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 boriley@universityhills.org

“Jesus Is My Life” Student Series Starts This Wednesday!

Describe your life in a sentence.  What is your life all about?  What motivates you?  What helps you?  What are you building your life on?  What are your dreams and passions?  What did you wake up thinking about this morning?  There is only one person big enough and worthy enough to be your everything.  Can you say this: “Jesus is my life“?  

I want to invite all middle and high school students to join me as we study Romans 12 together on Wednesday nights at 6:15.  The aim of this study is to answer the question: “What does it look like when Jesus is our everything?”

Every Sunday at 9:15am the students and their leaders gather in the Student Center and study the Bible in small groups.  This is a great way for students to get plugged into the student ministry and the Bible.  We are using the Gospel Project as the curriculum for these small groups.  More info about the Gospel Project can be found at gospelproject.com.

Get Pumped: Squat Time!

The first spiritual discipline we covered in Ignite was the personal Bible study and prayer time commonly referred to as a “quiet time”.  For a number of reasons I have recently chosen to call this time “Squat Time”.  So as you prepare to do some squats to grow in godliness here’s some things to keep in mind:

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for… training in righteousness.”  The Bible, which is more accessible now than ever, can start to feel quite common place.  However, this book is anything but common.  It is the very words of God which are useful in growing us in Christ-likeness!  Approach your squat time with anticipation and awe!

What should you do during your squat time?  Here’s a sample squat time that I have found very beneficial:

  • Pray: ask the Lord to speak to you and use His word in your life
  • Write: make a list of who/what you’d like to pray for (but don’t pray through the list yet)
  • Read: work your way through the passage for the day (Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan is a helpful tool… there’s an app too)
  • Circle Key Words: highlight connecting words like “therefore”, thoughts about God, various commands and promises, etc…
  • Write: slow down and write out a verse(s) that stand(s) out in your reading, think through what this means in context and how it applies
  • Pray: go back to your list and pray for the people/things with the application of the passage in mind

I’m trusting the Lord to use His word in our lives to make us like Christ!  Get started, don’t give up, keep your eyes on the goal, and have your hope securely anchored in Jesus alone as your Savior and the One who gives you power to have a squat time and grow in godliness through it!

“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.  For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”  2 Corinthians 3:18
