Pine Cove Base Camp 2011

I know, I know! How is it possible that Spring Break is 2 weeks away and we need to be thinking about summer fun for our little darlins'.

I get it..but girls, it's time to start looking and thinking.

Base Camp is Pine Cove's newest summer day camp right in our neighborhood! They're coming to our town with all the fun activities, great staff, and life-changing ministry that happens in a week of camp.

A base camp is a place where people start a journey. After five days with some of the most fun and exciting college students in the country, kids will be energized for the upcoming year and ready for their own spiritual journey. Campers will experience Jesus through Bible study, worship, and time with their counselor as well as participate in tons of great camp activities. Prepare for your journey at Pine Cove Base Camp!

Gypsy Market

It's 80 degrees in H-town and people are beginning the planning phases of their own version of extreme makeovers for their sad yards that are left bare from crazy freeze we had a few weeks back.

And Spring brings markets!

The Gypsy Market will be held Thursday March 10th from 1-8 pm and Friday the 11th and Saturday the 12th from 9:30-5 pm. Wine and hor'dourves wil be served from 6-8 pm on Thursday evening.

They have a new location this time around:

IHOP National Pancake Day

Join IHOP on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., for National Pancake Day and receive one complimentary short stack!

In return for the free flapjacks, they ask you to consider leaving a little something behind for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other designated local charities.

Thanks to guests' generosity, IHOP raised more than $2.1 million last year. IHOP began its National Pancake Day in 2006, and since then, has raised $5.35 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities and given away more than 10.1 million buttermilk pancakes.

You and Your Girl Simulast

Do you have a daughter in your home? Then you need to know about Vicki Courtney and her heart for raising girls in this crazy world today.

If you have a daughter age 10 or older, you won’t want to miss out on your chance to attend her mother/daughter You & Your Girl event along with other mothers and daughters in your community. LifeWay is hosting the first-ever You & Your Girl Simulcast event on Saturday, April 9th, and we already have nearly 60 churches on board to host the event!

They still have several states that aren’t represented, but the good news is, it’s not too late to join them! Here is a list of states that do not yet have a YYG simulcast host church:

Alaska, Delaware, D.C., Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming

If your state is listed, they could use your help in finding a church willing to host the event! Click here to get more information on what is required. Feel free to email here with questions as well.

If your state is not listed, you can check here to find the location at which the event will be taking place in your state. If it’s not in a city close by, feel free to arrange a host church in your area!

This event will strengthen the mother/daughter bond and spark important conversations, but most importantly it will strengthen relationships with the Lord and equip your daughters to stand up to the pressures they will face in today’s challenging culture. Hope to see you there on April 9th!
