Important Updates

Wednesday Youth Group // 7 PM

Worship Night this Wednesday in the CHAPEL at 7 PM
For worship nights ONLY, we will be in the Chapel starting tomorrow night. On regular Wednesday nights, we will continue to meet in the gym. Like last week, small group rooms are the same, except for 7th and 12th grade. Here is the room list:
7th- GYM
8th- Jr High Room
9th- Awana Room
10th- Sr High Room
11th- Refinery
12th- GYM

You must bring a lawn chair for small group time and we encourage you to wear a mask.

After we worship together in song, Pastor Nathan will continue “Faith in _____ World.” This week will be focused on having “Faith in a Materialistic World” where we will look at Matthew 6:19-24 and go through what Jesus has to say about Himself, this world, and earthly possessions. In the midst of a world focused on materialistic living, we will look at what Scripture says about the source of materialism (it’s a heart issue), the dangers of living this way, and how to deal with the allures of temporal living.

Here are some questions to consider with your family:
-Which “danger of materialism” resonated with you or stood out to you?
-How do we have a healthy view and outlook of our possessions? What biblical principles can we apply to not lean too far one way or the other?
-How does living in America influence your view on possessions?
-What about giving money to the church…what’s up with that? Is it just to pay Pastor Nathan Fox’s salary?

Event Updates

UPDATED Important Information Regarding Pursuit Camp // Dates: January 29- February 1

1. At this time, Pursuit Camp is still happening and we are planning on going. If this changes, we will communicate via text and email. WOL desires to keep your student safe at camp and is doing everything they can to adhere to guidelines and keep everyone safe, and we do as well. 

WOL is now requiring a three day temperature check leading up to Pursuit Camp. You will now be required to submit your student’s temperature on the following dates:

-Wednesday, January 27th by NOON
-Thursday, January 28th by NOON
-The third temperature check will be taken at registration when your student arrives at HBC


If your student’s temperature is 100.3 or above, they will not be allowed to attend Pursuit Camp. You will receive an email the morning of each day requesting you to submit these temperatures before NOON on that day. You MUST respond to that email with your student’s temperature or email Elizabeth Huggins (eghuggins@hbclynchburg.com) before noon, or your student will not be able to attend camp.



Leading up to camp, please monitor your student’s symptoms and temperature. If your student has experienced any of the following or has experienced any Covid-like symptoms leading up to camp, please DO NOT send your student and please let us know as soon as possible. 
-If your student has tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 14 days, a negative test (with paperwork) will be required for them to attend Pursuit Camp.
-If your student has been around someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 within a 6-foot distance and without wearing a mask, will be asked to not attend Pursuit Camp. Should they have a negative test for Covid since the event or a positive for antibodies, then the student will be allowed to attend Pursuit Camp.
Safety Precautions Upon Arrival and While Traveling
-When your student arrives at HBC we will take their temperature. If they have a 100.3 temperature or higher when we take their temperature, they will not be allowed to go to Pursuit Camp
-When we arrive at Pursuit Camp, your student will be required to get their temperature checked again. Any camper who temps 100.3 or higher will be asked to wait 20 minutes and then will get their temperature retaken. If their temperature is still 100.3, they will not be allowed to attend camp. 
-Hand sanitization will be given out during registration at HBC, WOL, and on the bus. 
-Face masks must be worn during HBC and WOL registration, while we are traveling on the bus, and when we make stops.
Safety Precautions While at Pursuit Camp
-Temperatures will be taken Friday night and Saturday night while at camp
-During meetings, hand sanitizer will be given out, seating will be by cabin and each cabin will be 6ft apart from other cabins, and meeting rooms will be disinfected after every meeting.
-During meals, hand sanitizer will be given out, meals will be served family-style, and the dining hall will be disinfected after every meal. 
-Games will be geared toward health and safety.

2. WOL Camp checks for head lice before anyone is allowed to enter the camp. If you have been exposed to lice within the past 30 days, please email eghuggins@hbclynchburg.com and make us aware of this. (We do not want your student to not be accepted into camp)

3. Bring snacks and spending money for food on the road and for extra purchases at camp. We will be stopping at four Love’s Truck stops, throughout the trip for restroom and snack breaks. Since these stops have various fast food restaurants within their store, we will eat at one for our lunch stop. However, there will not be a fast-food restaurant at the Love’s we stop for breakfast, so students can purchase food at Love’s when we stop or bring snacks for breakfast. Please plan on bringing spending money for meals and bring packaged snacks for the bus. Students will also have opportunities to buy snacks at the snack shack and items at the camp bookstore, so please remember to bring spending money for that, as well.

4. DO NOT forget to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and a small suitcase or duffel bag. You can find the packing list HERE. If you plan to go down the Penguin Slide, remember to bring a modest swimsuit and towel.

5. You must arrive at HBC on Friday, January 29th at 12 AM for registration. We will depart from HBC at 1 AM. We will arrive back at HBC on Monday, February 1st at 1 AM. Registration is in the Senior High Room. You  MUST bring any medication you use with you when you arrive at HBC for registration. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Elizabeth Huggins (eghuggins@hbclynchburg.com) We are excited to see how the Lord will work through Pursuit Camp this year!
Spring 2021 Calendar
Though our calendar is a bit leaner at this time, we want to encourage you to be involved where you can. Alongside our usual Wednesday and Sunday programming, take special note of Prayer Nights and Senior Nights. These are the community-building, life-binding kinds of activities that we pray will make your spring semester one of sincere growth in Christ. Save these dates, prepare to attend, and lets as a group strive to grow in Christ together!
Jr High and Sr High Prayer Night // January 23rd at 6-7:30 PM
Junior High and Senior High students and leaders are invited to join us for Prayer Night this coming Saturday night in the Senior High room at HBC! This time will be a sweet time of fellowship as we spend time in prayer together! Snacks will be provided!
