Youth adventure 17

Youth Odyssey Adventure Retreat

May 31st - June 2nd, 2017

$0 - $150

This year’s Odyssey adventure will take us to Cleveland, TN (near Chattanooga) and the surrounding area. We’ll leave early on the morning of May 31 and make our way to Cleveland, TN. We'll spend the afternoon on a hike that will take us to 3 different waterfalls. On day 2 we'll go whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River. On Friday we'll take another hike to a set of waterfalls before beginning our journey home. The hikes to the waterfall will all be very easy, and not long or difficult.

Throughout the trip we'll have free time along with Bible studies and personal devotional time. The Bible studies will focus on the life of Joshua. We'll see that his life was an adventure with God. In our quiet times we'll discover lesser known men and women in Scripture who overcame significant odds in order to make an impact for God's kingdom.

The $150 covers all activities and most meals. Teens will need money to cover 3 meals. About 2 weeks before the trip we'll email parents a full schedule and a packing list.

Starting Point for Kids

June 4th, 2017

Starting Point for Kids, formerly advertised as I’m A Christian Now, is an in depth and comprehensive study for helping children (Grades 1-6) understand the decision they have made and what it means to live a Christian life. This class is designed for children who have made recent professions of Faith – this includes those who have not yet been baptized and those who have.

Topics covered include: Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Being a church member, Following God through one’s actions and Developing a quiet time.

We have found that children feel less pressured and are more open to discussion in a class setting. Much like Starting Point is the membership class for adults, Starting Point for Kids is catered to help children understand what it means to follow Christ and be a part of the Body of Christ.

This class will meet during the Sunday School hour (9:45 am) on June 4, 11 and 18. If you need to miss a Sunday, you can make it up with Leah Frances at another time.
