Currently have 46 registered for the Blast Retreat on Nov. 7 & 8!  Awesome chaps include Greg Bass, Garren Thomas, Teresa Mims, Aileen Ramirez, Cindy Meckola, Patty Towler, Scott Stevens and myself.  Thanks so much and prayers are welcome! 

The Youth Council wants to offer an additional night to the Blast Retreat (not an up-all-night) the Friday before the retreat, Nov. 6, at the church to give youth more time to bond & grow friendships before leaving on the retreat.   This night is optional.  Details for the Friday night are still in the works but here are some initial thoughts:

1) The Additional Friday Overnight is for FBC-H youth attending the BLAST RETREAT (&/or) youth that couldn’t attend the retreat due to scheduling conflicts.  The goal of this additional night is to bond the students in our youth group and get them ready for what they will experience on the retreat. 
2) There will be a midnight curfew so they are all rested for the retreat.
3) Adults chaps are needed for this Friday night only, this is Adults willing to stay Friday night and go home Saturday morning.  I need to have my BLAST Retreat chaps well rested for the weekend! Please contact me this week if you can help in anyway.  I will be away from the church this weekend and next week.
4) Students coming Friday will need to bring $5 for pizza delivery & breakfast.   I would also recommend them bringing any snacks or drinks they would like for the evening. 
5) Remember there will be no cellular phones, tablets, or i-Pods on the Blast Retreat.  So you will need to bring a flashlight and a watch to be on time to activities.  
6) On Saturday morning around 8:00 am students will load the luggage with the goal of leaving around 8:30 am to Look Up Lodge.  Any students attending Friday night (only) should make arrangements to be picked up no later than 8:30 am. Breakfast items will be available at 7:00 am allowing a brief time for cleanup. 

Keep watch for more retreat details to come such as what time to arrive on Friday if you’re attending the additional Friday night.

CALLING ALL YOUTH: Tonight we need help breaking down the tents from World Hunger & moving boxes of clothes from Lydia's Loft to the truck going to West Virginia. We need to do this all before it rains again which is scheduled to happen this evening. If you find yourself available right after school, come on to the church! Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Breakfast, Joint Bible Study, Communion & Baptism this Sunday!

JUST A REMINDER! We plan to have breakfast & Bible study together this Sunday at 9:30am in the gym at FBCH.  We will eat about the first 30 mins, & Ron Price will lead a large group Bible study from 10:00-10:30. This means that no other adult, children’s, or youth Bible studies will meet on Sunday. So far we have 225 people signed up for breakfast & Bible study!   Worship begins at 10:45am in the sanctuary.  The Latino and Northlake congregations will join us as we celebrate Communion and Baptism.  This is going to be a KICKIN day in the Lord!  Hope to see you Sunday!
