Youth Group Overnight Lock-in

Saturday, April 26, 8 pm–Sunday, April 27, 10:00 am
We’ll be having fun while exploring questions of faith and spirituality, using music and a movie to help us think about and further flesh out our beliefs.

The dinner plan is make-your-own pizzas, so we’ll be asking attendees to bring toppings as well as contribute something for breakfast the next morning. Please also plan to bring a sleeping bag (or sheets and a blanket), a pillow, sweats (or something else that’s comfortable but modest) to sleep in and clean clothes for Sunday morning.

We’ll be attending the 8:30 am Holy Eucharist at Grace before everyone leaves on Sunday morning. We’ll be sleeping in the sanctuary (we’ll be using partitions to create 4 sleeping areas, one for girls, one for boys, one for female chaperons and one for male chaperons).

Please feel free to contact Jeanne (202-365-0423 or jeanne@jeajen.com) for more information.
