Houseboats 2018 Registration

WHEN:  June 23rd-28th, 2018

THEME: “LIGHTHOUSE" (John 1; Matthew 5:13-16)

FOCUS SCRIPTURE John 1:1-14; Matthew 5:13-16

DESCRIPTION:  Lighthouses provide a beacon of light to ships at sea, guiding them back home and safely to shore. Lighthouses ultimately serve as a beacon of hope in the midst of uncertainty, storms, and darkness. Jesus is the light(house) of the world, a beacon of hope, and the only one who can bring us back “home” to himself! As followers of Jesus, we now have an opportunity to shine this light by reflecting Jesus’ goodness, beauty, and truth to others with the hope of pointing them back to source of this light, Jesus himself! 

Come open to ask honest questions, seek understanding and discover who God is and what it means to follow Him!

 BUY ONE GIVE ONE PROGRAM: Do you want to bring a non-Christian friend who does not belong to a church?

Through the Buy One Give One program, every single student who registers for this trip has one free ticket to Houseboats for a non-Christian friend who does not attend church. To apply to bring a friend, each student must first submit a prayer card for this person (give to Haley or Trevor), then fill out an application. If the application is accepted,  the friend will get all the details necessary to register. We are so excited for who God has planned to attend this trip. Be praying for any friends you may want to invite!

For more info on this, check out the Buy One Give One Process on the website!
