ALTAER Summer Groups

By Events No Comments

ALTAER Summer Groups will meet on Thursday nights from 7-9pm. ALTAER is shifting to a small group model where 4 different gender-specific small groups will meet in different outdoor locations around town (ex. Suwanee Town Center, Sims Lake Park, EE Robinson Park, etc.), to eat dinner together, play together, and dive into God’s word together. For the month of June, each group will be going through the book of Philippians to discuss life, faith, and what it looks like to live a disciplined, yet joyful life. Each student will be encouraged to bring their own dinner, a blanket or chair to sit on, their bible and journal, and any friends they’d like to invite!

Date: Every Thursday starting June 4th (June and July dates TBA)
Location: Local Parks (Small Group Leaders will relay this information to students)
Time: 7-9 pm
Cost: Free

RISING Kids is prepping for this quarantine to be over (fingers crossed!) and moving forward with some exciting summer plans. We would love to invite you and your family to mark your calendars and join us for our RISING Kids Camp: Block Party!

This 3-day week will have one day made just for crafting, another for games, and we will wrap it up with a day at the pool! On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will gather at Mrs. Kelly’s home for crafts and games. We will have activities for various age groups and interest levels. Then on Thursday, we will meet up at the pool, (location TBD). Our hope is to provide an opportunity for family fun and fellowship. Yes, even our youngest friends are invited. We will have extra hands on-site to help specifically with them. We are also inviting everyone to pack a lunch and stay after to join us for a picnic each day.

We know it’s hard to anticipate what the next few months will look like, so we wanted to do something that provides flexibility for our families. It’s free to participate, but please register so we know how many to expect. If your plans change as it gets closer, we get it! No pressure – just let us know!
