Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer so far. Can you believe that it is already July?! That is so crazy. We have been having a busy summer here at Hope, and I’d like to bring to your attention a few things we have coming up this month.
Last month we had our first VBS, The Great Savior’s Round-up, that was a really fun time. We also went to Noah’s Ark with TPUMM and to Annual Conference. During the last week in June, we had our first Page Flippers. The book selection for the older children and youth for July will be Wonder by R.J. Palacio.
- July 12th 9am-3pm: Our second VBS with a theme of “Around the Campfire”
- For elementary school-aged children. July 24th-27th: Adventure Day Camp for K-7th grade students hosted by TPUMM (also looking for counselors at least going into 9th grade)
- July 26th at 6pm: Page Flippers
We are planning on having a youth event that involves playing paintball at Superior Paintball on a Saturday in August. This event is for 6th-12th graders, and if you would like to participate, please suggest a few Saturdays that work for you. Thanks!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any suggestions, questions, or concerns. Have a blessed July!
Katrina Hagemeyer, CYF Director
Meet our CYF DIRECTOR, Katrina Hagemeyer. I recently graduated from UMD and currently live in Duluth. This area is so much fun because there are so many activities to do in all of the seasons. I love hiking, paddle boarding, fishing, swimming, and much more. I also love reading, sitting by fires, and relaxing with family and friends. Sharing the Lord’s word and His love is my passion, and I am so excited to start my time here and get to know the youth and families that make up Hope United Methodist Church. Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself: I can’t wait to meet people!
