OH SNAP!!! CAMP IS COMING!!!
We believe that camp has the power to change a student’s life. The theme for CENTRIFUGE 2013 is The Big Picture. It’s all about the gospel and how it didn’t begin in the New Testament. It was there, “In the beginning,” at the genesis of everything. Across the whole of human history, God’s grand narrative of love and redemption has been unfolding, a love gloriously displayed at the cross. This is the story of Jesus, and all history and Scripture point us to this good news.
Teenagers live in a world defined by pressure—and with no shortage of opinions on how they should handle it. At Fuge Camps for 2013, your students will encounter THE BIG PICTURE. Our worship leader for camp will be Joseph McMurray and worship band will be the Matt Collins Band. For more details contact Jennifer Coulter in the church office or email jcoulter(at)fbcfairhope.org
