December 13 cannot come soon enough! After almost an entire semester of deadlines, crunch time, practice, procrastinating, making the grade, making the team, drama, more drama, finding a date, Facebook, dance, video games, homework… you get the idea… after all of that for 4 long months, comes a time to CHILL.
The Big Chill is a high school retreat at Frontier Camp in Grapeland, Tx. We take a couple of busses full of students away to unplug, de-stress, and refocus on Jesus.
Mark your calendar For December 13-15. The Cost is $175 and scholarships are available if that price tag keeps you from being able to go. We don’t want anyone to miss out on this weekend full of Jesus, flag football, worship, ultimate frisbee, Bible, midnight smores, teaching, hayrides, quiet time, and all other things that are ‘life-giving.’
Well, the plan is simple: chill. Most of our time is free time to hang out with friends, make new friends and make memories. There are several pockets of time that are set aside for worship and teaching from the Bible; we think those two things are so important when it comes to creating a ‘restful’ atmosphere. Another element that is important to ‘rest’ is the element of service: we’ll have time and space carved out for students to serve somebody else. We know there will definitely be some impromptu ultimate frisbee, some pick-up flag football, etc.
We’re spending the weekend at Frontier Camp in Grapeland, TX outside of Crockett. Frontier camp provides activities like a zip line, ropes course, tomahawk throwing, target shooting and horseback riding. Its pretty cool to see a hundred or so ‘suburb-kids’ getting their ‘camp on’ with tomahawks.
We meet to leave the church on Friday, Dec 13 at 5pm with a 6pm departure. We’ll be back to the church on Sunday, Dec 15 at 3pm.
Short answer: its an incredible atmosphere to (re)connect with Jesus.
Long answer: it will be a great weekend to build relationships with leaders and students and a great weekend to build your relationship with the Father. When you unplug from the world for 36 hours or so, it becomes incredibly clear that God has been trying to get your attention for quite some time. Come on The Big Chill, get away, and spend a great weekend with friends and with Jesus.

Jr high is going through a devotion book this year at Rebelbase! Imagine empowering your students to spend just a few minutes each day discovering a life-shaping, thought-provoking, Jesus-centered truth that can transform them into the kind of people God crafted them to be. Sounds like a worthwhile investment, doesn't it? The Simple Truth Bible features 366 daily devotionals—each one a tasty, bite-size morsel that powerfully reveals what it means to deeply love and trust God, to lead a Jesus-centered life, and to lean on Scripture for guidance and wisdom. Books will be available at the Ugly Mug for pickup.
Rebelbase JH has swag for sale! Purchase online and pick up at the Ugly Mug.
