LIFT Weekly Update

All about the Student Ministries at First Baptist Covington

Hey, everybody!

We have got tons of great stuff coming up! Read on, and mark your calendars!

We do have PRAYER BREAKFAST tomorrow at 7 or 8am as usual. Plus, we've got a great LIFT coming up Wednesday with FREE DINNER and the story heats up in The End of the Beginning! Check out last week's message below, along with follow-up questions!

The Middle School Mystery Retreat is coming up Nov 7-9, and signups are now open HERE! Students don't get to know what is going to happen, they just show up and trust that they will have a great time! It's only $100 for a very full weekend, so register today!

This Sunday Night at LifeLine, we'll continue our World Religions study by going on a FIELD TRIP to St. Pius Catholic Church in Conyers! We will leave at 5:30pm from the annex and return by 7:30pm.

We've got 2 great options for camp this year, and I'd love to know your opinion. Option 1 is Crossings Camp, June 1-5, which would be a phenomenal classic camp experience with lots of opportunities for discipleship and spiritual growth. Option 2 is Student Life @ Daytona, July 13-15, which would be similar to last year with top-notch worship and Bible Study at the beach. Both are fantastic options, and neither will disappoint! Reply to this email with your vote!

Don't forget that Sunday Oct. 5th is our annual Church Picnic at 4pm at the FFA Camp! It will be tons of fun for the whole family, and it's only $3/person!

Finally, remember that we have a Missions Project on Saturday Oct. 11th. We'll head over to our church missions partner Woodland Hills Church in Atlanta to assist them in hosting a very large Fall Festival for their community. We'll provide popcorn, games, candy, and more for that day. We will leave at 1pm and return to the church around 7pm that day. There is no cost involved, but it would be great if you could bring a bag of candy or two to pass out. Families are welcome!

The LIFT Supper Schedule is below, and our first one for the year is next week. Many of you signed up at our Parent Meeting. Let me know if you'd like to be added to an open spot!
