The Skinny: August 12, 2018
Headlines & Sunday Announcements
FRIDAY, AUG 17 – SUNDAY, AUG 19
Calling all youth! Join us for this year’s Urban Camp In at Warehouse! From 5pm Friday thru 2pm Sunday we’ll be bunking down at the church at night, and serving our community during the days. We plan to show lots of love to Ashley Park and Changed Choices, and we want you along for the fun. Register today!
Want to volunteer? You could be an overnight chaperone, a photographer, part of the meal set-up teams, a travel helper, or a counselor!
This is a great opportunity for folks who don’t normally get to interact with these young people to see all the fun we’re having, and how the Warehouse Students community loves to serve and live out Jesus’ command to love our neighbors. If you want to be a part of this catalytic event, email Henry.
Each week in August we’re watching a movie and then talking on Sunday about the cultural collisions we find in them. This week it’s Coco, the 2018 Academy Award winner for Best Animated Film and Best Song. You can find it on Netflix, iTunes, and Redbox.
OR, you could watch it for free at Movies in The Park in Mt. Holly this Saturday night at 7PM!
