ANNUAL ENVIRONMENTS

WISE UP WEEKEND (DNOW) (Middle School and High School)

Wise Up Weekend is a gathering of our students in the 6th-12th grade that takes place each February. This event is very similar to what most people call a Disciple Now Weekend. During the weekend, we will discuss how to have a relationship with God and how that relationship with God should affect our everyday life. There will be four main sessions filled with incredible worship, relevant teaching from the Bible, and lots of crazy games. At night, students will stay in a host home, provided by one of our church members, with two small group leaders and a small group of their friends that are the same age and gender. Wise Up Weekend is an incredible and potentially life-changing weekend!

BIG STUF MIDDLE SCHOOL SUMMER CAMP

BigStuf is our annual camp experience for middle school students. At BigStuf, students will have an incredible worship experience led by some of the country’s best worship leaders and communicators. BigStuf is designed to provoke a new perspective, spur spiritual growth and inspire students to embrace that itch inside of them, that thing telling them they can have an impact on their world. Whether that world is their high school, a village in Kenya, or literally the globe- we believe that God has wired each of us to do great things through and for His name.

HIGH SCHOOL SUMMER CAMP

High School is our annual camp experience for high school students. At High School Camp, students will have an incredible worship experience led by some of the country’s best worship leaders and communicators. High School Camp is not just a place for students to hear life-changing truth. It’s a place that helps them experience it, remember it, and learn how to apply it.

THRIVE (FALL RETREAT)

(Middle School and High School)
Thrive is a weekend event for middle school and high school students where we focus on their personal relationship with God, through engaging worship, relevant messages, and quality time with their small group leaders and friends. Thrive is held each Fall at Camp Baldwin in Elberta, AL. Camp Baldwin offers an incredible environment for students to escape the everyday distractions of their lives and focus on who God is and what He has to say about the issues that they are facing.
