Saturate USA

Saturate USA is a God-sized vision to take the love of the Gospel to 120 million households by the end of 2027. The hope is to spark true repentance and revival in our beloved country. Please share this vision with your friends and colleagues so that they can join this exciting movement.

Our country needs to rediscover the message of the Gospel and we need to cry out in prayer for revival to sweep the land. United in love, and with God on our side, we can win America back to Christ.

June 13-16, 2022

Speaker: Jasmine Hoychick
Worship: Port City Worship

Early Bird Pricing: $212 per camper (Regular Cost: $227)


What is the dress code?

Our goal and prayer is for God to be glorified in all areas of our ministry and for clothing not to become a distraction. We ask all campers to dress in a way to be a Christ-like example to others.

With this in mind, the following are examples of unacceptable attire: headwear during worship services, shorts shorter than mid-thigh, shorts/pants with writing on the rear, sleeveless shirts/tank tops/spaghetti straps/crop tops, sleepwear outside the dorm rooms, swimwear in the Dining Hall, leggings/yoga pants, inappropriate artwork, etc. Skirts and dresses should be no shorter than just above the knee. For the Challenge Course dress code, click here.

What should I bring?

Bring an expectant heart, a listening ear, and a positive attitude. Also bring your Bible, pillow, linens/blankets, towels, casual clothes, tennis shoes, toiletries, swim wear, flip flops/swim shoes. Please label EVERYTHING, even your Bible!

What should I leave at home?

Please leave all cell phones and music-playing devices at home. These items often cause distractions during worship or are lost during camp. Fireworks, firearms, knives, paint ball guns, water guns, shaving cream, skates and skateboards, tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs, and non-prescription drugs are never permitted.

What about spending money?

The Snack Shack and the Camp Store will be open for campers! Pre-paid cards may be purchased for children’s camps. In addition, a love offering will be taken for various projects.

What should I do with my medications?

All medications (prescription and non-prescription) must be checked in with the camp nurse during registration. We stock common OTC medications, so there is no need to send these. Prescription medications must be in a pharmacy-labeled bottle that includes the child’s name and dosage. Please only send what is needed for camp, and remind your child to pick up the medication at first aid when camp ends!

How do I get in touch with my parents?

Camp is about getting away from the distractions of life and getting closer to God, so we request that you leave your cell phones at home. If you need to get in touch with your parents, a counselor will accompany you to use a camp phone during business hours.

How do I get in touch with my camper?

To contact your camper, call (337) 328-7531. A message will be taken and given out during assembly times for your camper to call you back. Campers will be located as quickly as possible for emergency calls.

VBS 2022

Get those creative juices flowing at Spark Studios where imagination is ignited and creativity is awakened. Whether kids are exploring their artistic side in the Bible Study Studio or Crafts Design Center, laying down a track at the Music Sound Stage, or bringing inventions to life at the Missions Workshop, they will learn, like King David, to use their talents to bring glory to God. They will discover that their creativity is a gift from the infinitely creative Creator who designed them for His glory.

God’s creativity didn’t stop in Genesis! The Master Artist is working to redeem, reclaim, and transform us—His creation—to the original design He planned for us. We are His workmanship (Eph. 2:10)—a masterpiece in process. So what are you waiting for? Spark your imagination and kick your creativity into high gear at Spark Studios.

Homecoming

It’s a Homecoming worth celebrating, it’s our quasquicentennial anniversary!  Join us on April 3, 2022 as we celebrate 125 years of ministry here in Jennings, Louisiana. 

This Homecoming will be a time of Celebrating our History!  First Baptist Jennings has survived two world wars, the Great Depression and both natural and economic disasters that caused countless other churches to close their doors in the last century. Our history is one of service and sacrifice, of love and obedience to God’s word. It’s a story of individuals who used their time and talents, often behind the scenes, to minister to the local community, our nation and our world.

The Homecoming will be a way of Challenging the Present! First Baptist Jennings stands strong today, her steeple  magnificently situated along North Cary Avenue.  Commanded by the great commission, and filled with a desire to serve, our church offers programs and events throughout the year - for every age, for everyone.

Our homecoming is a path to Creating a Future! It’s a momentous occasion for our church, and the community, and we want to invite you to join us.  All former and potential members are welcomed to attend this historic event where we will have several special guests in attendance. 

Together we will be Celebrating our History, Challenging the present and Creating a future!

Mark your calendars! We will worship together at 10:15, followed by lunch and a family-fun day in the Family Life Center. There will be fun-jumps, games and more!

Journey to the Cross

The joy of Palm Sunday, the disappointment of Judas’ betrayal, the devastation of the crucifixion…the Journey to the Cross is filled with sacrifice, reflection, gratitude, prayer, fasting and so much more!  

Be our guest April 11-14, 2022 in the Family Life Center as local pastors speak on topics relating to the journey of Jesus to the cross. 

We genuinely hope you’ll plan to participate as the Jennings community comes together Monday through Thursday, 11:50am-12:45pm, to honor the Savior who died and rose for us all. (Lunch will be served daily.) 

Whether you’re a lifelong believer, a new believer, or just looking to find more meaning to this holiday, join us to find it in Journey to the Cross.
