On New Year’s Eve, our teens enjoyed a night in Hogwarts led by alumni of our youth group. We made Fluvonium in Potions class with Prof Slughorn, identified and potted plants with Prof Sprout, had a morose sing-a-long in the girls’ lavatory with Moaning Myrtle, and received a series of stern lectures from Prof McGonagall. The best part of the night was sipping down cold butterbeer and enjoying Hob Nobs, Tim Tams, Maltesers, and Helga Hufflepuff’s ooey gooey gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! Enjoy the photos below and thanks to all the house elves who are still recovering from a long night of service.
Last Sunday 10/14, we had a packing party to put together shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Over 40 people came and together we packed 95 boxes with clothing and toys for children in need. Thanks to everyone who joined the party by donating or packing a box! And a big thanks to our OCC Coordinator and the youth who helped her put on a great event!
