We are very excited to welcome your new 6th grader into the Student Ministry here at Lakewood United Methodist Church. Our vision is that Lakewood UMC students become fully formed disciples of Christ. We do this through reaching students, connecting them with Jesus, helping them grow in Christ, and sending them as disciple-makers. This is done through weekly gatherings as well as mission trips, retreats, and more. We understand that we are just as new to them as they are to us, and that becoming a part of the Student Ministry can be a little intimidating. This is why we have a special event at the end of the summer just for our new 6th graders. We call this The 6th Grade Adventure. It is a time to fellowship, to build community, worship together, and to introduce them to what it is like to be in the Student Ministry. Our summer interns Randi Lanum and Andres Flores are planning this event for this August. Though this is traditionally an event where we sleep overnight at the church, due to Covid-19 concerns, students will be going home on Thursday evening. Below you will find details about the trip:
- August 6-7, 2020. Students will meet at Lakewood UMC at 8:30am both days of the Adventure. We’ll return to the church for dinner and go home at 7pm on Thursday night. Friday night will not include dinner and students will leave at 6pm.
- Thursday morning will include activities and lunch at Lakewood UMC, followed by put-put mini golf. We’ll return to the church for dinner before students go home for the night
- Friday students will meet at the church at 8:30am. We’ll go to Big Rivers Water Park in New Caney before returning to the church for a special surprise before going home at 6pm.
- Cost is $50.00 per student. Money is never a reason not to participate. Scholarships are available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
- We are asking that students pack a lunch for Thursday afternoon, every other meal will be provided for them. However, we ask that there be NO PEANUTS OR PEANUT PRODUCTS in the sack lunches because of allergies for a few of our students.
