Broken Shackles (Youth Event)
Time: 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Location: Ward Nail Park, Lowell, AR
At Broken Shackles, our hope is that teens will be re-emboldened to "fight the good fight of faith" in a crazy and meaningful way (1 Timothy 6:12). In order to accomplish this goal, we will spend the evening in worship (lead by the worship teams of three different churches), study (lead by teens and adults from local churches), and fellowship (if Jesus fed 5,000 people, I think we can give it a try). Every minute will be spent either building up our youth in their passion for God or praising Him with all the passion that is in us. The fun part: we need help! To pull off this event, we need any help you can give either through monetary funding or volunteers. To support this night of youthful worship in either of these ways, please contact Lucas Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. OR visit our website at scholarministries.org. Thank you for your support and we hope to see you there!
