Evening Sessions

~~~~Reserved for active participants and their families~~~~
This evening time together is highly recommended for a complete TeenPact experience. In addition to the time at the Jonah Business Center, these evening sessions at the church give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment.  Students play games, participate in small groups, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a spiritual message from the Class Director. Sharing extra time together with an emphasis on students’ relationships with God, combines their Legislative academic day, interactive learning experience, and encouragement in Christ together for a rich growing experience.  Please bring your Bible. Evening sessions are held Monday (February 19th) from 5:30p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and Tuesday-Wednesday (February 20th & 21st) from 3:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. The sessions will be at North Christian Church located at 2015 Tranquility Road Cheyenne, Wyoming. Students planning on participating will want to wear casual clothing. Please review our casual dress code. Do not drop students off earlier than 3:30 p.m. to ensure chaperones are onsite. If a ride is needed to transport your student, let Les Silvey know ahead of time for transportation planning.

(Note: Due to feedback from prior years, recommendations for reserving night sessions to active participants and their families ONLY has prompted this change. Any questions, call Les Silvey.  Thank you.)
