The Amazing Escape Room

On Saturday, February 27th the High Schoolers will be going to The Amazing Escape Room (website here) in Freehold. Short description: You're basically locked inside a room with your team and you have 60 minutes to solve all the puzzles and escape. IT'S. SO. FUN. But very tricky! We'll be meeting at Grace at 12:15pm and will carpool to Freehold. The cost is $20, which includes lunch. We will be stopping at Baco's Pizza on the way home and will be back at the church by 3:45pm. There are a limited number of spots so if you want to attend you must sign up ahead of time. We hope to see you there! (Again, SO FUN.)

 

Christmas Party

On Sunday, December 13th, Grace Lighthouse will be having our annual Christmas Party from 4-7pm in the cafeteria/youth group room at Grace. It will be "formal attire" and dinner will be served, along with dessert. We will be having a secret angel gift exchange, so all are encouraged to bring a small gift (5-10$) along with an encouraging card/note with either a verse or just some kind words. There will be games, music, amazing food, a photo booth, and tons of fun and laughs. Come out and encourage your friends as we celebrate the birth of our Savior! See you then! 

Progressive Dinner--High School Boys

On Friday, November 20th the High School boys will be having another progressive dinner. Meet at the church at 5pm and we'll carpool to each destination. If you weren't able to make the last one and have no idea what "progressive dinner" means, then be sure to read on to the next sentence! We'll start in one location for appetizers, then go somewhere new for dinner, and the same for dessert. We had so much fun last time and can't wait to do it again. Please sign up ahead of time if you plan on attending!

SCAVENGER HUNT

On Saturday, October 24th, we will be having a campus-wide scavenger hunt for both middle school and high school at the church. Be here at 9am where you will be split into teams. Whichever team finishes first wins, so bring your A game! There will be lunch (pizza) served after the scavenger hunt. The team that comes in last place doesn't get lunch (joking!). This is a free event, but please sign up ahead of time if you plan on attending. Hope to see you there, gonna be so fun!

Laser Tag

FIREBALL MOUNTAIN LASER TAG!!!

FIREBALL MOUNTAIN LASER TAG!!!

June 13th from 12:00-2:00 the whole youth group will be getting together for an afternoon of laser tag!  We have been going for a few years now and each year they seem to add something new.  Whether it's new terrain or new equipment, Fireball Mountain keeps the experience brand new every time we go.  Fireball Mountain is an outdoor laser tag facility situated on 15 acres of land with several different fields available for play.  Please dress for the event (sneakers and whatever you are comfortable running through the forest in... bug spray?).

We will all meet at 295 Meany Road, Wrightstown, NJ 08562 at about 11:30 AM to get ready for the game.  Don't arrive late since that would just take away from field time.  It's $20 to play.  Please bring your money and permission slip to youth group on Wednesday night and submit everything at the sign in table.  INVITE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE!!!  We have at minimum 30 spots to fill and there is NO MAX.  It would be great to have a good ol' game of 40 on 40.  If the weather looks like it will be bad that day please check this site on the homepage for any possible cancellation.  LETS GET AS MANY SIGN UPS AS POSSIBLE!!!  THE MORE THE MERRIER!!!
