Winter Jam Concert – Sunday, March 10th, 2013

We will be taking a group to winterjam in Little Rock this year.  We are buying the Jam Nation passes which will get us in the door over an hour early so we can get seats without having to wait in long lines.  The cost for the tickets is $30.  We will leave as soon as possible after the morning service and will eat lunch on the way.  Students need to bring money for food, snacks, or any merchandise they want to buy.  They do sell food inside, but it is usually a little more expensive.This trip is open to anyone who wants to come, but children under 12 need to be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.  Registration forms can be downloaded and printed at the link below, from Bro. Jonathan, or at the church office.  Please turn in your forms by Sunday, February 17th.
