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 Rob Turner. Rob is the Director of Discipleship and Training at The Bridge Church in Nashville, TN. Rob is a gifted leader and communicator of the Gospel. Rob has been preaching at student camps and conferences across the country for over 20 years. He is married to his wife Angela and has three kids. Rob is one of the best and one of our favorite youth speakers.

Music will be led by Heartsong. Heartsong is a worship band from Cedarville University in Cedarville, OH. They exists to communicate the livable reality of the gospel as seen through genuine worship. Whether at a large conference or small youth event, HeartSong teams intentionally balance music, Scripture, and life stories to engage audiences in a way that brings glory to God and leads others to worship.

TRIBE WARS ARE BACK!

Compete all weekend long on your TRIBE. You’ll be placed on the Troop (Purple), Army (Green), Pack (Blue), or the Pride (Red). We’ll play team games all weekend to earn points for your TRIBE. Be on the lookout for some classics like Havoc Ball and Shankapotomus along with some new games as well. Be sure to rep your team colors and get ready for war.

Most importantly, we will spend time together each day in worship and studying God’s Word. Rob will lead us through 4 sessions based on the theme – Prodigal- based on the passage “The Prodigal Son” found in Luke 15. 

Lost. We’ve all been there. And we’ll probably be there again.

Jesus was pointing to that truth when He told the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11–32). When He compared the brothers in this story, Jesus showed us that there are two kinds of lost people: those who know they are lost and those who don’t. He wanted us to know that there’s more than one way to be lost and wandering from Him. Thankfully, He also gave us a way to come back home; not through rule-following or self-righteousness, but by receiving our heavenly Father’s unconditional love.

Wherever you’re wandering, are you ready to come home?

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.

  • Session 1: On The Outside
  • Session 2: Invite Them In
  • Session 3: In Our Shoes
  • Session 4: The Great Invitation

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

This is going to be one of those events that people will talk about all year long.  Don’t be the person who just has to hear about it. See it for yourself!

Our camp pastor for the week will be Tom Richter. Tom Richter is the pastor of New Hope Church in Queens, NYC. Tom speaks around the country with the simple goal to “make much of Jesus.” He is the president of Urban Impact, a missions ministry designed to reach out to immigrants from “unreached people groups” as they arrive in New York.

We will divide into teams based on bandana colors and compete for the Dnow Champions.  We will be playing games like old favorites like Shank-a-potumus along with some new games like the Great Savalonian Hunt.  Games are going to be on a level unlike every before.

Most importantly, we will spend time together each day studying God’s Word. Tom will lead us through 4 sessions based on the theme OVERCOME. Jesus overcame sin. Jesus overcame death. Jesus has overcome the world. In Christ, you can overcome sin. In Christ, you can overcome death. In Christ, you have overcome the world.
