Opportunities for Families, Children and Youth:
Please note important deadlines.
All Church Retreat, April 27-29, 2018: This 3rd annual retreat for Evergreen members and friends takes place at Living Rivers Retreat and Conference Center on the Cahaba River. It is a fun weekend of worshiping God, exploring nature, and fellowshipping with friends, old and new. Save the date for this retreat. Details about sign up and cost will be forthcoming.
High School Montreat Conference, June 3-9, 2018: Rising 9th-12th graders are encouraged to attend Montreat Youth Conference. The Evergreen youth travel together to Montreat on Sunday, rent a house for the week, and spend the week worshiping God, growing in faith, and sharing a lot of laughter! More information about this years conference can be found here: http://www.montreat.org/youth1/?tab=event_rates_registration. Total cost for the conference is $265 before January 18. Rate increases monthly following.
Music and Worship Conference, June 17-22, 2018: A fun, family friendly conference for ALL ages! This conference is great for elementary through adult ages and the Montreat Clubs are a great option for preschoolers who aren't quite old enough for the conference. You can find ALL the details about the conference here: https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/c5003d_d2aa84d04d0f4cb1a5e7b723c1267081.pdf
The most important thing to realize about this conference is the cost increases starting January 5. If you already know you are going to go you can pay the $100 deposit to hold your spot to secure the lower fee. You can pay the balance closer to the conference. Deadline for the first price is January 3 and can be secured with a $100 deposit. Final deadline for sign up is May 1.
Guatemala Mission Trip, July 7-14, 2018: Join other Evergreen members, Presbytery members, and friends for a week of service and relationship-building in Guatemala. We will have an informational meeting Sunday, February 4 after worship for all the details about the trip. If you are interested and have questions please contact Ashley. The church has pledged to help offset half the cost of each member and there are resources available for additional scholarship specifically for women. Don't let money be a barrier to serving in Guatemala!
There are great opportunities for every member of Evergreen in 2018. We hope you'll find a way to grow, serve, and engage in the Kingdom of God right in front of you.
