Youth Overnights in January

2015-11-13 09.23.35Some of the best bonding and fun that we have in youth groups happens during Lock-Ins (overnights held in the church building). At these events we eat, worship, watch movies, play hide and seek, and also get at least a little sleep.

In the dark days of January we will have three youth overnights:

High School group, "The End of the World Party", January 6-7th

Middle School Group (DATE CHANGE), January 14th-15th

OWL Class Group, January 20-21st

For all of these overnight, youth need to RSVP and obtain a signed parent permission slip. Email dre@ouuc.org to RSVP.
