This is an opportunity for parents to re-connect with each other on Friday nights. Participate in a Small Group the weeks prior to the Friday Night Out date desired to receive a voucher for childcare. Childcare is provided to individuals with children fifth grade or younger between the hours of 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Follow the instructions on your voucher to register your children. Registrations must be in by midnight the Wednesday prior. Sorry, no exceptions to the rules!
With the rising costs associated with this ministry we have made the decision to charge a very small fee to reduce cost overages. This new fee will be $10 for the entire evening, per family, whether you have one child or multiple children.This means for $10 your family receives childcare from 6:00-9:30 p.m.
It is our desire to be the very best stewards we can with what God has given to us. This change will allow us to continue to offer this great opportunity to small group participants while still offering an incredible value when compared to the childcare alternatives out there today.
If you have any questions prior to registering, please email Robyn Brooks at the Pinnacle Hills Campus.

Enjoy the Best of a European Tour. Travel for 10 days to the Netherlands, Belgium, & Paris. Tour the historic D-Day beaches of Normandy, cruise the canals of Amsterdam, discover fairytale, medieval Bruges.
For more information contact Millie Sanabria-Terry at email@example.com.
Depart Springdale at 11:40 am, travel to Minneapolis, then onward to Amsterdam
Undoubtedly one of the jewels of Europe, Amsterdam is a city of water and, it follows, of bridges. Amsterdam has no fewer than 1,281 bridges. Since the 17th century a maze of canals has divided downtown Amsterdam into 90 islands and hundreds of bridges link the islands. The canals have made Amsterdam famous. Small wonder, as the city has more canals than Venice and more bridges than Paris. At night, most of the downtown bridges are romantically illuminated You will see the Royal Palace, the Floating Flower Market, central Dam Square and have an exterior view of the renowned Rijksmuseum. Then board a canal boat for an hour long cruise
This morning, depart Amsterdam and explore the typical Dutch countryside outside the capital. Drive through a picture-perfect landscape crisscrossed with canals, see authentic wooden houses, windmills and fishing villages, and witness traditional crafts from days gone by. In Brussels, we will pass by some of the city’s highlights then have free time for a walk around Grand Place, Brussels’ central market square flanked by medieval guild houses and the beautifully-proportioned Town Hall. Then on to to the historic city of Bruges which has a fairy-tale medieval town feel to it.
A full day to enjoy this charming town While in Bruges, we will enjoy a walking tour of the historic city center with most of its medieval buildings and cobblestone streets still intact. Known as the “Venice of the North”, Bruges is renowned for its well preserved architecture and as the birthplace of Flemish painting. The Historic Town of Bruges is testimony of a considerable exchange of influences on the development of architecture, particularly in brick Gothic, as well as favoring innovative artistic influences. The most important of the squares are the Burg and the Grand'Place. For some 1,000 years the Burg square has remained the symbol of the alliance of religious and civic authorities, as well as the seat of several public institutions, including the dispensing of justice.
Our trip will go west from Belgium into northern France and by early afternoon, arrive in Rouen, a charming, small town with quintessential Norman half-timbered buildings and cobblestone streets. Although Rouen was heavily bombed during the war, there are many medieval buildings left standing. It is flanked by lovely fountains and statuary. At the end of the street is the spot where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. A short drive from Rouen to the lovely coastal town of Honfleur. This is a little maritime city, which has somehow escaped the ravages of time and has managed to preserve the traces of a rich historical past. This makes it one of the most visited towns in France complete with picturesque backstreets and old houses. The group will dine at a local restaurant in Caen.
Following breakfast at the hotel this morning, drive to the storied town of St. Mere Eglise. The village of St. Mere Eglise played a significant part in the World War II Normandy landings. You will have time to visit the church in St. Mere Eglise and also the museum across the street. Then, it’s only a short distance from St. Mere Eglise to the historic D-Day landing beaches and the D-Day Landing Museum. After you visit the museum, it’s only a short walk to Omaha Beach where we will visit the American Cemetery - this cemetery occupies a plateau overlooking Omaha Beach and is the final resting place for 10,000 American soldiers.
After breakfast this morning, we drive south from Caen to the town of Giverny to visit Claude Monet's home, the "Father of Impressionism". Explore the garden of Claude Monet, where he painted the Water Lilies series. From Giverny, it is on in the heart of Paris. Where you will see Champs-Élysées and the 164-foot-high Arc de Triomphe, the Place de la Concorde and Garnier’s splendid Opera House with its Great Staircase, sumptuous foyer and auditorium, immortalized in the “Phantom of the Opera”. You will see Notre Dame, located in the oldest part of the city - the Ile de la Cite. Then to the famous Eiffel Tower. Originally, built for the Exposition of 1889 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution, the Eiffel Tower was due to be torn down in 1909, but was saved by the development of the wireless.
Overnight 3 nights in Paris.
The morning will be spent in Montmartre, followed by visiting the world famous Louvre museum on your own. For those who choose not to visit the Louvre, the afternoon will be free to explore the city on your own. Dinner this evening at a local Parisian restaurant.
After breakfast this morning, your day is free to do with as you want. What a great opportunity to tour, browse and shop the most famous city in the world. No deadlines for anybody as dinner tonight is on your own. A great option today would be a visit to the Palace of Versailles.
This morning an early transfer to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport for your flight home at 8:30am
