The Refinery | 9.19.17

Written by

I will bring that group through the fire
    and make them pure.
I will refine them like silver
    and purify them like gold.

They will call on my name,
    and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘These are my people,’
    and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’”

Zechariah 13:9

WHAT is The Refinery? | High school juniors and seniors are invited to join ONE Ministries for a small group dedicated to preparing you for the immenent realities of life beyond college. Topics will range from maintaining faith in a secular, post-Christian climate, differing worldviews, time-management, finances and budgeting, and plenty more. This will be well worth the time spent -- it will help to not only build the faith and life skills necessary for the road ahead, but will foster a Christ-centered community for students to lean on throughout the process.

WHEN is The Refinery? | The Refinery goes from 8:00pm-10:00pm every third Tuesday of the month, starting on September 19th. We know it's late, but we also know you're busy with school and work and sports before then. Plus...it's only once a month!

WHERE is The Refinery? | We will be meeting at the Murphy's house in Longmont (1728 Trevor Court).

HOW MUCH does The Refinery cost? | There will be a $50 fee to sign up. I know, I know, but check it...that covers materials, food, AND an awesome celebratory retreat at the end of the school year! $50 doesn't sound so expensive anymore...does it?

HOW do I sign up for The Refinery? | All you gotta do is shoot Kyle an email ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to let him know you're in - that's it! Make checks out to BCEFC and hand those to Kyle once you've signed up.

THE REFINERY is a commitment. It's a commitment to yourself and your brothers and sisters who are in this with you. Once made, we ask that you take the commitment seriously. If we commit to go through the fire together, I promise we'll come out the other side like diamonds.

ONE Ministries Reading Sponsorship Program

Written by

This year, our students have the opportunity to raise funds for our summer mission trip in a brand new way!

The ONE Ministries Reading Sponsorship Program is an opportunity for the students of BCEFC to raise funds for their upcoming mission trip, as well as engage with thoughtful Christian literature. It is our hope that through this program, students discover new authors and subjects of interest, as well as establish meaningful relationships with members of our Chinese congregation.

STUDENTS, HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!

  1. Decide how many books you're going to commit to reading (maximum 5 books) and let Kyle know ASAP
  2. Pick a book off of THIS LIST, and start reading! You will recieve $10 towards your trip for each book you read
  3. Once your done with your book, fill out this GROWTH INVENTORY and turn it into Kyle at church
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 until you've read all the books you're committed to
  5. All GROWTH INVENTORIES must be turned in by JUNE 25TH to be applied to your trip

NOTE: The number of books you decide on now will be applied to your final trip cost (due May 14th). If you fail to reach your goal, you will simply owe that money back after the trip.

SPONSORS, HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!

  1. Sign up to be a sponsor at church this Sunday (4/30)
  2. If you did not specify a student to sponsor, you will be sent an email to introduce you to your student
  3. Each time your student turns in a GROWTH INVENTORY, you will be emailed a copy
  4. You will be notified when your student has completed all of their books, and at that point, you can bring cash or a check ($10 per book) to BCEFC - please make checks out to BCEFC

NOTE: The money will go a long way in helping your student raise funds for this trip, but please consider this as more than a monetary investment. You are investing in the spiritual growth of a student, through study and service. Read the inventories that your student has filled out. Spend time praying for their reading and their trip. If you commit to those things, much more will be gained - both by the student and by you, the sponsor.

RESOURCES

  • READING LIST - make sure to ask Kyle before you head to the library, he may have a copy of the book you're looking for!
  • GROWTH INVENTORY

WHAT: To celebrate the end of our first Refinery, as well as the impending graduation of three of our students, we will be heading into the mountains for a couple days of rest and connection. We'll be playing games, watching movies, eating food, hot-tubbing, hiking, and whatever else we're able to cram into these two days!

WHEN: Saturday, April 8th @ 7:30am - Sunday, April 9th @ 5:30pm

WHERE: Bear Canyon Lodge, South Fork, CO 81154

COST: FREE!!! (Just bring a few bucks for breakfast on Saturday)

BRING: Bible | Breakfast Money | Towel | Swimsuit | Snacks | Games | Movies | Hiking Appropriate Shoes and Clothes

This summer, ONE Ministries will be headed to the west coast - but we aren't looking to soak up the rays. With the beautiful weather, the sandy beaches, and an endless supply of things to do, San Diego is a hotspot for anyone looking to have a fun time. But with this warm climate comes one of the highest homeless and street populations in the country. The beautiful homes that line the beach don’t tell the whole story of those who struggle. Something about the daily “sunny and 72” forecast makes people forget to help those who are in the greatest need. That is why San Diego needs you!

Possible Projects Include:

  • Helping families whose children are in the hospital by doing housekeeping, preparing food, and serving lunch at a nonprofit program that blesses people in that situation.
  • Preparing meals, serving, and eating with children from low-income families, and preparing a craft or activity for them—all at a summer food service program that’s a partnership between state and federal agencies, and local churches and ministries.
  • Coordinating games and readings, sharing a meal, and being a friend to residents of a senior wellness center or an independent living facility.
  • Reading stories, playing games, doing crafts, and spending time with children through places like the Boys and Girls Club and local libraries.
  • Serving and spending time with people at the local rescue mission.

Basic Trip Info:

LOCATION: San Diego, CA (host church in nearby Lakeside, CA)

DATES: July 1st - July 9th, 2017

COST:  $400 - Final payments are due May 14th

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
