Monthly DGYM Calendar (PRINT)

Hello, DGYM Parents!

The school year is just flying by! We've had some beautiful days scattered among the rainy ones, but I'm ready for some permanent sunshine for a while. I hope you all had a great April... we certainly had some fun in our youth ministry. We packed three lanes at Triple Play with teens and parents during our Bowling Night, we continued to have great discussions and participation in our Tuesday night Youth LIFEgroup, we had youth and adults working together to clean up the highway (as well as some fun on the tennis courts!), and it was really great having our SNL Devo at Anita Poland's house hosted by the Buchanon/Petersen LIFEgroup. It was a month full of teens interacting with people of all ages which is great to see!

I have attached a May calendar for our DGYM events and activities as well as some descriptions below. As always, if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns please feel free to get in touch with me. And if you aren't subscribed to our free Remind texting service just send the word DGYMParent to the number 81010 to get hooked up. Have a great May!

"How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!" (Psalm 133:1)

DGYM News & Notes

Youth LIFEgroup
All 6th-12th graders are encouraged to join us for our weekly time of praise, fellowship, and Bible study. We meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 8:30pm in the Youth Barn. This month we'll be going through a series called Stranger Things. It's basically a play off of the popular Netflix show's title... We won't actually be watching it. We will be looking at some of the things we believe and do as followers of Jesus that might seem strange to the world: communion, baptism, loving our enemies, and listening for the Holy Spirit. This will be our final series before we take a break for the summer.

Guys/Girls Groups
This will be the last month for our Guys and Girls Groups this school year. Our Guys Group will be wrapping up with one more meeting on Sunday this month, and our Girls Group will finish up with two more Wednesdays. I really want to thank Mike Wood, Amber Lufiyele, and Katrina Swaim for giving of their time, energy, and wisdom in leading these groups. It's so good for our teens to hear God speaking through other adults besides myself. I'd also like to thank Tabby Cutler for tirelessly hosting the girls in her home each month. We are blessed at Dalton Gardens with so many servants who truly care about our young people!

Singing Squad
All teens and parents are encouraged to join us as we meet with Church of Christ at Coeur d'Alene for their monthly singing night on Sunday, May 7th. This time of worship begins at 5:30pm, but we will leave from Dalton Gardens at 5:00 if you would like to ride the van. This will be a wonderful time of praise and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Rally on the Rock
All 6th-12th graders are encouraged to join us for a youth rally in Redmond, Oregon, called Rally on the Rock. This weekend event is hosted by the Redmond Church of Christ and will take place on Friday, May 19th, through Sunday, May 21st. The cost is only $15 and includes a t-shirt if registered by Friday, May 5th. Since this is a little further away than what we typically travel for a youth rally I was hoping that we could leave around 12:00pm that Friday which would mean that your teen would have to miss a partial day of school. If that is a deal-breaker please let me know. You can register your teen online at www.cococy.com (you'll still need to bring a signed copy of the medical release form) or you can pick up a registration form from the Youth Bulletin Board or Welcome Desk at the church building. If you register online please let me know so that I can have a complete list of everyone who is going with us. If any parents would like to come along and help chaperone the church would gladly pay your way.

Sunday Night Live
All teens and parents are encouraged to join us for our monthly Sunday Night Live Devotional. This month we'll be meeting on Sunday, May 28th, from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the home of Nathan and Whitney Frisk. We'll enjoy a meal together, play some games, and spend some time praising the Lord. Don't miss out on this wonderful time of fellowship.
