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. Tom and his family (wife Jackie, daughter Katie, son Carson, and daughter Anna) live happily in an apartment in Jamaica, Queens.

Music will be led by Heartsong. HeartSong ministries 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 is Gospel-centered.

Team games will return!

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.

NIGHT LIFE

As we venture further into what it means to be “Unashamed,” the students, for both

Night life 1 and 2, will begin their journey in the auditorium where they will be challenged

and commissioned to follow the instructions for the evening through interactive video. From

there, they will be split into church groups and led by a FUGE staff member to the “Arena”, a

triangular structure in the middle of an auxiliary field on campus.

Night Life 1: Unashamed: Glow

Continuing the “glow-in-the-dark” and “neon” expressions from last year, the students,

adorned in glow-sticks and party gear, will venture to the arena to find 6 game stations

including glow-in-the-dark:

– Water sponge fight

– Giant Jenga

– Paint Wall

– Silly String War

– Shaving Cream war

– Cornhole Tourney

– Students and adults may dress in glow-in-the-dark attire during this night life.

Night Life 2: Unashamed: Shine

An immersive worship experience, students will journey to the “Arena” again to find the space

has changed. Four new stations challenge students to think and process every section of the

bible study while creating art themselves to express what they are learning

– Scripture Wall

– Growth Wall

– Chalkboard Wall

– Light Wall

Night life 3: MEGA RELAY

Get your game faces on and come ready to compete for the FUGE Cup

– This may take place in the afternoon at some locations.

Summer Calendars are Here

summer banner

Summer is officially here!

And we have a jam packed schedule.  We planned tons of activities and opportunities for you to be involved or get involved with the student ministry at Lone Oak First Baptist Church.  If you are a regular, come and have fun with old friends.  If you haven’t come in a while or have never been involved, now is a great time to reconnect.

Below you will find links to our summer calendars, starting with Summer Ops.  Summer Ops is our summer Wednesday night program.  We are mixing it up for the summer on Wednesday nights.  Instead of our usual program, we’ll spend the evening playing games, growing in our relationships, and having fun.  Each night there will be a devotional that will focus on how to pursue God this summer.

“The Talk” Series

 

Hello Parents,

You should have received an email via The Parent Cue regarding a new series called “The Talk” that we will be starting next week – and yes, it’s about Sex. Click Here to watch the series preview

If you have not received an email or are not signed up for the Parent Cue please fill out the form below:

Typically, when churches deal with the topic of sex, they either ignore the subject altogether or simply say that sex is bad. Instead, we want to have the talk. However, this won’t be a one-time lecture, but rather an on-going conversation that will open up the lines of communication between students and peers, small group leaders and parents. In this 3 week series we will be discussing this topic in a biblical manner.

In Session 1 (Let’s Talk About Sex), we’ll talk about God’s design for sex and what happens when it’s taken out of context.

In Session 2 (Let’s Talk About Technology), we’ll talk about how we treat ourselves and others online matters in real life.

In Session 3 (Let’s Talk About Pornography), we’ll talk about how our secret habits have real-life consequences.

Note: Sessions 2 & 3 Will be combined. Session 3 will take place in Small groups.

And in Session 4 (Let’s Talk About Boundaries), we’ll talk about how we need boundary lines and lines of communication to keep us from making big mistakes.

Some of you may have questions so I’ll do my best to share with you how we’ll go about teaching this topic. For starters we are using a Middle School based curriculum written by XP3 Students – all of these lessons are biblically based and are middle school age appropriate. Each week we will watch a Teaching Video together in AMPLIFY, then we will dismiss to an extended Small group time, there students will be able to discuss and ask questions in age/gender appropriate groups. If you would like to preview these teaching videos and small group questions I would be glad to let you do so. If you have any questions please let me know. We want to be sensitive and respectful to all of our parents in regards to this subject. Thank you for allowing your student to be apart of the Middle School Ministry of LOFBC.
