Summer Zone time is here, and it is going to be a sweet one this year. Our theme is based on the movie, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” we are calling it, “The Sweet Factory and the Search for the Golden Ticket.” The Bible verse for our theme will be Psalm 34:8, which says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” Our church is getting turned into a candy factory! Now that is something to get excited about! Our decorating will include things like a chocolate waterfall, giant size lollipops, candy, cupcakes, and a gumball machine just to name a few sweet things. I am getting hungry for chocolate just thinking about this! Throughout the week there will be characters from the movie like Oompa Loompas, Charlie, Willy Wonka, and the winners of the five golden tickets found in the Wonka bars. We have pulled some great themes from the movie to teach the youth each night. Our themes for each night are seeking God, real hope, finding God, temptation, and being rewarded for our obedience to God. The ages are the same as in previous years going through the 12th grade, except we are beginning with youth who are age 4 by Summer Zone instead of starting at age 3. As we put the finishing touches on the decorations, and this ministry, please come help us finish up on Wednesday, July 11 from 6:00-8:00 PM. Shirts will be available to order once again this year. If you would like a shirt please sign-up on the form in the back of the sanctuary by Tuesday, July 17 (Youth and adult sizes are available, please specify on the order sheet if the shirt is tor a youth or adult.) If you would like to help out with Summer Zone please talk to me, Matt Sickmeir, as soon as possible. We are still in need of crew leaders and extra helpers. Please join us in praying for a great week of ministry and fun for the youth who come, for the staff members, and for the parents of the youth who come. We hope to see all of you, and all of your children and grandchildren at Summer Zone this year! Help us get the word out about Summer Zone by telling neighbors, friends, and family members about this awesome outreach ministry going on at our church.
Looking forward to one sweet Summer Zone this year!
Youth Man Matt
