Enchanted Rock Campout


Our annual Enchanted Rock Camp Out allows us to focus on following Christ. Maundy Thursday we will worship, share communion, and wash one another’s feet, just like Christ did with his Disciples the night before he was arrested. On Friday, we will carry three crosses up Enchanted Rock to symbolize Christ carrying His cross in His passion. Fasting while on the campout will be an option.

A few reminders:

1.      We are on this campout to remember the night before Jesus died (Maundy-Thursday) and the death of Jesus (Good Friday).
2.    This is a camping trip. We will be sleeping in a tent on the ground.
3.      We will be climbing Enchanted Rock as a team, carrying large crosses. We will stop several times for Good Friday devotions. It will probably be hard.
4.      We will still go if it is raining.
5.      Do be respectful of the Leaders and other students.
6.      Do drink water.
7.      Do keep the tents separate by gender.

For anyone signed up to bring a tents, please bring them to the church no later than Sunday March 20.

All participants in the campout must arrive by 5:00pm on Thursday March 24. Before we leave, everyone must have a med form on file with the Student Ministry office. These can be emailed to sarah@theu.org. If anyone has prescription medication they need to take on the trip, they need to bring only the amount they need in the original labeled bottle to check in, and give to our first-aid coordinator for the trip, Taylor Mooney, along with a filled-out medication administration form. We will be returning from Enchanted Rock on Friday the 25th in time for the Good Friday service that begins at 6:30pm. Everyone on the trip will sit together during this service, but parents are more than welcome to come to the service. All students need to be picked up by 7:30pm, immediately following the Good Friday service.

Please pray for our campout. Pray that we are safe, that students are encouraged to follow Jesus, and that we are a light for Christ at Enchanted Rock.
