Tomorrow night, from 7:00pm-8:30pm we will be celebrating our Sixth Graders at our Annual Sixth Grade Party.

The goal of our party is to welcome the graduating 6th Graders into EBCYG which is our youth group at Eastport Bible Church.  Youth Group is for teens.  It runs all year round and our goal is to love and support teens while teaching them all sorts of great things about how much God loves them.

We’ve done our Sixth Grade party for a few years now and it’s always a fun event.  Also fun fact, the three to the right below are all graduating Seniors this year.

And these girls all just finished their first year of college.  I share this to say, the time really does fly by.  If you’re a parent, you know this all too well.  And if you’re a parent of a teen, you know how challenging these years can be.  But I have this theory that life was never meant to be lived alone and that it really does take community to not just survive, but to thrive during this time.

So parents, this is your invitation as well.  Let us help your awesome teens as they navigate throughout the Jr. and Sr. High years.  We have some amazing summer events that your teen can come be involved in.

First off, July 7th-11th, we are taking our teens to NTS Camp.  You can find all the info here.  As a parent and as a youth leader I could not stress more the positive impact a week of camp can make on your child.  NTS is absolutely incredible and we would love to have your son or daughter join us!  Feel free to reach out anytime for more information.

In addition to camp, we run Youth Group at the beach all summer long.

We meet up on Wednesdays from 6:00pm-8:30pm for drop off and pick up at Eastport Bible Church.  Then we head down to the beach for games, a lesson time and small groups.  It’s an absolutely beautiful and fun way to spend a summer night.

And then August 5th-9th from 9:00am-10:00 noon, we have our annual VBS Kids Camp and your graduating 6th grader is invited to join us!  Camp is for Kindergarten through 7th Grade and we have an absolute blast.

Registration can be found at www.eastportbiblechurch.com and VBS Kids Camp is the perfect way to end the summer.  Your child will have an incredible time with friends and we would love to have them join us.

Also, there is slime and a nice family picnic on the last day that you won’t want to miss.

As a parent of a soon to be 10th and 7th grader, I know how tricky these years can be.  But I’m also so thankful for the amazing impact that EBCYG (Eastport Bible Church Youth Group) has had on our son and will soon have on our daughter.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to me on Facebook or email: lauraherr8@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help in any way that I can.

And if you have a graduating 6th Grader, please send them down to our Sixth Grade party, tomorrow, Wednesday June 5th from 7:00-8:30pm.  Our 6th Grade party is also open to all Jr. and Sr. High students.  We will have some snacks and we are playing fun games with water balloons so they will want to prepare for that.  Hope to see them there!
