Don't forget to turn in your 2014 medical release form and the deposit by dropping them off at the church office during business hours or in the Loft on Sundays or Wednesdays.  Check out the link below for the medical release form or you can pick up one in the Loft on Sundays or Wednesdays.

This year's theme is "Upside Down."  The world teaches students to find their identity in popularity, money or accomplishments. Jesus turns that notion on its head by telling us that it’s not about any of that stuff – it’s about the fact that we’re all loved by God.  During the Believe conference, students will look at some parables from Luke – such as the lost sheep and how God pursues them, the great banquet and how God includes them, and the good Samaritan and how God sends them to be Kingdom workers now.  Your student's understanding of God’s Kingdom will be flipped upside down!
