See You At The Pole

For the over 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.

There are two opportunities to unite in prayer with your friends:

  • DAY: SEE YOU AT THE POLE day is on Wednesday, September 27, at 7:00 a.m. local time. All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. SEE YOU AT THE POLE is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer for your generation.
  • WEEK: The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER (Sunday, September 24 through Saturday, September 30) encourages students to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the week. Whether you attend PUBLIC SCHOOL, PRIVATE SCHOOL, or HOME SCHOOL, gather your friends wherever and whenever and pray! The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER is dedicated to prayer and launching your on-campus Bible clubs, prayer strategies, and student ministries.

Be The Church

This summer, our staff has challenged the church to break the mold.  Instead of coming to church, it’s time to “Be the Church”.  All summer long, each member of the staff is delivering a different approach to meeting together as believers.  As we follow the first church from the book of Acts, we are practicing different aspects of what the earliest believers did.  Our key focus is to remain as true to Scripture as possible, while continuing to shine the light of Jesus Christ to our community.

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers. 43 Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need.[a] 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them[b] those who were being saved.

The summertime schedule for Sunday evenings is as follows:

June 18: Prayer Walk – Eric Sonnier
June 25: Worship Band/Discipleship – Derrick Laughlin
July 2: Backyard BBQ/Waterslide – Brian Wells
July 9/16: Off (Bounce Team here)
July 23: Game Night Fellowship – Cassandra Garbarino
July 30: Worship in the Park (I-10 Park) – Sean Bean
August 6: Ice Cream Social – Jeff Cook

Youth Fundraiser – Parents’ Night Out

Parents need a break too.  Our students want to help parents, while parents help us with raising money for our summer mission camp.  Our students and helpers want to help parents by planning an evening of events for kids (ages 4 – 10 yrs), including meals and games while parents are able to get a few hours off.  Kids can be dropped off at 5:30pm and children need to be picked up at 9pm. The cost is $10 per child and includes the cost of food.

All events will be held in the Family Life Center, and kids will be supervised by students and adults through the night. To come, please be sure to sign up so we can make plans for you to attend.
