Houseboats & Boomers

We are in the process of churning out the August Mid-Month Update, and as we do that I want to take a quick moment to sound the bullhorn for a couple events, one for middle school and one for high school.

Middle School Day of Awesomeness at Boomers in Livermore (forms & details are here)

This is for all middle school students (students who will be in middle school for the 2011-2012 school year) and is the first middle school event the new 6th graders can attend. We meet at LOPC on Friday, August 19th at 11am (we get back to the church at 4pm) and head to Livermore for a day full of go-karts, bumper boats, lazer tag, mini-golf, pizza, and games. It is pretty much just awesome. It is a day of awesomeness. While we are there we have unlimited activity and video game play, plus you get to hang out with your friends, catch up after the summer, and meet new people while you race them on the speedway or team up with them to completely soak Zach and/or Brie in the boat moat. The cost is only $20 and includes free gameplay as well as lunch. This kind of awesomeness only comes along once a year – come on out and be awesome with us!

And just for kicks, here’s a picture of Brie, trying to look like she didn’t lose the war out on the vicious bumper boat waters.

The High School Weekend Houseboat Retreat (forms & details are here)

The weekend after Labor Day (September 9-11) we head out to the Delta for an incredible time on houseboats. This weekend is all about connecting: connecting with friends after summer, connecting you the sunshine, connecting with awesome jumps off of the boat, connecting with each other in small group discussions… the list could go on (we just hope you avoid connecting your face to the water while water skiing or wake boarding). This is the perfect way to take a break after the first couple weeks of school and prepare for the year to come!

Here’s the video from last year’s trip!
