Each spring, all eighth grade students are invited to lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory. We leave from NFC after second service to celebrate the transition from middle school to high school. We return to NFC by 4 p.m.
This year’s celebration will be on Sunday, June 12.
Most of the middle school Sunday school teachers join us for this lunch, and it’s on us, our way of saying how much we appreciate that year’s 8th grade class.
Most years, we are joined by students from two other Friends churches in town, 2nd Street Community and North Valley Friends. Afterward, we always take a group picture in front of the Willamette River.
