INCLUDED BALL – BUDDIES NEEDED
February 23rd • 6:00 – 9:00 PM
The Included Ball is one of the most magical nights of the entire year! Close to 100 participants follow the red carpet through the doors of our church and instantly become royalty. This night of fun and celebration is made possible by volunteers from our church and from all over the Mansfield area. One of the most important roles of the night is being a buddy to one of the participants. What is the job of a buddy? To make sure their participant has the most fun possible! Come party with us Saturday, February 23rd. You can register Here. If you have any questions, you can send an email to email@example.com.

JUST US GIRLS
For all girls in 5th – 8th grade
February 9th • 5:00 – 7:00 PM • The Loft
Just Us Girls is an evening designed specifically for 5-8th grade girls! Join us on February 9th in The LOFT from 5:00 – 7:00 pm and bring $5.00 to help cover food and crafts/activities. It’ll be a night to enjoy food, fun, and good conversation centered around being a girl, and the challenges that come with middle school. Middle school isn’t easy… it’s when you’re figuring out who you are, who you hang out with, and what you believe. It’s when friends become enemies and boys become… cute. Life gets tough. People get mean. How do we push through? What does God’s plan mean for our lives? What does it mean to be God’s girl in middle school? Together we’re going to search the Word of God and learn more. Register here.
