LIFT Weekly Update

All about the Student Ministries at First Baptist Covington

Hey, everybody!

We are on the home stretch! It looks like we might just survive until Christmas!

Tomorrow morning is the LAST PRAYER BREAKFAST OF 2014! It will feature special Christmas Pancakes!

LIFT is also very special this week with our second annual LIFT Student Testimony Night! That means it is our students' chance to share what God has done in their lives in the last year. It's an awesome time of worship and fun! We will meet at regular time, 6-7:30pm.

Remember our major events coming up in 2015 as you plan for next year! We've got High School Big Day Out on February 7th, our Honduras Spring Break Mission Trip April 4th-9th, and next year's Summer Camp is July 13th-17th. Mark those calendars!

As you plan for 2015, keep in mind that it is good to begin planning not just the dates of upcoming events, but how you will pay for them. I encourage families to consider payments toward trips like Honduras or Summer Camp as possibilities for Christmas gifts. That is a good way to get family involved in support of these important opportunities in your child's life. Also, in the coming weeks we will begin the first of 2 fundraisers for the Honduras Trip. It will be a Student Labor Service, allowing students to offer up their help and skills to church members in exchange for money toward their mission trip. Services will include babysitting, leaf raking, yard work, house cleaning, car detailing, and anything else your student is willing to do. The holiday season may also be a good time to start sending out support letters for your trip.

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!
