LIFT Weekly Update

All about the Student Ministries at First Baptist Covington

Hey, everybody!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We do have so much to be thankful for...including the great stuff coming up here at LIFT!


There are just 2 Prayer Breakfasts left for this year! Believe it or not, school will be coming to a close before long. So, we'll have Prayer Breakfast Dec. 1st and Dec. 8th. Then we'll be off until Prayer Breakfast returns January 19th.


LIFT is on for Wednesday with great worship, the conclusion of our series on 1 Peter and transformation, and a lip sync contest...using puppets!


And don't forget that next Wednesday, Dec. 9th is LIFT Student Testimony Night! It is our students chance to stand up and share about all that God has done in their lives as we spend the whole evening celebrating. Then, Dec. 16th is our annual LIFT Christmas Party! On that night, students will bring THEIR OWN MONEY (around $20 is a good start) so that we can separate them into groups and give them the Christmas list of a less-fortunate child so we can all go to Walmart, buy gifts, bring them back, wrap them, eat food, and party! It's an extended night, so plan to arrive by 5:45pm and be finished by 8pm.


I regret to inform you that the High School Ski Trip is cancelled. We simply didn't have enough registrations to support the trip. However, be on the lookout for a fun winter activity coming up in late January just for High Schoolers!


Mark your calendars for Sunday January 10th. We are hosting a one-day conference for parents and teenagers called, "Devices: Living and Parenting in a World of Technology." It will be an incredible night that will equip your family to approach all the technology in your life with biblical wisdom. We're bringing in Adam McLane, author of "The Parents Guide to Social Media," as well as several other experts in various areas. The conference will be FREE, and you definitely don't want to miss it!
