  • NEW LIFE // 6:00 pm we will arrive at the school we will be staying at. Here we will be eating pizza, playing games, sharing a message, worship, and some late night bingo.

  • IF YOUR STUDENT HAS ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME. // We understand that this is an exciting trip and something students look forward to, but we ask that you use your best judgment when it comes to sending your student on Ski and Shop. Your discretion is key in the success of this trip!

    • This year we are encouraging students to unplug from their phones and really focus on the experience at hand. We see this trip as a chance to disconnect from their phones and enjoy the people around them by leaving their phones at home. It’s a great chance to escape the pressures of social media and we expect God to do BIG things. CHAOS Staff are always available if students/parents need to be contacted. Highly encouraged -- not required. :)

We finished up the last week of our series called "Awkward". We talked about the different types of relationships we will have. Brenna Lantz talked about the lies of dating, and Dave Bartlett talked about the lies of sex. We brought what Jesus said about it, and truth into the lies we may hear either through friends, tv, social media, or other sources. We linked the talks below so you can be included in what was shared at CHAOS. 

AWKWARD - Lies About Dating - Brenna Lantz

AWKWARD - Lies About Sex - Dave Bartlett


We love to hear from you! Feel free to directly respond to this blog if you have questions or encouraging stories to share!
