This year's theme for the lock-in is T.O.P. or "Teams On Purpose" and we are taking a look at the book of Acts. The Gateway student band will lead us in an awesome time of praise & worship followed by a message from our speaker: Ben Strode. Ben is the senior pastor at Christian Church of Olney Illinois, and has experience in speaking to teens. We are really pumped he is coming to share! We want every student that comes to the lock-in this year to walk away with two things: 1. There is a team where everyone belongs, God's team. 2. God's team is always on the recruitment trail.
During the lock-in students will receive 3 meals, get to play 3 hours of knockerball, participate in a nerf war, and even enter into an art competition. We will have other various games and activities throughout as well.
