Youth Odyssey
May
30
to Jun 1

Youth Odyssey

Location: New Orleans, LA Cost: A $50 deposit is due by April 1. The full $150 is due May 1. 

Odyssey: a series of adventures that are filled with notable experiences and hardships.

Each summer our teen's take an Odyssey. This summer we'll be going to New Orleans. We'll be staying with our church partner, Restoration Church. The trip will be a mixture of fun experiences in New Orleans along with Bible studies.

Fun Activities: Wednesday afternoon - New Orleans Zoo, Wednesday night - laser tag, escape room, maze, cosmic golf and more Thursday - World War 2 museum Thursday Night - dinner out & a late night visit to Cafe du Monde Friday - swamp tour 

Quiet Times: New Orleans is a strategic and historic city. We have identified 4 events (explorers like Bienville, Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812, the Louisiana Purchase, and Masquerade Balls) and have connected them with biblical passages to teach a memorable lesson to teens. 

Bible Studies: New Orleans is one of the great food cities in the world. To take advantage of our location we'll focus the Bible studies on Biblical events involving food. The four sessions will cover God providing manna from heaven (God is our provider), the feeding of the 5,000 (Jesus has no limits in what He can do), the Prodigal Son (God celebrates with steaks when we return to Him), and the Lord's Supper (Jesus invites us to take part in His Kingdom).

Cost: $150 What's not covered in the $150? 2 fast food lunches, 1 dinner ($15-20), begniets at Cafe du Monde

Lodging: We'll be staying at Restoration Church in Metairie. Restoration is a newer church that our church has partnered with for the past few years. We've sent several teams to serve and stay at Restoration. They have converted Sunday School rooms into bunk rooms in order to host groups. We'll use their worship center for our worship services. The church is located at 2929 Metairie Court, Metairie, LA 70002.

VBS Volunteers

Over the last 5 years, VBS at FBC Starkville has grown to see over 300 kids throughout the week. In order for us to meet the physical and spiritual needs of each child and ensure we are creating an incredible, Christ-filled experience, we need around 100 volunteers to serve with us. Right now, we are about halfway there. However, we still have several important teaching roles that need to be filled. Would you consider serving with us as we “Gear up! Get ready! Game On!” during the week of June 4-8? 
 
If you would like to serve with elementary kids, please visit this link and find the area you are interested in. If your preferred area is already filled, please consider serving in another area.
 
If you would like to work with preschoolers, please contact Charity Gwaltney at cgwaltney@fbcstarkville.com.

Starting Point for Kids

Starting Point for Kids

Starting Point for Kids, formerly advertised as I’m A Christian Now, is an in depth and comprehensive study for helping children (Grades 1-6) understand the decision they have made and what it means to live a Christian life. This class is designed for children who have made recent professions of Faith – this includes those who have not yet been baptized and those who have. We ask that parents attend the class with their children. 

Topics covered include: Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Being a church member, Following God through one’s actions and Developing a quiet time.

We have found that children feel less pressured and are more open to discussion in a class setting. Much like Starting Point is the membership class for adults, Starting Point for Kids is catered to help children understand what it means to follow Christ and be a part of the Body of Christ.

This class will meet during the Sunday School hour (9:45 am) on April 8th & 15th. If you need to miss a Sunday, you can make it up with Leah Frances at another time.
