We are super excited that you (or your child) will be attending the Pulse event this Friday evening. I said in the confirmation message you got after RSVPing for the event that you would get more details a few days before the event so here we go :)
We do have enough people to need a bus so that is now our official mode of transportation. This also means there are more seats available than we had first anticipated so if you know people who still might be interested in attending please tell them we have room for them to join us. I would still like people to RSVP online so that I get people added to the list in the order they RSVP just in case we have an influx of registrations the next 48 hours.
I found out that the free My Pillows that will be given away are limited to the first 50,000 people to show up. To give us a little better chance to get there before all of the free pillows are gone we will now be departing at 5:15 pm. So please plan to arrive to Risen Savior between 4:45-5:00 pm if possible. This will give me enough time to get everyone checked in and collect forms and then be on the road right at 5:15.
We plan to depart US Bank Stadium at 10:30 pm and hope to arrive back at Risen Savior at 11:00 pm. This is subject to change depending on how difficult it is for the bus to depart US Bank Stadium. I encourage you to keep in contact with your child by cell phone for an accurate arrival time back at Risen Savior. We would appreciate it greatly if parents are at the church when we return so youth aren’t waiting for a ride late at night.
For youth (grades 6-12) attending - Here’s a link to the required release form that must be printed, signed, and turned in at check-in on Friday. You don’t need to bring this to the church prior to Friday but your child won’t be able to ride the bus with us without having this form so please ensure they have it on Friday. Here’s a link to the annual medical release that we must have on file for your child. Most 6-10th graders have turned this form in at some point this school year. Most 11-12th graders have not so if your child is in 11th or 12th grade please make sure you bring this form completed as well. If your child is in the 6-10th grades but they are not in our Faith Formation programs you will also need to make sure you complete the annual medical form.
For young adults and volunteers - There is a separate release form for you that I will have copies of for you to sign on Friday. You don’t need to complete the attached forms.
So to recap:
We are taking a bus.
Check-In starts at 4:45 pm on Friday.
Bus will depart at 5:15 pm.
We will depart US Bank Stadium at 10:30 pm.
We will return to Risen Savior at 11:00 pm.
Bring some money for concessions/food.
