Weekly Newsletter


by The Youth Staff on May 10, 2021

Hi all!    

The results of last week’s photo scavenger hunt are still pending. Rumors abound that two teams are neck and neck, and we must resort to tiebreakers.  

For the verdict, worship, small groups, and the start of our new series join us this Wednesday @ 6:30 pm! We can’t wait to see you. 


Parents and Guardians (Please READ!)  

We are thrilled to see so many High Schoolers wanting to attend Cashmere this year!  

Due to high interest, spots are filling up quickly! 

If you have joined our interest list and received a registration link from us, there is still time! We will secure your spot for two more weeks so please head there to sign up! 

If you would like to register or have any questions, you can contact joe@maplevalleychurch.org Please note that spots are limited, and once full, we will begin adding students to a wait list. Thank you for understanding!  


Is the Bible at all relevant?  

How do we explain to our friends that there is a loving God but also something called hell?  

Why does evil exist?  

These are just a few of the many questions that pop up in the life of faith, and we want to address them! Starting today, students are welcome to submit their own questions about the Bible, Jesus, and what it means to follow him.  

While we won’t be able to tackle every question, we hope to cover a few of them, and encourage your students that it is okay to doubt, that God invites our questions, and He is big enough to handle them.  

Questions can be submitted to joe@maplevalleychurch.org, 253-409-8344, or they can send a DM  to Rise_youthmvc on Instagram.  


We are heading back to Seattle Escape Games for another round on May 19th! If your student is interested in going, please email joe@maplevalleychurch.org  Note that there will be no youth group on May 19th outside of the event!  

Cost: $15  

Time: Meet at church @ 4:45pm (Middle School) or 6:15pm (High School)  

We will return to the church around 7:45-8:00pm for Middle School & 9:15-9:30pm for High School. 

If you have already joined the interest list, please go ahead, and fill out this online waiver. Thank you!
