain for worship, devotions, prayer, activities, meals and rest that night. The next morning, we will go over to a water park in Chelan for the day, heading back home after supper, arriving in the evening.
—What: 36 hour retreat outing for River youth.
—When: August 14-15. Wednesday morning to Thursday evening. We will meet at church at 8:00am on Wednesday and get back about 7:30pm on Thursday.

Here are some notes for the upcoming weeks…
River Campfire Night Tomorrow Night (7/3)
We have lots of special nights planned throughout the summertime.
Tomorrow night will be a special format called “Campfire” with sharing, worship, activities, etc.
It will be at Church at the normal time of 6:30pm.
Free Italian sodas!
Same as last summer, sports are going to be organized on the front lawn before River from 6:00-6:30pm. (although rain is forecasted tomorrow)
Kayak Point Next Week (7/10)
We’re going to head out to Kayak Point NEXT Wednesday (July 10th) for our youth meeting! We’re going to leave earlier than usual…..at 6:00pm. So aim to be here a few minutes before 6pm. With the travel time we will finish an hour later than usual so we won’t make it back til 9pm. This is always a favorite as it’s such a beautiful setting and great time. Pass the news on to others who might not know. You might also want to bring a jacket as being by the water sometimes makes things are a little cooler.
No Youth Group July 17th (7/17) Due to LeadTheCause trip
Be praying for this special mission and training time!
River Meeting on the Deck (7/24)
We will have River on our (Luke and Summer’s) deck Wednesday, July 24th. It will be a relaxed time with volleyball, songs, stories, testimonies and such. Meet at church at 6:10pm to be shuttled to our house in vans due to limited parking at our place.
If youth are being dropped off, they are welcome to be dropped off directly at our house 6:20pm. Our address is 17013 71st Dr NE, Arlington. It is about 1 minute from church.
Upcoming: Annual RIVER BBQ and 7th Grade Welcome!
The 7th Grade Welcome and Annual Barbecue is coming up in the month of August! Stay tuned for the date.
This is always a fun event of games, food, traditions and a special welcome of all the new 7th graders into River!!
Hamburgers will be on the grill and lots of good stuff!
See you tomorrow!
Join us for our next Breakthrough event this Wednesday! You don’t have to have seen the movie to come hear truths related to breakthroughs. Bring a friend along for this awesome time of digging into how God works in our lives and helps us to see what he has in store for us!
