LIFT Weekly Update

All about the Student Ministries at First Baptist Covington

Hey, everybody!

We are gearing up for a pretty exciting long as you can survive the end of the school year!

The last Prayer Breakfast of the school year is tomorrow! Come eat and pray before school together one last time, and remember to maybe bring something nice, like a card or small gift, for our lovely ladies that have been so faithful to show up early and cook for you each week!

LIFT, is on for this week, and we'll have a new game called "King of the Bling," more great worship, and a new series called "Rescue!" Check out last week's conclusion to "When God is Silent" below, along with follow-up questions!

There is NO LIFELINE THIS WEEK! Happy Mother's Day!

Summer Camp this year is July 13-17, and we'll be heading to Student Life @ Daytona Beach for an incredible week! Sign-ups are now open HERE, but there are only a couple of spots left!

Graduate Sunday is coming up May 17th! It includes recognition in our morning services, a slideshow of favorite pictures, family pictures, a luncheon, and the presentation of scholarships! Seniors, remember, your APPLICATIONS AND PICTURES ARE DUE IN THE CHURCH OFFICE BY TODAY, MAY 4TH!!!

May 24th, our church family is taking the night off to head to Faith Night at the Braves Game! We'll leave the church at 12:45 (giving you time to pick up a quick lunch after church), and head over to catch the Braves game at 1:30pm, followed by a concert by Tenth Avenue North! Tickets are available in the church office and are $15/each.
