PICK OF THE MONTH:
A hot new place to have fun while glorifying God is The Lighthouse. This cool club is always having something going on and offers a wide variety of entertainment — from outstanding concerts to striking exhibits. Most shows are free in order to make it possible for all youth who would like to attend. Located in Oceanside’s JC’s cafe (by night known as The Lighthouse), this is definitely a place for you to check out!
