Goodbye textbooks, it is summer time! But don’t think it’s time for your kids to play video games and take endless selfies from the couch. At Faith Promise, we don’t believe summer is a vacation from spiritual growth, but we can combine that growth with endless fun. Our fpKids and fpStudents have many activities in store to keep your kids busy and spiritually fulfilled this summer.
To kick off the summer, fpStudents is jumping right in with Faith Promise Students Summer Kick Off (FPSSKO) for middle and high school students.
Wednesday, June 3, will seem like any regular youth night with a 6:30 pm service at each of our campuses, but hold on to your hats because the night is not over. At 8:30 pm, each campus will take a bus to the Pellissippi Campus for more mega worshipping. After worship, Pigeon Forge better take cover because the youth will then be bused to Wilderness at the Smokies. Your students will kick off summer with water slides, pools, bowling, laser tag, and much more.
The fun will wind down at 6 am on June 4 as the youth return to their regular campus. Students can be picked up between 7 and 7:30 am. Be sure to check with your student pastor at your campus to find out the exact time. The cost for this wild adventure is $35 and you can register online or at your campus by filling out a form. Encourage your students to bring a friend!
Once your teens have recovered from the kickoff, it will be time to pack up for the Movement Conference 2015 from July 15-19. Your students will travel to Johnson University in South Knox County to strengthen their relationship with the Lord and to prepare them to share their faith when they return to school in August. The $149 cost covers room, board, and all activities, including service projects, swimming, late night activities, and an afternoon trip to Dollywood. Most importantly, students from all campuses will join together to worship God. Register here.
And of course, our regular Wednesday services will continue throughout the summer. Not only is this a great way for our students to see their friends, but it is also a time to show the devil that he will not be able to get a grasp on the students as they stay focused on God all summer long.
Don’t worry, we also have some great activities in store for your elementary students as well. Our fpKids Camp is right around the corner. It will take place June 22-25 for students rising into 3rd-6th grades. Camp will take place at Fort Bluff Camp in Dayton, Tenn. The cost of the camp, which includes everything but clothes and personal items, is $249. Camp is jampacked with tons of activities including water slides, putt putt golf, wet and wacky games, late night activities, and much more! During their stay at fpKids Camp, the students will also have times of worship, fun, and creative activities centered on God. More info here.
Each campus may hold individual events throughout the summer for their students. Plug into one of our five area campuses to find out what is available for your children this summer.
