Weekly Youth Update: 8/10-8/16

This week, the Homeland Park Youth will be having our meeting time Wednesday Night from 6:30-7:30! We’ll be closing out of summer with one final game night, Wednesday Night! We’ve had a great summer of fellowship with other churches, great Bible studies, and fun in deepening our relationships with one another through things like Six Flags and Cola Wars!  See you Wednesday night in the Loft!

On August 23, Homeland Park Baptist Church will be hosting our annual Fall Out of Summer Spectacular! This community block party has been a big success the past two years as many of the youth in our church became involved as a result of this event. We’ll need your help getting the final plans in place. This Sunday, August 16, we will have an “All-In” meeting to prepare our hearts and minds for action. Next Saturday, August 22, we will go through Homeland Park passing out flyers and meeting residents to let them of the event and our church. We look forward to seeing you there!

With the fall schedule coming closer and closer to being done, we are excited to announce again the Clemson football trip the youth will take on Saturday, September 5! Come join us as we watch Clemson take on Wofford to open the season in Death Valley! Tickets are limited, first come-first serve, and are $10 each. In order to reserve a ticket, please pick up a trip packet from me and return the medical release and permission forms by Wednesday, August 26. We will have a brief parent-student meeting at 5:30 pm, Wednesday, September 2, for those attending.

Again, we are excited about what God did this past summer and we look forward to the fall together, worshipping Him! If you have any questions, please email me at

This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
