Here is a high-level overview of our five15 events in the month of May:
Saturday, May 12 - five15 Senior Night
We will be recognizing and celebrating God's grace as this year's senior class gets ready to graduate from high school. We'll hear testimonies, put together card boxes for seniors, and pray for them.
Additionally, Dean Adamek, Director of Rancho 3M, and his son, Taylor, will be in town that weekend and will be joining us at five15 on Saturday. Dean will share with us his perspective on our recent trip to the Ranch, as well as upcoming opportunities to serve at the Ranch.
I'll also take a moment during our announcements to give you a brief forecast of what we'll be doing for five15 summer meetings.
Saturday, May 19 - Manskool
This will be the last Manskool meeting of the 2011-2012 ministry year. I've been speaking with some Manskool dads and sons about ideas for next year and I look forward to discussing these as a group at our upcoming meeting.
Saturday, May 26 - Rising 7th Grader Orientation
Our annual Rising 7th Grader Orientation will be held at 5:00 pm at the church, just before our annual five15 cookout. This will allow the rising 7th graders to immediately get their feet wet in five15 by joining us at the cookout. Let me encourage you to be mindful of these "five15 rookies" who will be stepping into the five15 world for the first time that evening. Let's seek to welcome them in every way possible. If you have a rising 7th grader and did not receive an email invitation to this event, please let me know.
Saturday, May 26 - five15 Cookout
Join us at the five15 cookout for food and fun! Ultimate frisbee, volleyball, burgers, hot dogs, and more. Our start time will be 6:30 pm. There will not be pizza beforehand as we'll instead be eating from 6:30 pm and on as part of the cookout.
