“A Ministry Preparing Extreme Disciples”

July – a very busy month for our youth!    Please check below for all we are doing this month!  We will have an intense time of fellowship, fun, food and missions.  We are gonna have some fun all during this month!  It will be great!  Invite your friends and classmates.  Let’s have a good time!  What time is it?  It’s summertime! 
We’ve changed our name!  We are AMPED.  AMPED stands for “A Ministry Preparing Extreme Disciples” and we are gonna have a good time!    
We had a great time together celebrating FREEDOM!  We had snacks, games, fireworks.  Did you miss it?  Sorry!  It’s not too late to enjoy the next fun thing on our agenda!  BOWLING!  
On Saturday, July 7 our Youth had a wonderful time together bowling.  You should have been there!   
We ALMOST made it out!  If we had been given two more minutes, we would have made it out.  But, alas, we did not!  It was great fun and we will definitely do it again.  We’d love to have you join us next time.  Your input may have been just what we needed to get out of the room in time!      
On Sunday, July 15 we spent the afternoon in the pool at the Shaffer home.  Pastor Kevin cooked up some hamburgers and hot dogs and we enjoyed each other and some fun in the sun.  Be on the look out!  We just may do this again as a back to school bash.  
Back by popular demand!  Beginning at noon this Friday, July 20 and continuing until 11am on Saturday, July 21 we are holding our much clamored for Youth Lock-In.  Bring what you need to spend the night and any fun games you might want to play.  For more details see Ms. Carrie or email her at cshaffer@myrtlelake.org.  
In an effort to “beat the heat” and just to hang out together and have FUN, we’re going ice skating.  On Thursday, July 26 from 7-9pm we will meet at Center Ice; 3182 Cypress Ridge Blvd.; Wesley Chapel 33544; 813-803-7372.  As usual, if you would like to purchase food and/or drink, please be prepared to pay for this on your own.  Parents need to pick up at 9pm.
Wrapping up our entire month of July – Summer Fun and local mission opportunities, we will have a Summer Splash at the church on Saturday, July 28 from 2pm until 6pm.  We’ll have water balloons, a slip-n-slide, other water balloon type games and hamburgers and hot dogs.  There will likely be snacks of some sort, but if you want something in particular, you should probably bring it.  For more information please contact Ms. Carrie at cshaffer@myrtlelake.org 
In addition to all the fun this summer, we are working on several local mission opportunities.  While it’s so great to have fun together, we also want to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community.  As these develop further, we will keep you updated.  Check this page often for more details as they develop.  Have a wonderful summer!
