DRAMA Fall Session 2016!


Here is the information needed for participation in this Fall’s DRAMA teams. Applications for them can be printed off the DRAMA website under the documents page or filled out online (p://dramateam.org/beta/alphabeta-application/). Helper applications are also available on the website (www.dramateam.org). In any case, all applications must be received by August 8th in order to be accepted into the Fall session. Please send your applications to Bev Weaver (438 Staver Rd, Reinholds Pa 17569) along with your $40 session fee. If this creates financial difficulty, please contact Tim as there are scholarships available. An alternate, older-youth application is available online. This application is for members whose parents deem them mature enough for a deeper challenge.

This coming Fall session there may be enough members for Beta to split to create a third team, in addition to Alpha and Beta. We will confirm to you whether or not this is happening by August 13th.  On the back, we have listed the pre-booked outreaches for this session.  The first scenario is if we only have two teams, and the second scenario for if there are three teams. Each team’s outreaches will be confirmed by August 13th. If we have a third team, practice times and locations will be the same as Beta.

Parents Meetings and meals: in order for a youth to participate in this session, regardless of how long they have been on a team, at least one parent must attend one of the parent meetings listed below or make special arrangements with Tim (717-951-2518).

Parents of new members do not need to attend these meetings, but are welcome and may find them helpful. Fall parent meeting dates are:

Other opportunities:

Sprouts: DRAMA is planning on having one Sprouts team (youth ages 8 to 12) this fall. This session will be from September 14th to December 7th, with two weeks off. Sprouts will meet on Wednesdays from 2-4pm in the Brownstown area (exact location TBA). Sprouts has one pre-booked outreach for the evening of November 30th at Hope Rescue Mission in Reading.

Needed: Ipods of any kind, new or used, that are 6GB or more. We are reaching a season of having multiple directors, and to remain flexible as a ministry we would like to supply each director with an Ipod for ministry use. If you feel led to donate in this way, please contact Tim King.
