Parents' Night Out
Friday, February 8
Valley Real Life
Plan on bringing your children ages birth through 5th grade to our Parent’s Night Out Fundraiser, February 8th, from 6-9pm at Valley Real Life. We’ll have music, games, stories, arts and crafts for the younger children. The older children will have fun with group games, sports, movies and more. With all the awesome fun we have planned….maybe we should call it Kids’ Night Out!
Cost: There is no set price, but we suggest donating what you would pay a babysitter. Your donation will help send our High School students to their summer conference. This life-changing experience is $425 per student.
We hope that you are able to take advantage of this opportunity! Plan on your kids eating dinner prior to arrival at PNO. Fruit snacks will be provided. If your child has a food allergy, feel free to bring a snack from home labeled with your child’s name. Space is limited, so register today to reserve your spot!
HOW PNO WORKS:
1) Register your children for PNO via the link below.
2) Drop you kids off at the PNO and make a donation.
3) Our students and leaders will give your kids a fun-filled evening and you get a night out!

COMING SOON! Titus2 Mentoring
Titus2 Mentoring Women is a transforming discipleship journey for women who desire to grow deeper in their relationship with God. If you’re ready to take your next step in the adventure of faith, if you’re ready to be challenged and deepen your commitment to Christ—and do so with a loving community of women—then Titus2 is for you! Convenient monthly meetings, conducive to the group’s needs, make it flexible so women in all seasons and stages of life can participate.
One Mentor guides five to six women for 10 months in a small group setting. This Mentor helps nurture spiritual partnership, cultivate accountability and encourage development. Titus2 includes journaling, prayer, Bible study, scripture memory, and discussion of a relevant topic each month.
THE MENTOR: God’s Word is very specific about “older women equipping and training younger women” (Titus 2:3-5), encouraging them, challenging them and loving them. If you feel called to be a Mentor and would like more information about this opportunity to invest in the lives of women, please contact Terina, at email@example.com or Hester at firstname.lastname@example.org (Mentor applications are received September & October.)
THE MENTEE: If you’re a woman hungering for more depth and who desires to be mentored, please mark your calendars for one of the Mentee Informational Meetings: November 15th or 18th for 30 minutes following each service.
Mentee applications will be received starting November 15, 2018. Application deadline is January 15, 2019.
Cost ranges from $50-$150 depending on book choice.
