Youth Ministry Annual Events

 Centrifuge

Centrifuge or Fuge is a week-long summer camp put on by Lifeway Christian Resources, and we never miss a summer!  Hundreds of other teens from youth ministries from all over California and other western states participate, and the focus is on discipleship and worship in the midst of an incredibly fun week.  Mornings and evenings, there is a large group worship time, and the rest of the time is taken up by fun activities.  Students get to choose their activities, and there are many!  Frisbee golf, sewing, arts and crafts, drama, football, go cart riding, soccer, etc.  Just about everything.  Lots of group games, messy games, etc.  
 
Fuge will be led by their own staff, and then, our church sponsors and youth minister get to spend time experiencing camp with our students. Centrifuge provides an excellent opportunity for us to build relationships and have fun together!  Centrifuge is held in Jenness Park in Cold Springs, CA.  It's in the Sierras about 3 hours away. 
 
Mission Trip
 
Each summer, we take a trip designed to immerse us in the missional lifestyle that Jesus Christ modeled for us.  The mission trip offers a focused time on what it means to follow Jesus.  During the week, we hope to serve and live out the Bible in a way that will inspire us understand how we can be more like Christ in our daily lives.  
 
We often work with the Center for Student Missions (CSM).  CSM trips focus on inner city areas throughout the United States.  They offer quality programs, and our students always have the time of their lives with CSM.  Check out their website for more details.
