  • Short Mountain Bible Camp: (PLEASE READ ALL THE ANNOUNCEMENTS)
    • When: June 25-30th                 ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
    • For: Ages 9-18 yrs. old 
    • Details: 
      • We will depart from Joelton Church of Christ on Sunday morning, (June 25th), by 12:00pm at the latest (preferably by 11:50).
        • We are providing pizza and beverages directly after church service for anyone who is going to camp!
      • We will return to Joelton Church of Christ on Friday, (June 30th), between 12:00 and 1:00pm. We will contact you on the way home to give you a more accurate arrival time. It will depend on the time we leave camp and the amount of traffic there is on the way back.
  • Parents: please encourage your child/(ren) not to bring electronics to camp!
    • At the counselors meeting, they decided this year that the cabin counselors are going to collect each camper’s electronics, and the counselors will keep them all week, unless there is an emergency.
    • I am in agreement with this decision, because I believe the campers should not be on their phones at camp anyways.
    • If there is an emergency, myself and the counselors will have their phones with them. I am not sure how good/bad the signal is at camp, but if there is an emergency, please call me at 770-656-0819 or call Short Mountain at (615)-563-4168.
  • Please read through the packing list to make sure you pack everything your child/(ren) will need!!  ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
  • Each camper must to fill out a health form, and get it notarized before June 25th!! (Mrs. Darlene can notarize it if you bring it to her office) Please don’t sign the form until you bring it to Mrs. Darlene.
  • Short Mountain Bible Camp has made some changes this year, so please visit their new website for more information: www.shortmountainbiblecamp.com

  • Vacation Bible School (VBS):
    • When: July 9-13th
    • For: 5th graders and younger. We will need our 7-12th graders to help with whatever is needed, which will most likely be:
      1) Setting up the props/stage decorations at the beginning of the week
      2) Leading a group of kids during the week (leading them to and from stations) and…
      3) Taking down the props/stage decorations at the end of the week.

  • End of Summer Mystery Trip:
    • When: July 20-21st
    • For: 7-12th graders.
    • Mark your calendars! This will be our last official event of the summer. We will take a 2 day trip to a nearby city, but the students will not know which city we are going to until a few days before the trip (hence the “mystery”). We will do several fun activities in the city during our two days that we are there. 
    • We will leave Joelton on Thursday morning, stay overnight in the mystery city Thursday night, and then we will drive back Friday evening. This is the first time we have done a trip like this in the summer, so you don’t want to miss out! This will be a fun way to end the summer before you have to go back to school, so mark your calendars! (July 20-21st)

  • Bible Bowl:
    • As many of you know, Bible Bowl is a spiritual program that encourages students to study and learn scripture. Each year there is a specific book/(s) of the Bible that are selected to study in depth. This year the books that were selected are Mark, Philippians, and Colossians.
    • The students who have been studying for the Bible Bowl will take a final test on September 9th, and the test will take place at Tennessee Tech University (in Cookeville, TN) in the gymnasium.
    • If you would like to support the students on September 9th, or if you have any questions about Bible Bowl, please contact James or Rosa Davies at church or check out the Bible Bowl website: http://sycamorebiblebowl.com

  • Fall Retreat:
    • When: September 15-17th
    • For: 7-12th grades

  • Jackson’s personal thoughts:
    • I am really excited for the upcoming events we have planned for the next few months. There are lots of opportunities for the teens to grow together. I really want this summer to be an exciting time for the teens to spend time together, so I hope you all can participate in the events/trips we have planned from now through the summer!
    • As you may know, we will promote the current 6th graders into the youth ministry at the beginning of the summer, and we will also keep the current seniors through the end of summer. Therefore, we should have a larger number of teens at each event, as well as some new faces in the youth ministry during the summer!
