What is Summer Stretch?

Summer Stretch is a service and recreational program, centered on Gospel values, which Christ Church will hold on five Wednesdays (all day) in June and July. It is estimated that during this coming summer, those teens participating in the 100 or so churches who do Summer Stretch will, as a group, give 22,500 hours of service to our metropolitan community. Come be a part of the fun and create for yourself a memorable summer.

Service Sites include:

Feed My Starving Children Gardens and Food Shelves Highway and Yard Clean up Thrift Store Organizing

All friends of our youth are also welcome to register and participate. So, talk it up among your friends and neighbors. Sr. High Youth are invited to serve in a very special role as teen leaders for this program. Let us know if you want to be a teen leader. Sr. High students are not required to serve as teen leaders.

Schedule of Summer Stretch Dates:
There is a Mandatory Parent/Participant meeting being offered twice, with the idea that you will find one that you can attend for the entire hour. This year, we will need to return registrations for any young person whose parent does not attend one of the Mandatory meetings. Youth participants should also attend with their parent(s).

Parents will also be required to drive/chaperone one day out of the schedule, for each of their children registered in the program. This will ensure that we have enough space in cars and adult supervision at the service sites

Tuesday, June 13th: Option B: Parent/Participant Mandatory Meeting, 7:30-8:30 pm at Christ Church
