FUGE- Info about the 2015 Summer Student Camp

theme picture

FUGE (a Lifeway ministry) is a week long camp for Middle and High School students.  There are locations all over the US throughout the summer.  The week is filled with fun recreational activities, Bible study, and worship!  It is really a blast and a life changing week with other students in God’s word!

Details for the University Hills FUGE Summer Camp:

  • Dates: July 6-11, 2015
  • Location: North Greenville University (7801 North Tigerville Road, Tigerville, SC 29688)
  • We will leave on a bus from UHBC on Monday July 6 at 10:15am and return on Saturday July 11 at 1:00pm.
  • Cost: $280 Total ($50 deposit due in January 2015 to the UHBC Office or Cindy Behling)
  • The FUGE form (available after January 15) must be notarized and submitted with a copy of your insurance card (if available)
  • Students have the choice of either Mfuge or Centrifuge.  The only thing this changes is for Mfuge the student leaves for part of each day on a team to do a local mission project in the city (the student chooses their mission tract: working with children, construction, evangelism, etc).  Centrifuge students will be doing recreation and tract times (dozens of options) while Mfuge students leave campus with their team.  Please indicate MFUGE or Centrifuge when deposit is turned in.
  • Follow @UHBCFUGE on Twitter!
  • We are still in need of adult leaders to chaperone so if you are a parent and would like to go as an adult chaperone please email

Fellowship Hall Building Committee Report from 11/16/14

The Fellowship Hall Building Committee met with several architects about construction of the new building. After a lot of careful consideration, we decided on an architect, whose company designs and builds the complete structure. We chose Ecclesia Construction Co., out of Rock Hill. This company builds churches and has built many in our area. They are familiar with our situation and will be able to help us in many aspects; including settling with the insurance company.

David Young, Todd Waits, and Leah Misner met with Jeff Whittle, from Ecclesia, last week to answer questions that Jeff had about our church. Jeff will study this information and in the next few weeks, he will have a design meeting with our entire building committee, plus other individuals who would represent various areas of the new building, such as Bible Study, Media, Building and Grounds, Kitchen, etc. After this meeting, Jeff and his team will work on a general design to present to the building committee.

We continue to ask for your prayer for this committee as we move forward.
