Hi Ambrose Students,
As you all know Legacy Youth conference is fast approaching and will be taking place the weekend of March 17th-19th. We are still looking for volunteers for some of the different areas.
The areas that we still looking for some help with are meals, ushers, afternoon options, set up and take down of decorations or the gym and watchmen. Legacy Youth Conference is a great way to get involved, add some volunteer experience to your resume or just have a great time with other volunteers. If you would like to be involved or have any questions please contact Alex Wolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there,

Westside is having our annual community dinner on Friday, February 24 and we are in need of some help with childcare that evening. Needing 5-10 Ambrose students,that might want to help out for a couple of hours. We'd pay them each $15/hr for around 3 hours worth of work. It will be pretty chill (pizza, movie, maybe even a bouncy house) and we'll have a regular Westside volunteer around at all times just in case there are any questions/concerns.
This Oscar-winning film (best original screenplay) explores an unlikely romance (between the main character, played by Joaquin Phoenix, and his phone), the complexity of our relationship to technology, and the meaning of Incarnation. The film will be introduced by the Chaplain, Terry Fach. (Viewer warning: Her is rated R primarily for sex and brief nudity. Three sex scenes depict various nontraditional sexual encounters, none of which are two actual bodies having intercourse. The most intense sex scene is actually only heard, not seen. The sex in the film is explicit almost entirely on an auditory level. The film is also heavy on profanity
Hello everyone! Just a reminder that our upcoming Open House will be Thursday February 16.
A few things to be aware of:
potentially 200 people will be on campus therefore it will be noisy and busy in the halls and classes
Shine FM will be on campus doing a live remote
Master's Academy and Calgary Christian HS will also be bringing their Grade 11 students to campus
We really appreciate everyone being so willing to help out, and open our campus doors for this key critical event.
If you have any questions, contact Kalie at email@example.com. Thank you for your support!
