SPLASH is the leadership group for high school students and is available for everyone who will be a 10th, 11th, or 12th grader in the 2012-2013 school year. If you haven’t heard about it, we wanted to give you a peak into our plans for the coming year.

First of all, SPLASH stands for Students Providing Leadership And Serving Humbly and applications for next year are due!

If you would be a first timer on SPLASH the applications are here.

If you would be returning to SPLASH the applications are here.

Second, SPLASH is a place to utilize what you are good at. On SPLASH we spend time planning special events over the course of the year; it is a great opportunity to use talents and skills you have and put them to use. In fact, this coming year we will have special teams who will work on exciting projects throughout the year. Some of those will be games at youth group, others will be audio/visual (videos) for youth group and special events, and others will coordinate hospitality teams and activities.

Third, SPLASH is a place for spiritual growth. During this next year, SPLASH members will have a Bible Study so we can learn how God continues to speak to us today, specifically through Scripture. It is a great opportunity to sit with Zach or Brie and talk through God’s Word – even if that involves tough questions.

Fourth, SPLASH is a group that takes the youth community at LOPC seriously and has a hand in shaping it. Members of SPLASH are the examples at youth group, and much like the larger church, that doesn’t mean you have life, or faith, figured out. But it does mean you continue to be in conversation, and sometimes struggle in that conversation, with what God has in store for us or with how God is at work in your life.

If you will be in 10th-12th grade at the end of summer, this is a great way to be involved in leadership, develop community, grow both personally and spiritually, and contribute to the way we shape the LOPC community as well as the larger community around us!
