Vertical Weekend

Registration for Vertical Weekend begins Sunday, Jan. 24. Vertical Weekend is BASM’s annual in-town retreat for middle school students. This year's theme is Live Loud, which will focus on living out our worship of God in our every day lives.

Students will gather at BACC for four sessions from Friday night to Sunday morning. Each session will feature worship, teaching, games, and more. Students will arrive Friday evening at 7 pm. After Friday night's session, students will depart in their gender/grade specific groups to their host home with an adult leader(s.) Breakfast Saturday morning will be provided by the host family. Students will be brought back to church on Saturday morning by their adult leaders. Students will participate in two sessions on Saturday, fun activities including laser tag and a huge moon bounce, and exciting games such as life-size Hungry Hungry Hippos. Lunch and dinner will be provided Saturday at church. Students will be picked up Saturday at 7 pm by parents to go home. Students will return Sunday to Fusion for the final session. Cost of the event is $50. If you have any questions, please contact Lydia Macbride, Middle School Coordinator, for more information.

Host Home Families Needed:

BASM is looking for host homes for Vertical Weekend. Students would spend the night at host homes Friday, Feb. 26. Students with adult leaders would arrive to host homes between 9:30pm and 10pm on Friday night. Host families are asked to provide a light snack Friday night and breakfast Saturday morning. On Saturday, students, with adult leaders, would depart from host homes around 9:30 am. A group of students staying at a host home will be around 6 kids with 1-2 adult leaders.  Students will bring sleeping bags/blankets/pillows.  If you are interested in partnering with BASM for this wonderful weekend of discipling our students, please contact
