Lock-In: Super Heroes & Emoji's!
August 25-26 from 7pm-8am
Cost $10; Register by August 23
Get ready for the first lock-in of Steve’s DCE career! To make things even better, it falls the day after Steve and Emmy Hoh’s birthday so we’ll have some special surprises planned. All 5-6th grade youth are invited for an all-night adventure of games, movies, food, and more! The theme is Superheroes and Emoji's so guests are encouraged (but not required) to dress up like their favorite superhero and/or emoji! Some of the activities include: food challenges, pie-ing Steve in the face, hide and go seek in the dark, and a super scavenger hunt!
New Birthday Tradition for 5-6 Graders
Every month Steve McCarthy will host one big birthday get-together at Dairy Depot to celebrate everyone who had their birthday during that month. Even if you didn’t have a birthday that month, you are still welcome to show up and celebrate with the birthday kids! But if you did have a birthday that month you’ll get free ice cream! The August date will be the 28 from 6-7pm. Questions? Contact Steve McCarthy at or 919-554-8109.
Wednesday Night Youth Group
This summer on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30PM, all rising 5 & 6 graders are invited to Hope for youth nights with Steven. Come for games, fellowship, devotions, and more each Wednesday this summer. This class meets in the Youth Center. Youth and parents are invited to attend and participate!
- August 23: Ultimate Frisbee Day: The group will be playing Ultimate Frisbee (Steve's favorite sport of all time) at Youth Group – so remember to wear clothes and shoes that you can run in! Steve recommends bringing a water bottle and a hat too!
- August 30: End of Summer Celebration: The group will be celebrating the end of summer in style before Confirmation starts up! Parents are welcome to stay the whole time and participate in the games and activities or show up a little early for pick up at 7:20 to watch the slideshow presentation that Steve'll put together from all the fun events we’ve done this summer!
Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45AM. You’re invited to the Youth Center every Sunday! The class, led by Steve McCarthy, is a combination of games, Bible study, and prayer.
The Confirmation Program at Hope
Confirmation is a time in a young person's faith life when they confirm the promise made at their baptism. Hope's program is two years during 5 & 6 grades. However, each year we have 7-9 graders who connect to Hope and go through the program as well. Students focus on a Lutheran understanding of the Bible and use the Catechism as a guide. Questions? Contact the church office at 919-554-8109.
