CHESS Open House - June 2
Location: South Church, 5250 Cornerstone Dr., Lansing
Time: 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Questions: Contact Marcia Holmes
We know how busy your schedules are, and that’s why we keep CHESS so flexible – but there is ONE meeting we believe important enough to ask all of you to attend: Our annual CHESS Open House. Displays, Membership Renewal forms, and Sign-up sheets for the large variety of CHESS activities will be available for you in South Life Center from 6:30-8:30pm.
We would REALLY like to have ALL CHESS families represented there that evening, so we hope you'll make it a priority and we anticipate seeing as many as possible in attendance that night!!
The Open House is an information sharing and gathering time… an opportunity to renew your CHESS membership for the 2015/2016 school year - at the SPECIAL Open House rate, choose the area in which you’re willing to serve next year and turn in all those boxtops and labels for education you've been saving! Then find out what’s happening with CHESS for the summer and coming school year. Sign up for the things you'd like to participate in and the things you're willing to help with, plus enjoy the fellowship of other like-minded homeschoolers.
Here is some of what will available at the Open House:
- Displays showcasing all that CHESS offers (as long as we have volunteers.)
- Sign ups to participate in upcoming activities and offerings.
- Refreshments and fellowship.
- Membership applications for the new school year, so you can renew for the Open House rate of $20/family or $10/single parent family. (This offer expires that night!)
- Sign up to volunteer as a part of one of the following teams: Enrichment, Connections, Encouragement, Information, Resources, and Vision.
- Groups, outside of CHESS, that offer classes and activities for homeschoolers.
If you haven’t yet attended a CHESS Open House, you don’t know what you’ve been missing!
**If you are hosting a table at the Open House or you are bringing a display for one of the ministry areas, please have it set-up by 5:45pm. We are trying to have everything ready to go by 6:00pm and we would like to allow volunteers to do a run through before the Open House begins.
Pre-Open House Kickoff…
Time: 6:30pm before the actual Open House begins.
There will be a BRIEF gathering time in the Sanctuary to discuss some of the new activities coming to CHESS. If you attend the kickoff, you will receive a stamp which will provide you with an extra $5 off your membership.
