Summer Events

Hey Everyone,
Just wanted to give you an update on all our summer events, with a description of each trip.
1. Junior High Camp - Student Life at the Beach: This year we are taking the JH on a separate summer trip. June 12 - 16 we will attend Student Life in Orange Beach, AL. We will stay at the Phoenix Condos right on the beach. Student Life is a great conference, great worship, concert and gifted speakers. Deposits are due now and balances are due in May. We are full for this trip.
I will have a parents meeting in May to answer all questions and get all forms filled out.
2. World Changers: This is our 3rd year to attend WC. Our numbers have grown each year, from 6 to 11 and now 17 this year. We will attend World Changers in West Memphis ARK. for a week of mission work. This camp is open to all youth, and the only cost is $50. This amount is due now also. Notarized forms need to be filled out this month. Again, I will have a meeting about this very soon. Bro. Stanley and I will go over to ARK on April 24th to see the lodging site and where we will work. June 20 - 27 is the date for this trip.
3. High School Summer Camp: July 6 - 10 at Student Life at the Beach as well. We have 4 spots left on this trip. Deposits are due now and final balances are due in May.
4. Super Summer: This is our final trip of the year. "SS" is our MS Baptist Youth Leadership Camp, held at Mississippi College. Youth have to have finished 8th grade to attend this camp, and also accomplish a list of requirements. The goal of SS is for our youth to grow to be leaders in our youth groups and in our church. We will have 6 youth attend this year.
Lastly, many thanks to the wonderful adults that have volunteered for these trips. All camps are filled on adult spots with the exception of Super Summer. I still need one female to attend this.
Please be in prayer for these events, as they always have a way of impacting our youth in a wonderful way.
