LIFT Weekly Update

All about the Student Ministries at First Baptist Covington

Hey, everybody!

It's all coming together! Our crazy-awesome summer is off to a great start! Thanks to all the students and families helping out with VBS this week! We had a great kickoff last night, and we are looking forward to more fun tonight.

LIFT is still happening this week from 6-7:30pm for our students who are NOT helping with VBS. We are asking VBS volunteers to stay at VBS until the end and keep serving those kids! For everyone else, though, we'll have a laid-back night learning how to worship without music! At 8:30pm when students volunteering at VBS are done, I'll take them over to Scoops for ice cream to say thanks for your service.

There is NO LIFELINE this Sunday night, but it will return next week.

Summer Camp @ Daytona Beach is July 13-17 and is FULL. Remember there is a very important pre-trip Parents Meeting coming up June 10th at 7:30pm after LIFT!

LIFT Lake Day is coming up June 17th! We'll leave the Annex at 1pm, head out to Lake Oconee for an afternoon of swimming, tubing, boarding, and fun. We'll cookout dinner and return to the Annex by 8:30pm. And it's all FREE!

Finally, to round out our packed summer of fun, we will be heading to Six Flags on June 24th in the place of LIFT. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased anytime at the church or at LIFT between now and then. Students will be responsible for dinner at the park. We will leave at 12:30pm and return by 10pm.
