~ Teen Camp ~
Our COLLIDE Teen Camp this summer is scheduled for June 27-July 1, 2016, at Hinds Community College in Raymond (Jackson), MS. There is an earlybird registration deadline of May 8, 2016; that cost is only $195. After that, the cost goes up to $225 until June 19, 2016. The sooner you register, the cheaper it is. And trust me, you do not want to miss this year's camp. Allen Griffin is the guest speaker, and he is phenominal!
Youth For Christ (YFC) sponsors many fun and worthwhile events throughout the year. One of these is their Extreme teen hangouts. There is one in Gulfport and one in D'Iberville!.The Extreme is open from 7:00-10:30 PM every Saturday night. It is only $5 to get in and it is loaded with fun -- skate park, basketball, video games, DJ and dance floor, cafe, and much more. See Pastor José for FREE passes.
~ Other Notes ~
I know there are many things in life that try to catch and keep the attention of teenagers. Unfortunately, many of those things also serve to draw teens away from God. However, I believe that if Christ is first in your life you can resist anything the devil sends your way. My goal is to offer many "things" to keep teenagers busy and help keep their focus where it should be. That is one of the reasons I've offered discounts to some of the upcoming events, and why I try to schedule so many free events.
Along the same lines, I have tried to make it clear to all of WCYM youth that there are 2 things that should NEVER be used as an excuse to miss any event we have: Money and transportation. If teenagers and parents will just work with me, I will see to it that everyone is able to participate in any event we do, and that they always have a ride to and from all events, including church on Wednesday nights. Please take me up on this by talking to me ahead of time so we can plan accordingly.
