Hello, parents! We are so excited for the Christmas season at North. This is always a special time of year. It’s a chance to give and serve so that we can see people experience life change through Jesus Christ. We have lot of exciting things happening in student ministry as we head into the new year. Please mark your calendars for the upcoming dates and make note of the E2 schedule times taking place throughout the month. After the Christmas break, we will be kicking off with the Winter Kickoff and then Snow Camp will be just around the corner. We just want to say thank you for allowing us the privilege to partner with your family to make a difference in the life of your student. We want nothing else than to equip and encourage your student to experience life change through Jesus Christ. As we head into December, on behalf of the entire E2 Student Ministry we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This will be taking place during our regularly scheduled Sunday morning programming. The Tween party will be during the first service and the Teen party will be during the second service. We will have breakfast, play games, and spend time together celebrating the Christmas season. We encourage all students to where appropriate Christmas pajamas.
E2 Winter Kickoff
On Sunday night January 7th, we are having our E2 Winter Kickoff. The event will be for the entire family. There will be laser tag, games, food, and giveaways. This is also a great night to talk about the upcoming year and what you can expect in student ministry. On this night, you can learn about upcoming events, what we’re teaching your students, and even meet your students small group leader. Please mark your calendar and make plans for this great night.
Snow Camp is just around the corner, and it is not too late to sign your student up. Snow Camp will be January 12th - January 15th. The event is for students in the 8th-12th grade and the cost is $200. Registration forms can be found on the church website, on the North App, or on Floor One. If you want to lock in your student’s spot, all you have to do is turn in the registration and a $50 deposit. We’re looking forward to a great trip in January.
With the cost of summer camps, we have come up with a new budget system to help families. If the cost of camp is too high for your family, you can be a part of our financial assistance program and work fundraisers throughout the year to help offset the cost of camp for your student.
