2 Events to mark on your calendars

Hey There,

We’re getting ready ready for a busy summer with different things going on, but I’ll give the information to you in parts.

First up are two major events that will be coming up this summer. One JUST FOR GIRLS! And one for MIDDLE SCHOOLERS!


Thrive is an event that’s being hosted by Beach Church, next to the old Hard Rock Amusement Park. The event is July 21st and goes from 3-9pm. At least 3 of our Youth Ministry Team women will be there with our girls all day.

There will be a lot of fun going on all day, including Zumba, Makeovers, Games, etc.

More importantly though, there will be a speaker later in the event. Here name is Jenna Lucado. She is the daughter of Max Lucado, a very well known pastor/author. Our youth already know her from a video series we did in the beginning of this year.

Encourage your daughter(s) to go. It will cost only $10 for them through our youth group, as we are offsetting some of the cost. Girls will leave from our church that Saturday @ 2pm

We need confirmation in the next couple of weeks to figure out what transportation we’ll need. Contact us with questions either on the comment section of this page or by email to surfsideyouth@gmail.com


As most of you know, every year our High School students (ages 14-up) have the opportunity to go to Salkehatchie every year. This is an amazing service opportunity where they also get to know each other better. It’s also somewhat of a “rite of passage” into Senior High ministry.

Now we are offering an opportunity for Middle Schoolers too!

Immerse is a Retreat organized by the South Carolina UMC Conference, but hosted at Lake Junaluska, in North Carolina. Our kids are familiar with the area from our last winter trip.

This event is for Middle Schoolers only. Cost is $180/person, which covers lodging and food. Youth Ministries will pay for transportation and the event.

Sign-up needs to be made by June 30th, in addition of at least $100. The remaining amount can be payed by July 20th. Registration forms can be downloaded be clicking HERE.

If you have any questions, contact us in the comment section of this post, or emails us at surfsideyouth@gmail.com

We hope you and your family will join us for these and other opportunities this summer!

  1. We will be traveling to MA during the Immerse retreat, so Johan and Janneke will miss it. I have heard of Thrive before and if some of her friends go, Janneke will probably love to go. Do you need moms to go, too, or not?
