Please email Nick at for questions.

Wyld Life leadership is scheduled for 4:00 at the block house this Sunday. (may be subject to change call Nick for confirmation 443-286-5886)

Wyld Life will be held next friday 12.9.11 and the youth group Christmas Party will be held next Sunday night 12.11.11. The Christmas Party will be held in the block house. Bring a wrapped gag gift as usual and we will have a super-fun gift exchange.

At this point we're going to cancel the X-Factor scheduled for December 18th. (The Hathaways will be going caroling. Call me if you're interested.)

I, Nick, will be preaching at Gracepoint, a PCA church in Glen Burnie, this weekend. Their pastor is in his 3rd round of chemo and our session has directed me to assist them. I know that Gracepoint would appreciate prayers for their pastor in this time. I will not be at worship in the morning but will be back at church for the afternoon concert.

Wyld Life, Flag Football, and Fall Festival

Wyld Life Octoberfest! This Friday from 7-9pm middle school students from all over are welcome to join us for a fun evening of games, songs, and smashing pumpkins. I will be talking about why I'm convinced there is a God, so it's a good night to bring a non-Christian friend along. Hosted by Liberty Christian School in the gym. Parents, youth always appreciate snacks if you bring them.

X-Factor: Flag Football. This Sunday night from 7-8:30 for middle school and high school students. Wear your sneakers, not your cleats. We'll play some flag football and then continue our series on "How things get fixed."

Fall Festival. October 28th from 5:30-8pm. This is a great event that reaches out to bless hundreds in our community. We'll have games, candy, a petting zoo, moonbounce, gaga, bonfire, and a snack bar (to benefit the Costa Rica mission trip.) We need all sorts of help to make this event a success. We need candy and lots of it. Please bring it up to the church this weekend. We could use any mums, pumpkins, cornstalks, or hay you will let us borrow for decoration (and then we'll give it back.) We also primarily need volunteers to help the middle schoolers help the little kids with the games. If you're interested please see me after church in the back of the main sanctuary this sunday.

first F.I.S.H. and parents' meeting

What are you passionate about? Chances are you talk about it; you can't help it. Whether it's Ravens football, Band camp, Airsoft weaponry, or the latest novel, you naturally talk and exude excitement about whatever you love. What if we loved God so much that we couldn't help but talk about him? That's what evangelism is like. A person whose heart is so captivated by Christ that he or she can't help but talk about the Lord.
This year in F.I.S.H. (fellowship in studen'ts homes) we'll be training high school students for evangelism just like we have in the past. This year we'll be working on sharing the gospel in our own words, through our own story, in our own book, speaking out of our own passion for Christ. The first Sunday night of each month we'll be meeting at some student's house to hang, chat, munch, drink, play, write and read. Each youth will be given a journal to practice writing whatever the prompt is for the evening and then...we'll share what we've written.
F.I.S.H. will meet this sunday September 4th from 7-9m at 2608 Amanda Court Woodstock MD 21163. (at Claire's.) It's for high school students though parents are always welcome to come.

Standing Parents' Meeting in the downstairs hallway this Sunday after church.
I wanted a chance to explain to parents what's going on this fall for youth at Liberty and be available to answer questions and hear concerns...and to pray for the youth ministry this fall. So immediately after the worship service this sunday September 4th please come down to the hallway around the youth bulletin board and we will have a brief, standing meeting. I really value your presence and contributions.

Car Wash & Bake Sale this Saturday April 16th 8am-noon

The Summer Missions team needs your help! We will be having our Car Wash here at the church this Saturday to raise money for our trip to Joni and Friends Spruce Lake Family Camp. We're trying to help families with special needs children, so help us help them. Here's how you can help: 1) Come wash cars with us. Come to the church at 8am and bring a sponge and a towel. 2) Come get your car washed. And make a donation if you feel so moved. Or buy a baked good. 3) Make something! Either make a poster that says Free Car Wash or make a baked good that we can sell at our stand. 4) Pray for us! The team needs your prayers that God would work in us and through us to bless one another and to bless others. Pray for us by name: Chris, Heidi, and Kelly Bohmer, Nick Case, Peter Crowe, Sarah Hancock, Nick and Aiden Hathaway, Barbara Hunzeker, and Peggy Walker (who will be going on a different week than us.)

Gospel Journey starts tomorrow!

Hey middle schoolers and high schoolers don't miss this! We're starting a new video series where a jew, a mormon, a muslim, a new ager, a buddhist, and a seventh day adventist go on a trip to Maui and have lots of spiritual conversations with evangelist Greg Steir. It's an engaging show and we'll actually be using it to train ourselves how to share the gospel in these situations.
7-8:30pm this sunday at the block house. Of course we'll have games, and worship and hanging out. Parents are always welcome to come join us. Oh and bring your bible if you've got one.

Also, Wyld life leaders, we're not going to have Wyld life leadership this weekend. The plan is to try for right after church on Superbowl Sunday. Feb 6 1pm at the Hathaway home.

Also parents, this is a heads up that we will be having a joint youth and parents informational meeting on February 6th during sunday school.
