    Back-to-School Youth Group Pool Party: August 5th

    Sunday, August 5th

    Beat the heat of summer, have some fun and join us for the Youth Group’s Back-to-School Pool Party on Sunday, August 5th, at the Lail’s pool, located just two houses down from the church. All middle school students should be dropped off at the church between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m. They will be walked to the pool by some of our adult leaders. Middle School students will have time in the pool from 3:30 to 5:30. They will eat dinner from 5:30 to 6, and be brought back to the church for pick-up at 6:15 p.m. High school students will pool time from 5:30 to 7:30, and may be dropped off and picked up at the pool.

    Dinner is a hamburger and hot dog cookout and will be served to both groups from 5:30 to 6 p.m. next to the pool. We are asking parents and youth to bring a side dish to share. This is a great time to bring a friend to Youth Group and show them how much fun we have, introduce them to Christian friends, and help them meet some great adults who are there every week for our youth. Don’t forget your towel, swimsuit (appropriate), sunscreen, and a change of clothes. And the side dish! If you have any questions, please contact David Burchett, Director of Youth Ministries, by e-mail at dburchett@duluthumc.org, or call 770-476-3776, ext. 119.
