You have an amazing opportunity to support a very special event called Joy Prom to our community. Joy Prom is an annual community event. Joy Prom, is held at MTVchurch in Columbus, Mississippi.
Joy Prom started six years ago as an opportunity for special needs students in the Golden Triangle to experience a prom just for them. Joy Prom is a locally supported event. Local churches have provided the food, while nearby restaurants, businesses, and organizations provided funds, services, and donations.
If you or anyone you know who would consider supporting in this great opportunity to bring Joy to so many in Lowndes County please consider supporting and sharing!

Everything starts somewhere. The greatest movements and the biggest heroes all had a beginning. Before the success, before the fame, before the impact, there was a time when someone dared to be an original. They dared to do something that had never been done, make something that had never been made, go somewhere that no one had gone before.
Those stories are what BigStuf 2018 is about. Because whether we realize it or not, we are originals. And we have a story. And our story not only tells us who we are, but clues us into where we’re headed. This summer, discover what it means to live like an original. We can’t wait because here’s one thing we know: originals change the world.
At MFuge, you will jump into ministry with local communities and serve people in need. Our highly trained FUGE staffers will take care of the details, lead Bible study and facilitate the planning for each day.
At MFuge, Students are divided into groups for Bible study and ministry based on the type of work they request. Off-site ministry is facilitated within Bible study groups by a member of our trained FUGE camp staff, who also leads the Bible study. Ministry sites vary by location, but groups are trained and equipped for ministry through activities such as painting and yard work, facilitating activities with kids, or working in a homeless shelter. Adult leaders from your church accompany Bible study groups to the ministry site. Lunch is provided at ministry site.
During the day your students will be challenged and stretched as individuals; in the evenings, you’ll have an opportunity to build group unity over dinner, worship, fellowship and church group devotions.
MFuge is designed to give students a mission experience that opens their eyes to similar opportunities they may have to serve in their own communities, learning to live every day life on mission!
. A scholarship provides a teenager in financial need with an opportunity to experience a week at Mfuge and go home inspired to impact their friends, family and community for Jesus. Our goal for 2019 is to award scholarships to as many teenagers in financial need as possible.

We will be partnering with several local churches across the county for incredible worship, amazing teaching & serving our community.
ONE Weekend in the simplest form, is a weekend retreat for student ministries.
There are a few distinctions that make ONE Weekends different from a normal retreat. ONE Weekends are an amazing time where a large portion of our church has the chance to play an important role in our students’ lives.
Here are a few of the core components that make ONE Weekend such an awesome environment for our students to grow spiritually.
Whereas some retreat weekends are more about getting away and hanging out (which is NOT a bad thing), ONE Weekend puts a high premium on discipleship. There are Large Group sessions where a speaker can move the weekend’s theme along from a big-picture perspective. And there are super-intentional Small Group times where students go deeper with their individual small group leaders. It’s a focused time of spiritual growth and application.
“Host Homes” are a key feature of ONE Weekend. A host home is where a family in the church agrees to host a Small Group for the weekend.
Students will spend the Friday and Saturday night at their host homes. It’s an AMAZING way to get a greater portion of our church involved in our student ministry.
ONE Weekend will see the Large Group Sessions at Mt.Zion Baptist Church, while the Small Group Sessions will happen in host homes. It’s an awesome way to create a real tie-in to our church and our community.
One of the coolest parts in ONE Weekend is the prevalence of churches taking time to do some sort of mission project in our community.
On Saturday we will have sometime after lunch to have some fun. We will be bowling this year!
Chris Katulka is this year's speaker. Chris is with The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry. Chris will be sharing about how the Bible can be embarrassing.
Nobody likes to admit it when they’re wrong. The idea of hiding our flaws, wrong-doings, and embarrassments is a characteristic of human nature that’s been around for a very long time. And yet the Bible is full of stories and accounts that often put key biblical characters in awkward and embarrassing positions, made available for all to read.
Josh Maze is this year's Worship Pastor at Highpoint Church in Memphis, TN. Josh has lead worship all over the country for several events like super summer. For more info and to check out Josh's music visit his site joshmaze.com.
