Blue Moon Drive-In Theatre

On Friday, July 14, the youth will travel to Gu-Win, Alabama, step back in time, and visit the Blue Moon drive-in theater. We aren’t sure what the movies are yet but that’s okay. We will leave the church parking lot at 6 p.m. sharp. The cost of the movie is $7 plus whatever items you would like to purchase from the concession stand. Since we will be returning after 1 a.m., we will make this event a lock-in. Parents can pick up at 8 a.m. Saturday morning.

If you can help finish the second coat of paint on the Mecredy Center, meet Will and Marvin at 7:30 a.m. this Saturday morning (July 8).

If you want some midnight sushi join us this Saturday night (July 8) in the church parking lot at 10 pm. Bring a friend and join the fun. Parents can pick up back at the church parking lot at midnight.

This Sunday night, July 9, is Go Night. We will leave the church at 6:30 p.m. and head over to Midtown. If you are a little late just meet us there.
