Hey everybody! Here’s the latest news! Take notes!
1) Our Weekend Away was a tremendous success! We had over 25 students together in the boonies and had a blast! Some amazing people shared their testimonies and it was incredible! Don’t feel bad if you couldn’t come because you can bet we’ll be going back!
2) Keep a lookout for the Campus Blitz coming up at the end of the month. We’re going to see some seriously awesome stuff go down! Stay tuned for more details.
3) Not sure what to do with your recyclable bottles and cans? Help us out and bring them to BASIC! The SA club with the most returns wins a seriously awesome prize and we get to keep the refunds on top of it!
4) Easily the most anticipated event of each semester is less than 2 months away! The BASIC Conference is coming up! We’re so excited to go! Plus, Kim Walker-Smith from Jesus Culture will be leading worship which is absolutely incredible! Next week we’ll start collecting money and registration forms. Get more details at the official website here!
OK, champs, hope you wrote that all down. We have a lot going on and we couldn’t be more excited! Try to keep up!
(How many exclamation points are in this post? Sheesh…)
In less than 48 hours, BASIC Buffalo will be in ski country! Our semi-annual tradition of spending a couple of days in Gerry, NY at Chautauqua Hills Camp to hang out, eat food, worship, and learn far away from the distractions of school, work, etc. is happening this weekend!
The theme for this Weekend Away is titled, “I Was, I Am”. We’ll be hearing from some of our very own sharing about experiences in their lives where they saw God radically change them into who they are today. It’s going to be awesome!
If you’re going, you should of received an email from our fearless leader, Tom, on the details, including what to bring and who you’re riding with. If you did not get said email, shoot him an email and he’ll get that to you ASAP. The three most important things to remember: Bring $15, bring warm clothes, and bring your Bible.
If you’re not going, please do us a favor. Pray! We’re expecting God to do great things and for us to all come back changed. Pray that we experience everything that God wants us to experience while we’re down there. And be patient with us when we come back. We’ll all have a combination of fatigue and a spiritual high, and we’ll most likely be unbearable to be around!
See you when we get back!
