All youth 6th grade through 2017 graduates are invited to the Nord home (610 Haglin. Ave., Cameron) Friday, August 11th for our August Pizza & Game Night 6:00pm-9:00pm.

If the weather is nice and we have enough youth, we may try to get a game of Ultimate Frisbee going.

Invite your friends and come enjoy a night of food and games.

Beach & BBQ

All youth that finished 6th Grade through those who just graduated are invited to join the Soul Garage for our July Beach & BBQ Youth Event at Silver Lake Wednesday, July 26th 5:00pm-8:00pm!

This is a FREE event with food, games, swimming, and water sports.  If you have never tried waterskiing or kneeboarding or tubing, this is a great time to try it out.  We will have at least one boat to pull people.

9 Square in the Air will also be happening.

Remember to bring modest swim wear (ladies: no bikinis unless t-shirt over top, one-piece or tankini style are great; gentlemen: no speedos, regular swim shorts or board shorts are great).

Since July is the start of our 2017-2018 Ministry Year, everyone needs to fill out an updated Medical Release Form and a Permission Form.  You can find those on our website by clicking HERE.

Bring your friends!

 

Scavenger Hunt Rescheduled!

Image Source: https://www.neso.org/nesonyc-exhibit-hall-selfie-scavenger-hunt/
Due to the inclement weather forecasted for most of the day Wednesday, we are rescheduling the 2017 Soul Garage Scavenger Hunt to Thursday of this week.  That is Thursday, June 29th.
The event will begin at 5:00pm with food at the Soul Garage.  Instructions and rules will start at 5:30pm, so please do your best to arrive as close to 5:00pm as possible to eat before instructions.  We plan to be done about 8:30pm back at the Soul Garage.
This scavenger hunt will take place all across the town of Rice Lake.  Various youth leaders will be driving the vehicles.  Each vehicle will form a team.  There will be life lines provided to help groups that get stuck.  No speeding allowed.  The winning group will be the group that successfully solves the riddles and clues for their group leading them from one location to the next until one group finds the FINAL DESTINATION.  At that point, the game will be over and all groups will be contacted by text message with instructions to return immediately to headquarters (aka The Soul Garage).  Upon return, we will have some treats for all to enjoy and share stories of the adventures we had.
Students who have cell phones or smart phones are encouraged to bring them with a significant charge to their battery as they WILL be able to use technology to help them solve the riddle and to “phone a friend”.  At least one team member per team is required to have a smart phone with the Google Maps app downloaded as that will be used to communicate between each team and the Game Master back at the church.  If you have space on your device, you are encouraged to download the Google Maps app before arriving at the Soul Garage Thursday evening.  Only one per team needs to have it, but teams will not be formed until Thursday evening.
Please consider inviting friends to this event.  It will be a fun relationship-building event with a little bit of adventure and puzzle-solving involved.  There will be some great food and some sweets to enjoy.

For food planning purposes, please text Pastor Tony ASAP to confirm you are attending and if you are bringing any friends.  715.642.5132

Please help spread the word!

Final Youth Group for the School Year

Wednesday, May 24th is the final youth group of the school year at the Soul Garage.  We have a full night of fun, food and activities planned.  We hope you can join us!

Come early to enjoy some food (chicken enchiladas, chips & shave ice) and extra game time starting any time after 6:00pm.

We will also be taking our annual group photo shortly after 7:00pm, so make sure you are there to get in on the photo for the wall.

If you have not attempted to escape from our escape room yet, come by 5:45pm to join the group going through the room.

We also have an End of Year Survey that can be taken online.  We would love to have all the youth fill this out before the end of the day Wednesday.  You can do it on your own or take 5-10 minutes during the night to fill out the survey using your own smart phone or using one of the computers we will have set up.  This will give us helpful feedback as we work to improve the ministry.  Here is the link to the survey: https://www.cognitoforms.com/TheSoulGarage1/EndOfYearSurvey

If you would like to add a little EXTRA fun to your night, take the dress up challenge and come dressed up like one of your favorite youth leaders!

Palm Sunday Breakfast 2017

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

All youth are invited to join us in helping serve the church breakfast on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at Maranatha Evangelical Free Church.  Thanks to all who have helped with the preparations so far!  We are excited to continue this fun tradition and hope you will be part of it with us.

There are two Sunday shifts.  Youth are encourage to serve one shift and attend service during the other time.

  • Shift 1: 6:45am-10:15am
  • Shift 2: 10:00am-2:00pm

Youth are encouraged (not required) to wear black bottom (pants/slacks/dress/skirt) and a white top.  If you do not have something like this or did not see the notice in time, try to wear a dark bottom and a light top.  Dark blue jeans would work if you don’t have black.

Please wear comfortable shoes as there will be a lot of walking around as we serve breakfast to an estimated 300 people.

Don’t forget to bring a smile and a friendly personality and positive attitude.

See you there!
