Blessings and thank you to all that attended today’s (6/16/18) event: it was a blast. Our next event will be held on July 21st and the location will be Auburn Road Presbyterian Church. The events will be Rappelling and Ascension, and should likewise prove to be a ton of fun. For more information or to register, please click here, and remember, we’re going to have a ton of kids coming back from vacations and trips with the family, so, I would suggest that you give me an email notification of intent to attend very early, as we are sure to hit the 20 person capacity quite quickly.

June 16th Para-Pups

On June 16th, the students will be putting what they have learned so far this year to the test, as there will be a five station course set-up consisting of Rappel, Ascension, the One Rope Bridge, the Three Rope Bridge and Land Navigation. The student will be breaking up into small groups, whereby they will have to operate as a team to set-up each station under timed conditions.

May 12 Para-Pups

The Para-Pups instructors would like to thank everyone involved in today’s event. We truly do believe that the Lord Jesus was glorified during this event, and with His help, we will continue to have loads of fun while at the same time, taking time to recognize His grace and mercy in our lives. Praise Him, for He is worthy.

The next Para-Pups will be taking place on June 16th, and the times will run from 9:30 – 1:30. The location is still TBD, but, it does look like we will be doing rappelling and ascension, along with some additional rope bridging, since it is so popular with the kids. I will be updating the website soon, so please keep checking back often.

Also, with the three instructors that we have, it looks as if twenty children will be our max (due to safety concerns, we simply cannot handle to many kids). With this in mind, if you are willing to make a commitment to have your child at each months event, we can go ahead and create a Para-Pups membership, so your child does not get locked out of future events (since it is first come, first in). Hence, each month, we will just go ahead and pencil your child, and we will likewise create a yearly registration form so we don’t have to continue to repeat the monthly process of turning in the form. If this sounds appealing to you, please email me at pastorjeff@arpca.org, and let me know that this is the route you would like to go. We will likewise be creating Para-Pups member shirts which will be available for purchase (at cost), and in the email, please let me know if this appeals to you. Blessings.
