Do you feel uncertain or anxious about this school year?
Do your friendships need to get rebooted after
the awkwardness of this past year?
Do you wish you could "reset" your heart and mindset
to be anchored in the promsies of God?
We could all use a RESET
RESET is our new Fall kickoff event, taking place on a Friday night and all-day Saturday (not overnight). This is going to be a time to get our group together, with old friends and new friends, and to RESET... reset our hearts, our minds, our relationships, our expectations... because the gospel proclaims peace for the weary, anxious, and uncertain. We'll have a lot of fun, make new friends, sing some songs, and hear the gospel.
Come to church for a Mario Kart In-Real-Life event, and then come back Saturday morning and we'll take a bus to Fairwoods Christian Recreation Center in Uxbridge (just over an hour away). We'll have some organized activities and some free time for swimming, fishing, volleyball, and just hanging out. Josh Lin will be leading us in worship after lunch and after dinner, where we'll focus on Christ's promise of Peace. RESET will be a fun and meaningful time to reconnect with each other and center ourselves on the promises of God as we walk into the school year. Please register by Labor Day so we can make necessary arrangements ahead of time.
Fri, Sept. 17, 6pm-9pm (Mario Kart in-real-life)
Sat, Sept. 18, 8am-9pm (at Fairwoods Christian Camp)
Cost: $50/student before 9/5 or $60/student between 9/6-12.
Registration closes on 9/12 so we can finalize preparations in the week before the event.
Our Theme: Peace
The past 18 months have been crazy, stressful, and unpredictible. That much is obvious and doesn't need any explanation. Teenagers are anxious about what the future holds, stressed about school, and many of them have lost grandparents and other family members during this pandemic. The gospel is a message of peace, and that's something we all desperately need. We will launch our Youth Group year by exploring what this promise means as we look at God's gift of peace through faith in Jesus Christ, and then our own calling as peacemakers. The first few weeks of youth group will continue this emphasis to set the tone of our Gospel RESET to kick off this school year.
Come on Friday night for our Mario Kart in-real-life event, from 6pm-9pm. This will be in the parking lot at SSBC (pray for good weather!). Students will need to register for this event during their registration for RESET. This event will run very similarly to the youtube video posted below.
Return to SSBC on Saturday morning by 8:00am to load the bus. We'll head to FairWoods Christian Retreat Center in Uxbridge (around 1:15 drive). Our day will include large group activities, freetime (swimming, fishing, volleyball, gaga, etc) along with two worship/chapel sessions. Lunch and Dinner will be provided, please note any dietary restrictions in your registration form. We'll return back to SSBC around 9:00pm.
