HSM Rocky Summer Trip PAYMENTS

Date: 03/01/2019 - 04/30/2020
Time: 12:00 am
Location:

ROCKY REGISTRATIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED AND FULL!  If you did not already register and have an interest in joining us, please email kara@westwoodchurch.net to be placed on a waiting list in the event of cancellations.

Dear Westwood High School Ministry students & parents,

It’s that time of year again!  Time to start thinking about our annual summer trip – and how you can register soon!  This year, we are excited to be going to a conference put on by our denomination once every 3 years: Rocky Mountain High in Estes Park, CO.

The dates for this year’s trip are: July 25th – 29th, 2020.  The summer trip is a great opportunity for your student to be challenged to grow as a follower of Jesus as well as make incredible memories and build friendships with other HSM students.  We strongly encourage you to consider sending your student to this life changing event!

What you need to know:

  • All the information that you could need/want is found at: synodyouth.org/rocky-mountain-high/
  • You MUST be registered online by January 29th if you are planning on going, as we will not be able to guarantee spots for our large group unless we can submit our group registration then.
  • Registration is online again this year and IS NOW OPEN!! To register for Rocky 2020, please go directly to: apps.synodyouth.org/form/rmh and fill out the online registration form.  If you have questions or are not able to register online for any reason, please let us know – we will help you out.
  • The cost per student for the trip is $440* which includes all transportation, housing, conference and food (both on site as well as in transit). *There are optional ‘Recreation Plus’ choices you could opt to do — these will be an additional cost on top of the registration fee.  [If you want to choose a Rec Plus option, you list your top choices in order of preference when you register.  You are not guaranteed to get your top picks.  We will be notified at a later date which options each person got assigned and thus you will not pay for your Rec Plus options until the final payment due.  (At that point in time you will know what you got into and how much you owe.)]
  • If you’re able to pay in full up front, that would be very helpful and you’re welcome to do so!  However, if a payment plan would help you and your family, this amount can be paid in a total of 3 installments:

 

  • Although you register through the RCA website, payments are submitted separately to Westwood and will be collected online through the church website again this year. Click on one of the above links to submit a payment.
  • By signing up and paying a deposit, you are agreeing to follow through with paying in full (as the church has to pay in full up-front to secure your student’s spot). All payments are non-refundable.  If you are paying in installments, please be sure to pay on or before each deadline.  If you are late to make a payment, a $10 late fee will be automatically tacked on to the payment that is late.
  • If your student is interested in attending, but the financial commitment would prevent them from registering, please fill out a scholarship assistance application form by mid-January at the latest and talk to a leader ASAP. Scholarship Assistance Application Form HSM 2020
  • Any questions? Contact kara@westwoodchurch.net

Please prayerfully consider helping your student to attend Rocky Mountain High this summer… we’re confident it will be an amazing experience for everyone!

Sincerely,

Kara Willems, Dan & Sheila Schoessler & the HSM Team

Dear Westwood Middle School Ministry students & parents,

It’s that time of year again!  Time to start thinking about our annual summer trip – and how you can register soon!  This year, we are excited to be going to Loveland, CO to serve the community there through Group Mission Trips.

The dates for this year’s trip are: July 19th – 24th, 2020.  The summer trip is a great opportunity for your student to be challenged to grow as a follower of Jesus as well as make incredible memories and build friendships with other MSM students.  We strongly encourage you to consider sending your student to this life changing event!

What you need to know:

  • You MUST be registered online by February 9th if you are planning on going, as we will not be able to guarantee spots for our large group unless we can submit our group registration then.
  • THERE IS A 2-STEP Sign-up Process:
    1. Submitting your trip deposit through our church website. *see info below
    2. Filling out the registration form with GROUP Mission Trips
  • The cost per student for the trip is $360* which includes all transportation, housing and food (both on site as well as in transit).
  • If you’re able to pay in full up front, that would be very helpful, and you’re welcome to do so! However, if a payment plan would help you and your family, this amount can be paid in a total of 3 installments:
  • Although you register (later) through the Group Mission Trip website, payments are submitted separately to Westwood and will be collected online through the church website again this year. (Click on the above links)
  • By signing up and paying a deposit, you are agreeing to follow through with paying in full (as the church has to pay in full up-front to secure your student’s spot). All payments are non-refundable.  If you are paying in installments, please be sure to pay on or before each deadline.  If you are late to make a payment, a $10 late fee will be automatically tacked on to the payment that is late.
  • If your student is interested in attending, but the financial commitment would prevent them from registering, please talk with us and we can discuss the possibility of some financial assistance.  Here is a scholarship form that we request you fill out and submit ASAP: Scholarship Assistance Application Form MSM 2020
  • If you would like to participate in an individual fundraiser opportunity to help cover some of the cost of your trip, we will once again be offering the Eileen’s Cookie Dough fundraiser to any interested students.  You have from now until January 29th to pre-sell 3lb. tubs of cookie dough.  Each tub costs $15 (you earn $6 each) and you will receive a check from Westwood to reimburse you for the proceeds you earn around the time of your final payment.  Here are the forms for you to sell with: Eileen’s Cookie Dough Order FORMS 2020  Remember that you must turn in the money for your sales with your sheet on or before January 29th.  All checks should be made payable to Westwood Church, NOT Eileen’s Cookies.

Join us for a fun afternoon getting to know some other people from Westwood, and you’ll even get to enjoy a free lunch while you’re at it. Of course, our primary hope is that you’ll find the right people to journey together with in a Life Group, but if you come to Group Connect and then end up not jumping into a Life Group, that’s fine too. You’ll still have a good time eating and connecting with other people!

Childcare is provided, and so is lunch for adults and kids alike, so please let us know you’re coming so that we can plan accordingly!

The quick & easy sign up form is below, and feel free to email quinn@westwoodchurch.net if you have any questions.

Hope you’ll sign up today!
