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!
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from Middle School! I would like to personally invite you to come on an exciting 8th grade only graduation trip, Saturday, May 19, 2018. This annual trip is a special part of your completion of Amplify Middle School Ministry. We will journey together to the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, KY to see the story of Noah’s Ark come to life. This will be a great opportunity to prepare you for the challenges to your faith that await you as you move up to High School. Not only will this trip be educational, but we will have a ton of fun! I have a few surprises in store to make sure this trip is one that you will remember for a long time!

Our theme this year is “ONE.”
Have you ever thought about how one moment can define history? Or how one decision can change a life? We know that it only takes one person to start a movement. There is power in one. And the power of one resounds through Scripture, and by studying ONE, your students will travel through the Word to discover a powerful message that God has for them: There is ONE God. ONE way to Him. ONE family united under His banner. And ONE mission we’ve been entrusted with. The study we’re going to be working through is called ONE and it’s an awesome look at the essential truths of our faith.
Every student who attends will receive an Amplify Hoodie. When you sign up online make sure you put down your correct size. All sizes are “adult.” The cost of the hoodie is included in your $50 for the total cost of the weekend.
