Powerplus Youth Camp 2019
This summer the ROBC Youth Group will be attending Pineywoods Baptist Camp in Woodlake, TX for youth camp! Youth camp begins when we arrive on Monday and ends when we leave on Friday. A week at camp is a time for our youth to unplug and get rerouted to Christ. This camp provides an opportunity for students who have finished 7th-12th grade to gather with other students from across the state and engage in worship, spiritual formation, and fun!
The cost is $300 per student and a $50 deposit is required to reserve your place. But please do not let the cost of camp bar you or your student from coming. We do have scholarships available and they are given on an as needed basis.
I am also in need of a few adult volunteers who are willing to give a week of their summer to help students from ROBC as well as other churches to grow in Christ. If you are interested in going or know students who are interested in going please email me.
The Gathering - New on Wednesday Nights
The ROBC Youth group, now known as “The Gathering” meets, or gathers together regularly at least two times a week. On Sunday mornings we walk through different books of the bible together in a group bible study. On Wednesdays, we gather together and have a good time. We play some games, eat some food, and learn how to grow in our faith and apply it to our daily lives!
Our goal here at The Gathering is to spread God’s love to all people, at all times! We like to have fun in everything we do, but never lose sight of the Gospel and what it means to our lives! I hope you come visit and check out why we are gathering together!
“And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.”
Sunday Mornings – 11:15-12:00
Wednesday Nights – 6:30-8:00 (During the school year)
Powerplus Youth Camp, July 15-19. Registration has started!
Schlitterbahn New Braunfels day trip, August 5.
Holy Presents Mission Trip
What a trip! After a long and wet drive down to The Valley we were able to go out and share the gospel and deliver presents to the children of the Colonias. I just want to say thank you to our church for being generous and bringing shoeboxes filled with love and presents. We partnered with First Baptist Church of Texas City and together delivered over 350 gifts to the children in the surrounding areas of Harlingen. I think the students that went on the trip learned a few things. First, we must always be thankful for everything God has given us and be sure to find ways to give to others. And second, ministry is not always glamorous. The weather conditions were less than ideal, and some shoes may have gotten muddy, but God moved in our students and in the children that we were serving. Thank you again church! I hope this is something that our church can be a part of on an annual basis, both in serving through giving and serving through going!
