Appalachian Trail Trip Cancellation

After much brainstorming and discussion, Pastors Jill, Gordon, and Beth have decided to cancel this year’s Appalachian Trail Trip, due to small numbers. As our Fish Club families are already aware, we will have a few years where our middle school youth numbers are smaller than usual, which will then affect High Hopes as our middle schoolers move up to high school. While we know in about 2 years our numbers will begin to increase again as the larger number of elementary school students move to middle school, for now we will need to be creative and strategic in making sure our programming and events are better dialed in for smaller numbers. But rest assured, this does not change our commitment to this fantastic trip! We already have next year’s trip dates on the calendar and have invited our high schoolers to join us too. Thanks for all you do to support Hope Church youth!
