New this year: OPEN RECREATION!

Most importantly, we will spend time together each day in worship and studying God’s Word. SoJo will lead us through 4 sessions based on the theme – This Changes Everything – based on 2 Corinthians 5:17, Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 

  • Session 1: Sin separates us from God.
  • Session 2: Forgiveness is available through Jesus.
  • Session 3: Our Christian life is not about being a slave, but about being a child of God.
  • Session 4: The celebration for each sinner-turned-child is a part of the story God is telling in our lives.

THIRST – RESONATE FALL RETREAT 2017

THIRST is the Resonate Fall Retreat for students who have a THIRST for God’s Word.  This event is for anyone who wants to grow in their walk with the Lord and gain real leadership experience. With a special emphasis on leadership, this is an event you don’t want to miss.

This year we’ll be working with LeaderTreks as we go through their program called “Team Up.” Team Up is a three day retreat designed to mold students into a unified team. The goal is to teach the building blocks of great teams through an interactive, hands-on approach. The LeaderTreks staff will use a variety of interactive games and initiatives as well as small group discussion to emphasize each building block. Students will have the opportunity to take a Team Role assessment to discover how they operate inside teams. In the end, you will leave the event energized and focused on being unified.

Each Wednesday night the Youth Lounge opens at 5pm. Students can purchase soda, coffee, or whatever food items is highlighted that week. On a rotating basis we’re asking adults/parents to hang out in the Lounge during that time to help set up the room, hang out while students are in there, and clean up at the end of the night.

Shifts will run from either 5:00pm – 6:00pm or 6:00pm – 7:00pm.  Email Patrick @ pgreer@loneoakfbc.org if you are interested in serving.
