Ready, Set, Go! On February 21, 2015, the BBC Youth Dept will be hosting our 2nd annual AMAZING RACE competition. We had so much fun last year that we thought we’d just do it again!
Students will set out in teams (accompanied by an adult) to find clues, solve puzzles, and gather random objects from all over Rohnert Park in order to earn prizes and meet checkpoints. And even though the race is almost 4 hours long, last year’s top 3 teams all finished literally within seconds of each other! It really was an Amazing Race!
This event is open to all students grades 6-12. Please signup in the church lobby by February 14, 2015 and contact Jared with any questions.
Also, attention all CHURCH MEMBERS: You can be part of our race! If you live in Rohnert Park and would like a quick visit from us the day of the event, we would love to briefly swing by and say “hello!” and it would be a really big help to us as well.
Please contact Jared if you’d like to help us out and take part in our race!
Pt Reyes Hike 5/19/2012
The Youth Dept. headed out to Pt Reyes this morning for a beautiful hike along the Bear Valley Trail out to Arch Rock and back. The total distance of the trip is just a little over 8 miles roundtrip and we absolutely had a blast!
Around the one mile mark, we decided that we would split the groups up into two. The first group was lead by two adults that would stay the course out to Arch Rock on the main trail. The second group would take a longer and a somewhat more ambitious route up to the highest point in the park and then back down again to meet up with the others at Arch Rock for lunch.
After lunch, we would eventually all make the return trip together as one group with some having hiked a whopping 8 miles and even 13 miles for the others.
Needless to say, we were all VERY tired when we finally returned back to the visitor center.
Within the first 10 minutes of the drive back home, the three girls in my car were already asleep on each other in the back seat…obviously a sign of a “good hike!”
I would especially like to thank the adults that volunteered and sacrificed their time and “legs” to make this trip possible! Thank You!
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. Psalms 96:11-13
The Youth Department will be hosting an ALL YOU CAN EAT Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, May 28th, 2011 from 8am to 11am.
