In August, "Grad Weekend" is a special camp for new high school graduates.
At Egan on Aug. 2-4, campers will discuss life after high school, hear relevant speakers, and connect with new friends as they embark on this new life chapter.
The program begins with check-in at 7:30 p.m. Friday and concludes at noon Sunday.
The United Methodist Motorcycle Association will share their stories with the group on Saturday. A panel discussion on Sunday will discuss healthy relationships and dating.
Preacher will be James Hunt, associate pastor at Broken Arrow-First UMC. Worship music will be led by Kyle Beard of Muskogee. He just completed his freshman year at Oklahoma City University.
Breakout sessions and leaders:
- "Living the Red Letters of Christ in a Gray World," by Nick Lee, youth director at Bixby-First. Focus on living as a follower of Christ in a world that doesn’t understand. As we continue on our journey after high school, we must know what Christ said and we must learn to follow no matter what!
- "Know Your Money," by Elizabeth Horton-Ware, campus minister at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. What are the most common mistakes young adults make concerning finances? Learn how to talk with your parents about money, understand credit cards and loans, and more.
- "Finding Your Faith Instead of Losing It," by Rev. Hunt. Life after high school brings new experiences and new questions that can strengthen and deepen your faith, if you come at them from the right direction.
