Glorify God. Make Disciples.

Fuge Camp Update

Parents and Students,

Early this month, I sent a Parent Newsletter to parents explaining that we were potentially going to go to Fuge, in South Carolina, the last week of July – but that we would need to wait and see what happens before we will know for sure. Well, now we know.

Yesterday, Fuge Camps regrettably announced that they were cancelling all camps for 2020. You can see the 2 minute announcement here. Many of you may have been expecting this to occur, but still, it comes as sad news that we will for sure not participate in Fuge Camp this summer. This is most especially sad news for all of the seniors. ☹

Even in the midst of disappointment, we find comfort knowing that Jesus is good, His plans prevail, and we will seek to follow in faithful obedience, no matter what. We will choose to find our joy, not in events or activities (or lack thereof), but in the gospel of Jesus Christ! We do not live for what is temporary, but for what is eternal.

You Parents are probably already asking some questions in your mind so I will try to answer those here. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to reach out.

When will we go to Fuge in 2021?

The plan is to go to Fuge Camp at Ridgecrest from June 14-18, 2021.

What happens to the money I have already paid toward Fuge for 2020?

There are two options for what happens to the money you have already given for Fuge 2020.

  1. If you expect to go to Fuge in 2021, the recommendation is to bump the funds toward Fuge for next year. To do this, please text or email Pastor John.
  2. You can ask for your money back. You may do this by emailing (email address below) Pastor John and providing your mailing address.

I am already looking forward to next year!!

Much love in Christ Jesus,

Rev. John Puig

COVID19 Student Ministry Update

During the COVID19 shutdown, we want to continue to come alongside of parents to minister to students. The Student Ministry Leadership Team will continue to be in touch with students via texts, calls, etc. to check in with students and pray for them. Additionally, we want you to know about the following ways in which MBC will be ministering to your students in an online capacity during the month of May.

  1. Youth Group Online will take place each Wednesday from 7-8pm through Zoom. Students can enter the room 10-15 minutes early to just talk/chat with each other until we start at 7:00. The meeting ID will always be 576-925-5305.
  2. Every Monday at 12:15pm we will have Lunch Room Zoom together over zoom for a maximum of 30 minutes. There is no agenda here, just a little time for students and leaders to connect over zoom while having lunch at home. 🙂 Again, the meeting ID will be 576-925-5305.

MBC Student Ministry

Midway Baptist Church is passionate about partnering with parents to disciple students to follow Jesus and to live out their faith every day while also intentionally making disciples of others within their sphere of influence. We do this in two ways – we strive to create opportunities for students to be a part of the larger body of Midway and to connect them with their own peer group in age-relevant environments. This means that on Sunday mornings, our students meet for Sunday school classes at 10:00am and then worship together with their families and the larger body of Christ in the 11:00am worship service. We also create a fun bi-weekly environment just for middle and high school students on Sunday and Wednesday evenings for worship, teaching, small groups, and community outreach. This is an incredible way to get connected to our student ministry! We also have events throughout the year that are designed just for students.

If you have questions or want to learn more about an event or youth group, contact Pastor John at [email protected].

The regular schedule for youth group – outside of the COVID19 shutdown is as follows:

Sundays

Middle School – 5:00-6:15 PM

High School – 6:15-7:30 PM

Wednesdays

Middle and High School – 7:00-8:30pm
