Coming to Generations Camp at Port Sorell?
Here's what you'll need to bring:
- Sleeping bag OR sheet and doona
- Extra blanket because it gets chilly at night
- Warm (and appropriate) PJs
- A towel & toiletries - don't forget your toothbrush!
- A torch if you have one.
For GZ and BZ kids who are only staying one night, it would be helpful if kids were already showered or didn't need a shower on Friday night.
You will also need comfy clothes for games, shoes for running around in, old clothes in case we get messy, and a warm jacket.
Medication of any kind needs to be handed to a leader when you sign your child in. Please provide written instructions if your child needs medication at particular times.
Youth who are staying 2 nights, bring an extra set of clothes for church on Sunday morning. If you have a bible, bring it along.
Ignite Youth -Junior High (Grade 6-8) and Senior High (Grade 9-12)
Ignite Youth is for everyone in grades 6-8 or grades 9-12. Our program desires to create a welcoming and engaging environment that will challenge and excite our young people! Our passion is to see young people welcomed into a place where they can hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and witness, through our leaders, the benefits of living in a relationship with Him. Don't think this means we are only for Christians, all are welcome at Ignite Youth.
When, Where and How Much?
Ignite Youth meets at Devonport Church of Christ on Friday nights during school terms. The program normally runs from 6:30pm till 8:30pm and costs $3. Every second week the senior program (grade 9-12) meet for Crowded Lounge - details below. Check back here or like our Facebook page (@IgniteYouthDev) for updates if you aren't sure as to what is going on!
What about Crowded Lounge for the Grade 9-12's?
Crowded Lounge is something that happens fortnightly within the term for the grade 9-12's. These nights are a little bit more laid back and provide an opportunity to build relationships with the young people and discuss topics about life and faith. These nights are also held in the homes of members of Devonport Church of Christ, for more information about the location each time please contact Iain Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Where can I find out what is happening each week?
There is a program to download below (Coming soon!), details on our Facebook page or just check above for what is coming up this week!
Do I need to register?
Your young person can just rock up on Friday night. However all young people must be signed in and out by an adult. We also need an information consent form (links below!) This can be done on the night!
I have other questions!
If you have any questions at all about Ignite Youth then please contact Iain Anderson: email@example.com or 0429694343
Youth DNA Groups
At Devonport Church of Christ our small group programs are known as DNA groups.
DNA groups meet at various times through the week and are a vital part of church life. They are the primary place pastoral care happens, as they provide an environment of deeper fellowship. Application of Scripture to life in personal discipleship and encouragement to greater engagement in mission & ministry also happen best in DNA Group life.
Grade 7/8's have a DNA group that meet fortnightly on Sunday mornings during our 10 am service. This small group seeks to build and develop foundational skills in the young people particularly around how to engage with church and sermons, as well as aspects of owning their faith. Contact Iain 'Yowie'Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details about when the group meets.
Dates for Grade 7/8 DNA Group - Term 3 2019
