Student Fellowship Activities
Get Ready for Great Escape!
Join FPC Middle School Ministry on a summer adventure to the Great Escape! We will leave from the church on Sunday, June 11, and head to Lee University in Cleveland, TN. We’ll join middle school students from all over the country for a wild ‘n’ crazy week of incredible music, captivating speakers, engaging entertainment, and the messiest games you can imagine! Before we return to the church, around noon on Friday, June 16, we will also have spent a day whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River!
We will do our best to offset the cost and make camp available for the lowest price possible. Scholarships are available but must be requested. The price of $445 includes:
• Transportation to and from camp
• Camp programming
• 5 nights of lodging
• 13 meals
• Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River
• An amazing week!
This is an event you won’t want to miss! Start inviting your friends now!

Wednesday Evening Small Groups
Downstairs classrooms, 6:00 p.m.−7:00 p.m.
Except during school breaks or on special occasions, such as our intergenerational All Saints worship or Holy Week, Student Ministries Small Groups meet on Wednesday evenings. These same-age, same-gender groups meet once a week for fun, sharing, and a devotion. They are intended for relationship building and walking together through life’s ups and downs. These small groups meet at the church from 6:00 to 7:00, after the fellowship dinner. Join us!
Our mission team in Natal, Brazil, worked and played in the heightened communication zone between languages May 29 through June 6. Lacking a human interpreter, students and their counterparts got to know each other through improvised sign language, a bit of English, and Google Translator on their hosts’ iPhones. Our team sanded and repainted all the fences on the property of the Independent Presbyterian Church of Felipe Camarão and its preschool. They whitewashed walls, and adults helped fix electrical problems. Our kids introduced their kids to paddleboards at the beach, which made waves of fun for everyone. The final report from adults and students is that they “really felt community.” You will find other photos of their joyful, productive week here.
