Happy Spring Break! 

I hope you’re enjoying this BEAUTIFUL, GOLDEN SUNSHINE. Wow, it is like a little summer in March! And thanks to the 9 of you that joined us for laser tag + Luke-Dorf baskets + Froyo…it was fun!

    • Maundy Thursday Worship is the next day, and we’re going to do a REALLY COOL activity to talk about the Last Supper. We’re going in our magic time travel machine to see what it was like on that night in the Upper Room. (Did you know I’ve been there?? I’ll show you photos.)

Saturday, April 4 : Easter Egg Hunt from 9:30 am – Noon in Armitage Hall

  • Some of you have told me this is one of your FAVORITE church events of the year…it’s the egg hunt! We’ll serve breakfast (and eat), do Easter crafts with cute little kids, and we’ll hide eggs and be in charge of the hunt. It’ll be a blast!! Let me (Laurel) know if you will be there to help. Thanks!!

I don’t know about you, but summer is ON MY MIND. Last Wednesday, we played Bingo; the winners got to choose 2 of our summer activities. Winners? Hillsboro Hops Baseball + Beach Day. What are some summer things you’d like to do with the Youth Group? (Yes, Portland Thunder is on my mind.)    >Email all of your ideas here> Laurel (at) valleycommunity . org

Enjoy the rest of your week off! Thank God for gorgeous weather, times to relax and for great people in your life to spend time with!!
