In the summer, we like to give the Encounter Schedule some variety to highlight this fun time of year.
Sunday Night Study / Hoops: We are going to meet at Living Hope on Sunday night study only once a month, on those evenings when there is also Sunday Night Hoops. We will study from 6:00 – 7:00 PM, with Hoops for teens and adults running from 7:30 – 9:00 PM. Put these dates on your calendar: June 12th, July 9th, August 6th.
We are also going to continue our tradition of meeting at Caribou for Games and Bible Study. We will meet two Wednesday nights a month, at the new Caribou by the new Marcus Southbridge theater in Shakopee. Put these dates on your calendar for our Wednesday night gathering with fellowship and study at Caribou:
June 7, 21, July 12, 26, August 2, 16. We will meet from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
We are also going to gather for a night of Capture the Flag on Sunday, July 23rd. We will meet from 5:30 – 9:00 PM. We will start with dinner, and wrap up with s’mores around the campfire. But, mostly, this will be a stealthy adventure in the woods behind church. (be prepared to get dirty, and have a lot of fun). In case of bad weather, we will turn this into an epic movie-night. This is a great event to bring a friend to.
