PassportChoices 2010: Barefoot
It’s hard to believe that the time for Passport is here again! In less than three weeks, twelve of our youth and three of our bravest adults are headed to Wingate, North Carolina and the campus of Wingate University to participate in PassportChoices, a missions-based youth camp run by Passport, Inc. We’ll be joined by four youth and a chaperone from Tarwallet Baptist. This is a very exciting time for the youth (and the chaperones-I had a blast last year and am already looking forward to this year’s trip!). Please pray for our group as we travel and spend a week worshipping God, serving others, bonding as a group, and growing in our personal relationships with Christ.
For those of you with students going, we will be meeting at the church Sunday morning, July 18th, at 8:15am. We’ll pack the vehicles, take a picture, and depart! We should return around 6pm to FBC on Friday, July 23rd.
Thanks to the church and all individuals who donated and volunteered and made it possible for our youth to go on this trip! The Sunday after camp, July 25, the worship service will be a recap of the week. The youth will have a chance to share their experiences and participate in the service, so make plans to be there and be a part of that! Read the rest of this entry »

Lock-in at FBC on June 18
As the title of this section implies, we’re planning a lock-in at the church for Friday evening, June 18 at 7 pm through Saturday morning, June 19 at noon. Activities in the planning stages include tie-dying t-shirts, finger painting, and hopefully a very interesting scavenger hunt. Details are being finalized, so please be on the lookout for emails in the very near future regarding what to bring and how you can help!
In the meantime, please email Julie and let me know if you (your student) will be able to attend. Please feel free to bring friends!! This promises to be an event of epic proportions!
“In the Kingdom of God, service is not a stepping-stone to nobility: it is nobility, the only kind of nobility that is recognized.”
