TRUST Youth Mini Lock-in

Friday, January 10 5:30-10:30 p.m. Hosted by Lynnhurst UCC We’ll probably start with getting-to-know-you and group-building games. This is partly to allow for kids whose after school activities/parents’ commutes mean they can’t be there right at 5:30.

Youth should bring $5 plus a sleeping bag and pillow since we’re going to be sprawled out on the gym floor for the movie. We’ll nail down the rest of the details as the date approaches. Looking [...]
