Escape is back!  This Sunday, October 22, 5:00!  We will begin a new series called Better than 1…
Growing up, we started friendships with a game of tag or hide-and-go-seek. But in high school, things get complicated. Cliques can feel like the real-life version of getting picked last for dodgeball—the cool kids pick each other, and the rest slump in the corner, forgotten. Even worse, social media rules the hallways. Our popularity depends on the amount of “likes” our latest picture earned, the number of retweets we get, and how many people viewed our Snapchat story. People crowd around us online and at school, but many of us still feel lonely. Depressed, even. Some of us feel so excluded that we don’t see the need for friends at all.

It’s time for a reality check: we need friends. Not just hang-out friends, but good friends who love, encourage, and challenge us.

In this 4-part series teaches students how God created us to need people and challenges students to choose godly friends. You’ll also watch real-life stories of other teens who struggle with the realities of friendship. This study will empower teens to build solid friendships, to show kindness to nonbelievers, and to be a good friend.
 
 
 
Escape 2017-2018!
Escape kicks-off
Sunday, August 20th
From 5:00-8:00
 
This year our theme is Family!  We want to a offer a place where students can escape everyday life and be loved and wanted by a group of people who share something deeper that what this world has to offer. We want every student to not just come on Sunday nights but to realize that they are needed every week.  Without them our family is not complete!
 
Romans 12:4-6 says
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.
 
If you are a student in grades 6-12 we want to welcome you into our family!  If you are a parent or know a student in grade 6-12 please encourage them to join us starting on Sunday, August 20th @ 5:00!
 
After the kick-off…
We meet each Sunday night from 5:00-7:30.  
 

Our mission at Escape is very simple…
1. Connect as many students as God sends our way to Christ
2. Connect students to each other
3. Connect students to community, both local and global through service, mission and love
Why Escape? What does it mean?
Escape (v.) to get free of : break away from or to avoid a threatening evil
Escape (n.) distraction or relief from routine or reality
 
 
One word speaks volumes for today’s generation. Escape is a seldom used word but I believe this increases its power and ability to be recognized. All people regardless of age are seeking an escape. Adults may be seeking refuge from their job, relationships, addictions, finances, even their own children in some cases. Teens need an escape, a place they can seek refuge, feel loved and accepted, a place to find hope, a place to help them find meaning to life. They need to escape school, relationships, peer pressure, all forms of secular media, some of their home lives, escape their reality. Unfortunately, this place is not school and for many, it cannot even be found at home. This place…is not truly a place. These things can only be found in Christ Jesus. That is what needs to be offered to them at Escape.
