Summer is right around the corner, and before it officially gets here, I would like to take a moment to let you know about all the excitement that is coming up!
First of all, we have our promotions coming this Sunday! If your child is a new Kindergarten, 5th or 6th grade student, they may go to their new classes beginning this Sunday in the 9:00 hour. If they are not here for the 9:00, but are here for 10:15, new kindergarten students may come to the Trailhead, and 6th grade students may attend the adult service. For 6th grade students, the middle school does have a section where they sit together (look for Pastor Aaron), or they may sit with their parents. If at any time, anyone is unsure of where to go, you can ask myself, their previous teacher, any other pastor, usher or greeter where to go.
We’ve got some amazing summer activities on tap this year! First of all, Young Champions is coming up fast. Mark your calendars for July 25-28. Registration is online at www.PCCtoday.com or you can register on paper using the brochures that will be coming out soon. Young Champions is an awesome track and field clinic where kids learn not only track and field skills but also how to be a true champion. Cost is $20 per child with a maximum of $60 per family. Invite a friend!
Royal Ranger Powwow
For so many boys, this is the highlight of their summer. Activities include rock-climbing wall, zip line, bb guns, canoeing, batting cages, paintball and more! They will also hear from a great speaker and come away changed by the power of God. Powwow takes place at Camp Wildcat near Corvallis. Boys going into grades 2-5 may attend without a male adult coming with them, younger kids must have a male adult chaperone (dad, uncle, grandfather etc) August 11-14, cost: $110 per boy.
Kids going into grades 3rd -6th are invited to join us at Kids Camp August 15-19, at Kellogg Springs, in Sutherlin, Oregon. At Kellogg Springs, the kids will be treated to amazing speakers (Jenni and Jeff Smith from Horizon Community Church in Tualatin), zip line, pool, archery, and much more. For sign ups, see Pastor Brad. Space is limited, so sign up soon. Cost: $225 per child.
M’s Club Girls Camp
All girls between 1st-5th grade are invited to Girls Camp at Driftwood Creek Camp in Lincoln City. Suzie Star will be our guest speaker and she will knock it out of the park! This will be an amazing time for the girls to connect with other girls, worship God, and be challenged in their relationship with Him. Cost $90 per girl.

If your child wants to participate in any of these activities, but cost is a factor, don’t fret! Scholarships are available. I don’t ever want for a child to be hindered from doing something because of money. For more information on any of these activities, email me at email@example.com.
Have an awesome summer, I hope to see everyone at at least one of these events!
