BATTLE: Becoming All That The Lord Expects
The purpose of this group is to teach 5th through 8th graders more about their faith, developing a relationship with God through prayer, learning acts of charity through apostolic work, and interacting with their peers in a safe environment. The four main pillars that we focus on are: Catechism, Prayer, Service and Social.
BATTLE meets on Monday from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. For more information on the BATTLE group, contact Youth Minister John Caballero at (480) 507-4441. Or, send him an email (Click his email button on the next page).
BATTLE Camp 2019
Note: BATTLE Camp is completely full and registration is closed. Thank you for your understanding.
Greetings in our Lord Jesus Christ! We are excited to announce our 2019 BATTLE CAMP for 5th - 8th graders. This week long event is filled with prayerful teachings, crafts & activities, games and loads of fun! I believe that our youth are to be challenged in the faith, but it is also important to show them the joy of being a follower of Christ! St. John Bosco's quote - "Run, jump, shout, but do not sin!" - is how best describes our youth ministry.
Some of our previous Battle Camp themes have been: The Early Church & the Martyrs, Salvation History: Escape from Babylon, and introducing this year's theme - St. Paul & the Art of Evangelization! This year we will focus on the person of St. Paul; how his temperament and character were not simply changed but redirected to preach the Gospel with a fiery zeal! Our goal is to help the youth understand that their unique person and characteristics, when redirected towards Christ, is a full surrender of the prized creation of how they were made to glorify God.
There will be a $15 registration fee to help us cover for a week long worth of snacks, supplies and t-shirts. I will be posting a link to register in the next few days. I will also be accepting applications for high school volunteers on this same link. Please be on the lookout for this post soon. If you would like to donate snacks or funds for Battle Camp, please reach out to me. God bless you! Please keep our Battle Camp event and our youth in your prayers!
