Middle School Updates

You should receive parent information in the mail with all the information you need for this year’s UpGrade. The dates are as follows:

Incoming 6th Graders, August 2-3,
Incoming 7th Graders, August 7-8 and
Incoming 8th Graders, July 31- August 1

UpGrades are 24-hour, grade specific experiences that gives your student an inside track to all the great things that are happening in Vineyard Student Ministries. This year we will be lodging at The Avenue in Tipp City, doing an outreach near Dayton and swimming at Splash Moraine. The $20 cost includes three meals, activities, lodging and transportation for the entire 24 hours.

There is a skatepark at The Avenue... but you must have a helmet and signed parent waiver.

Download the REGISTRATION FORM here!
If you would like more information please contact Eric or myself. The last day to register is the Sunday before each UpGrade.

Make sure you don’t waste your summer! We have a ton of things going on each week for Middle School Students. Breakfast@11 is every Wednesday (at Riley’s Restaurant in Greenhills) and Thrusday (at Panera, in Tri-County). Also, we are going to Kings Island each Tuesday at 9am (meeting at the church). For more information on these events contact Eric Stoner.

Hope has been teaching Reagan several “tricks” this summer. This is one of my favorites. Reagan turned two in May and he is filling our summer with so much joy. See the video here!
