Monthly DGYM Calendar (PRINT)

Hello, DGYM Parents!

I love this time of year... Things are really starting to heat up! It reminds me of when I was a kid and spent many hot, New Mexico summer days at my grandparents' house swimming in the Pecos River. Of course it doesn't really compare to the beauty of being out on Lake Coeur d'Alene.

Last month was a busy one! We had a great group head over to Stevensville, Montana, last month to help the church host a Community Picnic to get to know their neighbors. We finished up another school year, and got to honor our High School graduates on Senior Sunday. We enjoyed the outdoors with some disc golf at Corbin Park in Post Falls during our first Wild Side. Then we finished up the month with an explosive week at Prince's Pine for Uplift. If your teen when to Uplift make sure they share the songs we learned (we'll be gradually introducing them to the congregation too). June may have come and gone, but there are still many youth ministry activities for you and your teens to plug into this summer.

This month's calendar is coming out a little late because I had to make some last minute adjustments. Unfortunately the Bible Sports Camp we were going to help the congregation in Missoula put on had to be cancelled a week before it was scheduled. We just found out recently that the school across the street from their building where we were going to do all of the sporting activities is reseeding all of their fields and won't let anyone on them for quite some time. We are really bummed that this happened as much planning had gone in to this event. We know that God is in control, and I'm sure that He'll have some other way we can serve the Northwest down the road. Plus this gives us a little extra time to get our own Bible Sports Camp ready to go! Check out the calendar and information below and make plans to be involved when you can. God bless you and your family this month!


"So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up." (Galatians 6:9)

July Activities

New Reign Concert
Everyone is invited to join us for an evening of great music and fellowship. The singing group, New Reign, from Oklahoma Christian University will be at the Valley Church of Christ on Wednesday, July 11th. We will be meeting at the Youth Barn at 5:30pm fro those who want to ride over in the van. The concert begins at 6:30pm if you'd like to meet us there. There will be a time of fellowship with cookies and ice cream afterward so you might want to eat dinner before you come. We should get back to the Youth Barn around 8:30pm.

Bible Sports Camp
We will be hosting our 9th annual Bible Sports Camp on July 16-18. Bible Sports Camp is open to all children Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Our theme this year is "Team Spirit" and children will be learning all about the life of Christ while learning some skills in basketball, cheerleading, and soccer. Plus everyone will get to play some Gaga this year! The camp will run from 9:00am to Noon each day with a closing ceremony and hot dog feed on Wednesday evening. We need EVERYONE to help out in some way. If you have not already let Jeff or Kara know you're available, please do so as soon as possible. There's a place for everyone to serve! It's a fun-filled three days of bringing light to the lives of our children.

DGYM @ the Slates
Pack the sunscreen and grab a towel! All 6th-12th graders (and their families) are invited to join us for our annual day on Lake Couer d'Alene at the home of Larry and Sylvia Slate. We will meet at the Youth Barn at 12:00pm on Thursday, July 19th (eat lunch before you come) and stay out at their place until around 8:00pm. Some of the teens from the Richland Church of Christ will be joining us too!

DGYM @ Silverwood
Everyone is invited to join us for our Youth Group day at Silverwood on Friday, July 20th. The teens from the Richland Youth Group will be joining us for this one too. We will meet at the Youth Barn at 10:00am and stay at Silverwood until it closes at 10:00pm. Each person will be responsible for their own ticket (cheaper if bought online) and their own food and drinks throughout the day. Come enjoy the fellowship with other Christian teens from the Northwest and make some lifelong memories.

Wild Side
All 6th-12th graders are invited to join us for some outdoor fun on Wednesday, July 25th. Grab a tennis racquet and water bottle and meet us at the Youth Barn at 10:00am. We will head over to the tennis courts at Cherry Hill Park until around Noon, then go eat lunch together at Wing Stop. Come join us even if you're not a great tennis player... none of us really are either. We can all enjoy laughing at each other.

All Teen Camp
All students who have completed 7th through 12th grade are encouraged to join us for All Teen Camp at Prince's Pine. The theme for this year is Windows to Wisdom. Each day at camp we will be looking to the book of Proverbs to allow the wisdom of God to speak to us and grow us into who He wants us to be. The van will leave on Sunday, July 29th at 1:00pm, and return home around 1:30pm on Saturday, August 4th. It's not too late to sign up! Just head over to www.newacc.online to sign up.
