Habakkuk 2:14, Ephesians 4, Colossians 1:27-29
Student Summer Hangouts: June 20, July 18, July 25, August 1
On Sunday mornings we meet from 10:30am-12:15pm upstairs in room 204. It is meant to be a connecting point for new students as well as a reconnecting point for our current students. The morning includes a hangout time, worship and relevant biblical teaching.
Wednesday Nights: IGNITE
All 7th - 12th grade students join together on Wednesday Nights during the school year in the Student Room for fun games, engaging worship and small group discussion. 7:00pm - 9:00pm. If you're visiting for the first time or have been here for 15 years, join us! The first Wednesday of every month is called "LIT" which includes fun games and a longer time in a large group format. The other Wednesdays are called "Fireside" which focus more time in small groups on a deeper relational level.
Throughout the semester we have planned events every month, in order to help build better community and engagement among our students. Events range from retreats, to service projects, to just having fun together.
Global Outreach (GO) Trips
GO Trip teams are made based on application and interviews. We raise tax deductible donations individually and as a team for these trips. There is a parent meeting in November with the GO Trip location reveal for the upcoming summer trips.
The stateside trips typically costs $575, which includes food, housing, and resources needed for ministry while there.
Last summer we partnered with "Battle Cry Ministries" in Texas to serve the communities effected by Hurricane Harvey. The trip focus is relief efforts.
Interntional trips typically cost $800 - $1700, which includes airfare, food, housing, and resources needed for ministry while there.
Previously we have partnered with Mission of Hope Haiti, an organization that daily serves the people of Haiti with orphan care, health care, education, church advancement, nutrition, and countless other projects.
This summer we rerouted to Mexico City when travel advisories to Haiti became severe. Our mission became highly relational partnering with Iglesia Biblica Christiana and doing VBS, open air evangelism, and sports ministry.
