The Students are extremely excited for what we have all planned for the end of the year! Starting this month we will be gearing up for our Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre that we will be having in February. The theme this year is “Once Upon A Murder!”- Fairy Tale Style! Which means we will be rehearsing lines, making costumes, planning out meals, and working on decorations for the next couple months! This year, instead of this being a fundraiser for the Student Ministry, the students have decided that they want this event to be a benefit for a local charity. They are all hard at work researching which charity they would like to sponsor and we will be announcing that closer to the event.
We also went to Cumberland Caverns, where we stayed the night and slept in the caves on November 8th & 9th. While there the students got to go spelunking in the dark and see some really awesome underground formations as well as get some quality teambuilding in. We had 11 adults and students go and we had a blast! Here are some pictures from the trip!
In November we are also having our yearly Can Food Drive. On November 17th (last Sunday) we went out and drop off 200 plastic bags around local neighborhoods with a flyer telling them what we are doing. After which, we then went Laser Tagging at Laser Quest Nashville! Then the following Sunday we will drive back around and pick up any donations that locals leave out on their doorsteps for us. After which we will bring all donations to the church to be tallied and then brought to the Nourish Food Bank. If you would like to join in let us know! We want November to be our record month for the Food Bank!
