  • 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 leave Joelton on Thursday morning, stay overnight in the mystery city Thursday night, and then we will drive back Friday afternoon/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!
