Temple Trip and Sleepover

New Info!!!
The girls have been wanting to have a sleepover for awhile and we have decided to throw one for them! We will be having a sleepover at Sister Howard's house address is: 446 OakLawn Dr. Pearl (Live Oaks Subdivision). The girls need to bring their favorite snack to share with everyone and stuff to sleep with and stuff/clothes for the temple trip. We will be taking the girls to the church in the morning for the temple trip. The girls can bring their sleeping stuff with them to the church, we will store it in the church, and they can pick it up when they return from the temple trip. We will be providing dinner and breakfast for the girls, so they will need money for any snack they want and lunch. If you have any questions, please let us know!

Baptism Trip Info

**This Wednesday, August 20th, we will be participating in the Brandon Ward Youth Olympics at the church 7:00 pm. It is a combined YM/YW activity.

**The youth will be going on a temple trip on Saturday the 23rd. Per Brother Flemming, the youth need to meet at the Church that morning, and they will be leaving the church by 5:45 am. The girls will need money for food and will need to have an interview with one of the members of the Bishopric before they go (a member of the Bishopric should be calling to set that up). So far I know that Sister Jordan will be attending and have many other sisters "possibly" attending. As soon as I know that info, I will post it.

**Wednesday, August 27th, we will be having our monthly service project. We will be washing the parents car as a "Thank you" for all the love, support and work they do for the girls. The girls need to wear clothes that they can work in/get wet and be at the church at 7:00 pm. Parents, plan to bring your car for a wash!

**We are tentatively planning the young women sleepover for the weekend of August 29th-30th, which is labor day weekend. So far, not too many families will be out of town or have plans for that weekend, but again, the activity may be postponed if too many families will be gone. More details to follow.
