This coming Sunday, April 27, marks our final regular Fuel of the school year. We hope all youth can make it for a night of celebration and games, plus a cookout (please remember your $3).
Summer Fuel will continue on various Sundays beginning in May. Here are the details.
Six action-packed Summer Fuel nights are happening May – August, and we want all youth there!
From 6-9pm on Sundays: May 18; June 8; July 6, 13; August 3, 10
Each week we will have:
- A great dinner
- Extended games
- Something unexpected
- Helpful discussion
- Something you can use
- A cool video
- Great hangout time
We will talk about SALT this summer. Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:13 that we are the “salt of the earth.” That means we are distinctive and designed to be the “flavor” of Christ in a bland, sinful world. It also means we are meant to create thirst for Christ. We will talk about how we can do that as we serve and share and see some really cool conversation-starting videos along the way.
This year’s trip is July 19-26. Sign up here.
Our fifth summer mission trip to Ocean City promises to be an excellent time for fellowship, fun in the sun, outreach, great memories, and good old fashioned hard work! Don’t miss out in this great trip!

I’m hoping all of our youth will want to join in for Fuel this coming Sunday! It will be an exciting time where you get to hear and see what God is doing, and you’ll have a chance to get involved. Come for games, good food, youth testimonies, and something hands-on. Be a part of what God is doing!
We’re running low on youth volunteers for our biggest local outreach of the year!

Attention seniors (and parents of them):

Our Holy Week 2014 Schedule, below, is nicely complimented by Holy Week devotional booklets, written by our own Cyndi Word. The theme is In His Steps, to go along with our Sermon Series and are available at the table in the rear of the Sanctuary. Pick one up for your daily quiet time.

How ’bout that weather, eh?
It looks like this one took us by surprise. Because of the continuing snow and the road conditions, we are canceling Fuel tonight. Sorry about the late notice!
By the way, plan on getting into a conversation with that friend this week to talk about Christ! Share this video with them to get the conversation going, and come back next week ready to share what happened!
This Sunday at Fuel we will be watching the movie Soul Surfer, the story of Bethany Hamilton, a Christian teen who suffered a shark bite injury while surfing. We are excited for a fun night that will include discussion, a meal (bring $3), and other fun. I hope your student will be there.
About the movie, it’s rated PG and has very Christian themes. At the same time, there are some negative elements, including shirtless guys and girls in bikinis. I urge you to either preview the video or read thePlugged In review so that you are aware of these elements. I plan to mention these things prior to the video, as well.
One more thing. Our time will be slightly extended, 5:00-7:30pm. If you have any other questions, let me know.
Youth and Parents, plan to come to the pre-trip meeting for the Ocean City mission trip. It’s this Sunday, March 9, after the 11am service. Pizza will be provided.
The OC trip is our big youth mission trip for the summer.
