Hey Middle School - Get ready for Soul Link!

People around the world have debated for centuries about this one question:  What is the best part of being in middle school?  Some people feel like it is that you do not have to be in elementary school any more.  Others say it is the fact that you do not have to be in high school yet.  Still others say that you get free pancakes every Saturday morning.  (We're not sure who those people are, or where they get the pancakes, but we're happy for them.)  But we want to tell you the real answer to the best part of being in middle school.  It's called... Soul Link!  Yep.  That's it.  Now you know.

On February 23 thru 25, our middle school group is heading to a youth conference called Soul Link.  Well now, you're probably wondering something like, "What is Soul Link?" or "What makes Soul Link so amazing?" or some other question that is very similar to these.  You're in luck...this webpage has been created just to let you know all of the details.  Read it well and then make plans to join us.

Additional Details about Soul Link:

 

What will Soul Link be like? 
Glad you asked.  The short answer is: amazing.  The long answer is:  We'll start with a great bus ride down to Houston. (don't worry, it gets better.)  Once we arrive, we'll go to the conference for some worship time, a drama group, a great speaker, and then we'll go to our home for the weekend and get some sleep.  Saturday will be filled with some awesome classes, great activities friends, fun, dirty socks, syrup, excitement, watermelons, worship, games, and some speakers who will rock your world with some awesome messages about God.  We'll get some more rest on Saturday night and then go to church at Soul Link Sunday morning.  Then we'll get back in our bus and head home.  Now, the bus ride home will be in the same bus that we took to Houston, but it will feel different.  Different because we'll have spent a weekend growing in faith and in our relationship with God.  Once again, amazing is a great word to describe it.  We think you'll love it.  By the way, we were just kidding about the watermelons, syrup and dirty socks. (unless you don't wash your socks before you come...in which case they will be dirty.) 

 

When we do leave?
We'll leave at 5:00pm on Friday, February 23


When do we get back?

We'll get back around 12:30pm on Sunday, February 25


How much does it cost?

The cost for Soul Link is $55.  Full and partial scholarshps are available to anyone who would not otherwise be able to join us for Soul Link.  Talk to Monty or Heather if you would like to apply for one of these. 


What is covered by the registration fee?

Everything.  All of your food, lodging, Soul Link registration fee, transportation, etc.  If you want to bring some extra money for a CD or a t-shirt you can, but you won't need any extra money once you've paid.


Where will we be staying?
We will be staying with a family that goes to Bammel Church of Christ in Houston.  This is the same place we've stayed for the past 8 years.  They have a really big house (like 5 bathrooms upstairs kind of big.)  It's a great place to stay.
 

Can I bring electronics or a cell phone? 
This is a no-phone, no-electronics trip.  Please leave all iPods, video game devices, laptops, dvd players, kindles/nooks, earphones, etc., at home.  If your parents need to reach you or you need to talk to them, Monty and Heather's phone will always be available.  You can borrow Monty or Heather's phone...or if your parents need you, they can call Monty or Heather's phone.  We always want you to be able to talk to your parents or for your parents to be able to talk to you.


Can I bring muffins?
Yes, it is okay to bring muffins to bring to Soul Link.  We suggest blueberry or banana nut.  Those are by far the best kinds of muffins.   

 

Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely, this is a great event to bring friends to.  Just have them fill out the sign-up form below.  If we need to talk to their parents about any of the details or answer any questions for them, let us know.


Can I bring a fish?
No, fish are not allowed at Soul Link.  Sorry.  On a related note, the house we are staying at has some inside dogs.  If you are allergic to dogs, talk to us and let us know how bad your allergies are.  We'll try to come up with a solution.
 

Will it be fun?
Of course.  Not only will it be amazingly fun, it may be the most fun (a.k.a. funnest or mostest funnest) thing you've done so far this year (or this decade.)





Here's how to sign-up:
All sign-ups will be online for Soul Link.  If you would like to pay using a credit card or debit card, you can do so. There will be a $1.50 service charge to pay by credit card.
