Cross Training Summer Camp

cross-trainingThe CrossTraining philosophy combines children with teens and adults putting them in a challenging, high adventure environment in order to teach them spiritual truths. This year our theme is “Bold Faith: Getting Out of the Boat”, where we’ll talk about courage, faith, and stepping out of our comfort zones. Throughout the week, each camper will discover leadership traits such as goal setting, team work, listening skills, self-discipline, overcoming fears, and the reward of serving others. We want to come alongside you and help equip your child for life’s adventures while they make new friends and experience new challenges.

PBC Softball 2017

Tom Newell is organizing the spring softball season for PBC.  Please let him know if you plan on being part of the team this season.  It’s going to be a great time of fellowship while playing a great game.  As always, we will be playing in the Loudoun County Church League and will play 18 games during the regular season.  We will play double headers on Monday nights (weather permitting).  Games are an hour long with the first set of double headers starting at 6:30 and 7:30pm with the second set starting at 8:30 and 9:30pm.  Most (if not all) will be played at Potomack Lakes Sportsplex (next to Algonkian Park, off of Cascades Pkwy).

Softball season runs from April 3 – June with playoffs following.
Cost: $70.00/player, as long as 13 people pay.  We want everyone to be able to be on the team, so if the cost is too much of a financial burden, please talk to Tom.  We will gladly reduce or wave the fee if that is needed.

Make checks payable to “PBC” as PBC will pre-pay the league fee.  Write “softball” on the memo line and give the check to Tom Newell.

Tom is tentatively planning a practice for Monday, March 20 and then we will have the league provided practice during the last week of March (the night will depend on what night the field will be available). Specific information will be provided as we get closer to the date.

We are going to have a lot of fun this season and hopefully win some ballgames along the way.  Contact Tom if you have any questions or if you know of others who are interested in playing.

Now it’s time to play ball!

Family Fun Weekend

Since PBC is having construction this summer, we will not be having VBS or Cross Training Camp. Instead, we are planning a family-friendly event at the New River Gorge in West Virginia.  We are gathering information about who would like to attend and which types of activities interest them most.  The Family Camp is being planned for July 28 – 31.  Lodging options range from tent camping to full service cabins. Activity options range from the award winning pool, walking over sky bridges, 10 types of zip lines, rafting on the New River or Gauley River (from easy to extreme choices), rappelling with our own Scott Hesler, and evening sessions on building communication, and an all-church talent show.

Please read over this bulletin insert, and fill out the brief survey. If you have questions, contact Mary Lou Swiscoski at swiscoski@verizon.net or 703-581-2094.

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR INTENT BY THE END OF FEBRUARY 26 so we can build package options.
