Dnow is the event that you look forward to every year. Don’t miss the biggest and best Dnow in the history of Lone Oak FBC.

Our camp pastor for the week will be the one and only TOM RICHTER! You may remember him from every other Dnow we have ever had!  He’s awesome and you won’t want to miss his hilarious stories and challenging messages about Jesus.  Tom is the pastor of a church located in North Alabama, called Cullman First Baptist Church.  Before moving to Cullman, AL Tom served for 14 years as a pastor in New York City at a church called New Hope Christian Church. Tom is a Murray State University graduate, and has his M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary.

Music will be led by Issac Pittman. Issac is a talented musician and an awesome man of God. Throughout his musical career, he has shared the stage with several international artists including Brandon Heath, Jars of Clay, Bethany Dillon, Shane & Shane, Rachel Lampa, Taylor Sorensen, and Meredith Andrews. Today Isaac Pittman leads worship for numerous conferences, youth events and camps locally and across the United States. Issac will also be leading worship for those of us who attend summer camp in Chicago this year.

NEW THIS YEAR: CAMP WIDE GAME!

Everybody playing the same game at the same time! Yes it will be awesome!  In addition to open rec, we’ll also play a camp-wide game that will keep you fired up all day long.  Want to know what it is? Too bad! You’ll have to show up to find out!

OPEN RECREATION!

It’s back! In addition to a camp wide game you will have open recreation all afternoon.  That means from 1pm – 5pm, you can climb on the Aerial Adventure Park, zip down the Zip-Lines, of shoot your friends while playing Bazooka Ball or Laser Tag.  All the other open recreation options will be available as well, basketball, gaga-ball, volleyball, and Frisbee golf.  Recreation just got a whole lot more fun and exciting!

Most importantly, we will spend time together each day in worship and studying God’s Word. Tom will lead us through 4 sessions based on the theme – OUTCAST – based on the passage “The Woman at the Well” found in John 4. 

Jesus is all about the outcast: the lost, the broken, and those on the fringe. Jesus, the Messiah, took time for kids and people with incredibly contagious and deadly diseases. His close disciples included ordinary fishermen with dirt under their nails and even the dreaded tax collector. Jesus saw beyond our groups of “accepted” and “outcasts”—beyond race, gender, or social standing—and into the hearts of people he loved.

That’s what this series is all about: seeing others through the eyes of Jesus and inviting the outcasts in.

Last Minute Tips for the Fall Retreat

I hope you are looking forward to this weekend. It’s going to be a great time. You are going to learn a lot and have a blast.  Below are a few last minute reminders and some veteran tips for those new to the Fall Retreat!

A few last minute reminders:

  • Check-in/Departure is at 4:30pm.  We’re leaving a little earlier so we can eat dinner at camp.
  • Linen’s are NOT provided.  Don’t forget your sleeping bag and pillow!
  • Be sure to look over the packing list. You need everything on there except maybe the sunscreen.

Here are a few veteran tips for the Thirst Fall Retreat

  • Bring a flashlight (preferably a headlamp) – Our cabins do NOT have electricity so you’re going to want a good light.  The best type of light is a headlamp, that frees up both of your hands while you’re getting yourself settled.
  • Bring a water bottle – Fill up the water bottle with water or Gatorade during breakfast and lunch.  Then you have something to drink anytime you want.
  • Bring gloves, sock hat, warm stuff – It’s going to be cold at night. You’ll like having your warm stuff on when you leave the fire and go back to your cold bed.
  • Bring an extra pair of shoes – It’s probably going to be a little muddy and you might like a fresh pair of kicks to wear back at the cabin.

These retreats have the potential to literally change your life. Maximize what God can do by coming with a great attitude, ready to learn, and excited about meeting with God.

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

THEME:

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!
