Resonate and Amplify students plan to arrive at 6:00pm for free burgers, to vote for new deacons, and to welcome our guest churches!
Cookout at the Greer’s
Wednesday, August 1
6:00PM – 8:30PM
Address: 3944 Old US Highway 45 S
WHEN: JULY 23-26, 6:00-8:00PM
WHERE: @LoneOakFBC D-Building
WHO: MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
WHAT: Free food, Worship, Games, and Fellowship
Whether it’s insecurity, doubt, fear of rejection, or the fear of unmet expectations, fear holds many of our students back. The problem with this is, of course, that God has called us to face our fears and lean-in to who He desires us to be. Scripture is clear: God empowers us to meet the tasks He’s set in front of us. We want our students to confidently embrace the plan God has for them. And so this year’s theme is called:
NEW THIS YEAR:
Instead of having multiple teams, this year there will be one EPIC battle of AMPLIFY VS RESONATE. Each night we will compete in games to earn points for your team, in addition to points for friends brought, Bibles, and team spirit. Wear your Amplify or Resonate swag each night to represent your team!
Also, new this year we will have free food available in the youth lounge from 6:00-6:30PM. Come early and stay late! Each night the gym will be open to play 9Square, Basketball, GaGa Ball, etc, or hang out in the youth lounge. On the final night we will once again have our MEGA SLIP-N-SLIDE!
Hope you can make it out each night for this awesome week! Make sure you invite a friend!

Is there competition?
Yes! Find out which team we are on at the Parent/Student meeting this Wednesday, June 20 @ 6:00pm in the Youth Worship Room.
Ever since the inception of GENERATE, two sides have been locked in epic battle: The Pack vs. The Pride. This video outlines how you can lead your tribe to victory (and be the ones holding Festus in triumph).
Is there a theme?
Yes! The theme is UPRISING.
- Day 1: Because there is no one like our God, we raise up in worship.
- “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe.” – Hebrews 12:28
- Day 2: Because Jesus died for us, we are raised to new life.
- “We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” – Romans 6:4
- Day 3: Because God loves us greatly, we rise above the world and love at all costs.
- “And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” – Ephesians 5:2
- Day 4: Because we have the Good News, we go and tell, raising the banner of the Gospel.
- “Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.” – Romans 7:4

Frequently Asked Questions About Ocoee River Rafting
Middle Ocoee River: This section is America’s most popular whitewater river. It is famous for 5 miles of continuous class III and IV rapids. The Middle Ocoee River has over 20 rapids and Grumpy’s, Double Trouble and Table Saw are just a few of them. Approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours is the time you will spend on the water. Total time with us would be ½ hour before the trip for check-in, a 10 minute bus ride to the river put-in, the water time of about 1 ½ to 2 hours and about a 20 minute bus ride back to the outpost totaling around 3 to 3 ½ hours.
Upper Ocoee River: This section is known for being the 1996 Olympic site for the kayak competition. It is about a 5-mile section of class III and IV rapids and pristine whitewater wilderness. Water time on the Upper Ocoee River is about 1 ½ hours. The total trip time is about the same as the Middle.
Full Ocoee River: If you want a real fun-filled, action-packed day we offer the Full River Trip. We start with a trip down the Upper Ocoee River and then we take you on a trip down the Middle Ocoee River. With around 10 miles of whitewater rafting, the Full River Trip takes about 3 – 3 ½ hours on the river. From check-in to check-out, expect this trip to take you around 5 hours.

Hike to Cummins Falls
Update: SnapChat has removed “Cosmo After Dark.” Some call it a win, which it is, but in all likelihood, we’ve only kicked the can down the road a little longer. Parents – please utilize resources like “Bark” to continue to monitor your students online use. I personally still do not support the use of SnapChat for teens.
