What is prayer? How does it work? When should you do it? What words should you use? These are all questions that junior high students are asking. They have a hope that this mysterious God has power to affect their lives, but they aren’t sure how to talk to Him. Believe’s CONTACT tour will help young people all over the U.S. better understand the amazing gift of prayer and how it can make an impact on their lives.
Students will meet at Outlook on Friday night, then head to Anderson, IN for the evening. Students will return to Outlook to spend the night, then after breakfast on Saturday, they'll take off for Anderson again for the rest of the day before being picked up at Outlook that evening.

Oscar Night is an event where students make and edit their own movies (can be individual or with a group) which are then viewed on Oscar Night and given an award in a particular category. The evening starts with Red Carpet interviews for all those who submitted a movie. There are non-alcoholic beverages and candy for purchase and a full dinner served. This is definitely a dress-your-best event and we have so much fun!
Categories this year include:
Best Use of a Prop (must be a plunger)
Best Cameo by a sponsor or Outlook Minister
Best Use of Your Pet (no harming of pets allowed!)
Best Visual Effects
Best Actress in a Supporting Role
Best Actor in a Supporting Role
Movies must be less than 10-minutes. All movies should be saved to a flash drive and given to Mitch no later than April 19!
We are always looking for volunteers for this event. If you'd like to be a host/hostess, a server, part of the candy and drink station, set-up crew, clean-up crew, or would like more info about a particular role, email Janna.
This week-long high school event is all about developing Kingdom workers. Impactful preaching, worship, and small-group time will convict, challenge, energize, and move students to think beyond themselves. This time of intentional connection with other students and sponsors is a key component in helping students feel deep and purposeful connection in OSM and many students consider this event a defining moment in their spiritual walk.
Based on CIY's website, this year's theme is all about the Trinity, but more specifically, exploring the Third Person of the Trinity-- who He is, how He works, and the many ways high school students can lean in and stay connected to him every moment of their lives.
Cost: TBD based on airline costs
Perhaps the most powerful evangelistic opportunity our church provides, this two-week trip to Latvia is a partnership with Outlook missionaries, David and Katka Roney. Student driven relational ministry time with Latvian students equips and inspires our students to share their faith in Jesus in their schools back at home and offers an encouraging realization that many of their personal struggles are not unique to our western culture. This trip is for mature high school students who demonstrate a growing walk with the Lord. Previous mission trip experience is preferred.
While the team is currently being set, it's not too late. so if you have an interested student, contact Mitch
Informational Parent Meeting on March 1 at noon.
This week-long trip to Stanton, Kentucky will see junior high and high school students and adults work together to repair homes by painting, roofing, and mixing cement. Full work days with evening debrief and worship time will stretch students' capacities to serve others outside their immediate communities and grow in their relationships with Christ and each other. REACH Missions Trips
is a preferred step to take before an international trip. It is also a perfect trip for parents to attend and assist!
Students who are interested should sign up in the Student Loft. An informational parent meeting for those attending (and those who are on the fence) Is on March 1 @ noon. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask Mitch
Various locations (see below)
On the first Tuesday of every month, high schoolers are invited to various sponsors' homes to play games, eat snacks, and have fun with their friends. Students are encouraged to bring a favorite game to play, a snack to share, and most importantly, their friends!
