Youth Unite and Excursion

G’day parents,

If you’re getting this  message on Friday arvo, this is a last minute reminder that Youth Unite is tonight at 7pm.

Also at short notice is a chance to go to a play staring one of our year 10s. Their school is putting it on with Scotch College which means it’s going to be in a very nice (expensive) auditorium.

Click here for details. We need to get your RSVP but this Monday afternoon (May 8th) if you’re coming!

Bye for now.

Youth Unite Mid Year Event – May 5

G’day Parents,

Three times a year we meet up with other youth ministries in the Northern Suburbs for an all-in event called Youth Unite. They are a really positive example of people from all different backgrounds getting together because of Jesus and I expect this one to be no exception.

Click here to see the Facebook event which has the details. Diamond Valley Baptist are hosting this time, they are literally in the same street as our church, just a couple of minutes down the road, so we’ll just meet there rather than car pooling from St. John’s.

No need to RSVP this time due to no car pool.

It should be a great night, we hope as many St. John’s youth as possible can be there.

Youth Unite Tonight + Life Groups and Trivia

G’day Parents,

I’ve posted about Youth Unite before but it’s on tonight so thought I’d mention it one last time.

Life Groups. If you’ve registered for a group then it’s likely that you’ve heard from me or a leader already. If not, please drop me an email (kirk@stjohnsdc.org.au). Is it too late to join a group? Never! Just let us know you’re keen and we’ll see what we can do.

Trivia! At 5pm on Sundays (school and public holidays excluded) we have pre-service activities. Every second week it’s dinner but on the other weeks we do other stuff. This Sunday we’ve got some Trivia fun times planned. Click here for the Facebook event.

Oh, and don’t forget Camp Crave 🙂

Coming to Camp Crave? Please register

G’day Parents,

This coming Sunday the Camp Crave leaders will be gathering to plan the camp. At this stage, still a few weeks out, we do not have enough registrations for the camp to go ahead.

I’m writing to request that IF you know your youth are coming to camp, could you please register them this week? That way when we start planning, we know the camp is going ahead and have a snapshot of who will be attending.

Obviously some families will still be working out if and who will be coming and we understand that completely.

You can register by clicking here.

If you intend to register but are waiting to ensure you have enough money in the bank, could you please email me and let me know? kirk@stjohnsdc.org.au

P.S. Don’t forget Youth Unite is on this Friday.

Life Groups Update

G’day parents,

This Thursday night we will meet as a leadership team and lock in the life group allocations for this year. Soon after that you will hear from group leaders about your kid/s’ first group meeting and related details.

As always, there were no times/locations that perfectly suit everyone. None-the-less we have done our best to run groups at times where the most possible people can attend every week.

We are keen to work with families to make the trickier time slots work so please do give me a call if the group your kid/s end up in makes things tricky for your family. 9438 1264 (Tues, Wed or Fri).

Also, Camp Crave is less than a month away. Please register ASAP if you know you are coming. If you’re not sure, I highly recommend it and invite questions if you have them. Camp is great.

Click here to read about and register for camp.

Also, Youth Unite is even closer, Friday 26th Feb. If you can RSVP for that event it really helps us out. You can still come if you don’t be we really appreciate it.

Youth Unite – Feb 24

G’day Parents,

Three times a year we meet up with other youth ministries in the Northern Suburbs for an all-in event called Youth Unite. I’m increasingly appreciating these nights the longer I am a part of St. John’s. They are a really positive example of people from all different backgrounds getting together because of Jesus.

No event is perfect but Youth Unite has so much going for it, I highly recommend you get your youth along to all three events this year.

Here’s the details.

  • Start time: 6:30 drop off at St. John’s (61 Main St. Diamond Creek, we’ll car pool from there.)
  • End time: 10pm pick up (we may organise to drop youth home if possible but we’ll call ahead if we do)
  • Host Location: Uni Hill Church Bundoora (you can take your youth straight there at 7pm if you like).
  • Food: Supper provided
  • Cost: $5

It should be a great night, we hope as many St. John’s youth as possible can be there.

P.S. If you haven’t done so already, please register your kid/s for a life group here. Leaders will be in touch with groups in the next two weeks.
