2011 Cali Summer Trip

Wow has time flown!  It seems like just yesterday we were finishing up our last days of training for our sophomore semester at NTBI!  Yet here we are packing to head out to the East Coast for a few weeks before heading back to Wisconsin for one more year.  It went WAY to fast!  Well… here is a quick snapshot of our time in beautiful California!  We arrive in late May and enjoyed some family time and reconnecting with friends in the Livermore/Brentwood area.  We were offered a BRIGHT red Volkswagen Beetle to use and drive around.  We were able to get to a beloved Giants game and enjoy Pete’s Birthday with a sunny BBQ.  We hang out with Cornerstone Brentwood Youth Ministry for their end of the year events and took nice walks with the family in the vineyards of Livermore.  We flew down to San Diego to visit Bree’s little brother, grandparents, cousins, and aunt and uncle for a week and a half….  Can you say beach time?!?!  After we returned from San Diego we went up to Hume Lake with Cornerstone’s Youth Ministry.  Bree hung out with Diane and Caden while my little brother Jeremy and I went camping and survived on hot dogs and sunflower seeds.  Upon our return from Hume we had a chance to be apart of our dear friend Heidi’s wedding, attend a baby dedication, and enjoy some Cornerstone VBS in Brentwood.  What a fun time in the place we love!  Thanks Cali… see you next summer!!!

Zone Team-Building Day 09

Our Children’s Ministry Team got to go on a surprise Team-Building trip!  It was amazing!  First we started off by going to Sweet n’ Savory for a great breakfast.  Then we went to UmiGo Go-Cart Racing track for the main event!  We had two heats of best-lap and I got 1st in one and 2nd in the other.  IT WAS AMAZING!!!  Those carts were insane!  To top it off, we headed to Toll House Café to grab make-your-own Cookie/Ice Cream Sandwiches!  Mine was Chocolate Chip Cookie, Triple Chocolate Cookie, and Cookie Dough Ice Cream!  A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

BW Zone PreSchool Island Stage

This is pics of one of Bree’s latest ventures with her art/photography.  It’s a puppet stage for the PreSchool island on the Zone Brentwood Campus!  Lately, God has opened doors for her to try mediums and challenges that are outside of her normal comfort zone – she’s been hitting them out of the park!!!

Make sure to check out her blog where she post pics of her current projects. http://breeelizabethphotography.blogspot.com/

Spring Break in the Zone

For Spring Break we took the week off in Quest. However, in it’s place we had two outreach events! We had Gross Game Night for the boys and Glam Night for the girls! Check out the videos below! With both events packed with fun and excitement along with meaningful devotions, these experiences were off the hook!
