Oasis High School 2019

ANNOUNCEMENT: Oasis has been rescheduled to March 29-30! If you haven't signed up yet, you still can!

Oasis High School | March 29-30 | Manhattan, KS

Oasis is a weekend conference for high school students held here in Manhattan on the campuses of K-State & MCC. It will be real and relevant, fun and engaging, while raising up students to make big impact for Jesus in today's culture. 

The theme is MORE, as we look to open the eyes of high schoolers to see what God is doing in the world and how He wants to use them now to do His will and bring his Kingdom here. As high school students search for their purpose, God wants them to know that they are made for more than what most people settle for today. There is no greater purpose a student has in this life than to know Jesus and make Him known.

Worship will be led by the Jordan Howerton Band. Jordan and the guys have led thousands of students and adults closer to Jesus through engaging and high-energy worship music. They not only bring excellence, but teach students what a heart seeking Jesus looks like as they lead.

Our speaker will be Carlos Whittaker, who is a People's Choice Award winner, a former recording artist signed to a major label, a social media maven, and currently spends the majority of his time writing books and speaking on stages around the world. He was even invited to speak at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast before the President of the United States.

Cost:
  • $40 + money for 1 meal 
  • Early Deadline = Feb 3 
  • After Feb 3, there will be a $10 late fee 
  • Click here to pay online
Forms Needed:

For more information, go to oasiscon.com.

If you are concerned about missing basketball, band, or other responsibilities Friday night, we can still figure out a way for you to participate in this weekend!

All high school students are welcome! Invite a friend!

Mexico Mission Trip 2019

Puerto Peñasco, Mexico - March 10-16, 2019

We are excited to announce that for our 2019 mission trip we will be traveling to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico to partner with 1MISSION to build a house for a family in poverty.

1MISSION is a ministry and community development organization giving people in poverty the opportunity to earn a house by serving their community. They strive to train, equip, and empower local residents, leaders, pastors, and organizations to lift each other out of physical, spiritual and emotional poverty. Their efforts are concentrated on long-term sustainable solutions. We are simply a small part of that process. To learn more about 1MISSION, go to 1mission.org.

We will come alongside a family who has invested hundreds of hours in their community, and in just a few days help build their entire house. You'll truly be on a mission with not for them.

Most people who serve on these projects don’t have any construction experience and many have never been on a trip before. The house is a very simple design and is intended to be constructed by a volunteer workforce. All tools and materials will be provided for us and there will be plenty of work that you will be able to do. There are also plenty of other activities to do, such as doing crafts with kids, helping locals with community projects, playing with the local kids, etc. 

1MISSION has a basecamp where we will stay. There are bunkhouses and tent camping available. There are full bathrooms with hot showers, a full-service kitchen, space for 400 volunteers, an outdoor pool, and more! They will provide all meals and purified water for us while we are at basecamp and on our job site. Click here to find out more about 1MISSION Mexico.

Costs:
- $100 deposit (due by Jan 31), $100 final payment (due by Feb 28); total payment to UCC = $200.
- You will also be responsible for any costs or fees associated with any required/suggested vaccinations, medications, and passport fees.
- You will also need money for all travel meals (we will have 4 full days of driving, 2 on each end of the trip) and any extra spending money you would like, both on the road and onsite. 

What to do next:
Pray. Then if you are interested in taking the next step, fill out and submit the Mexico Mission Trip Application. This application is due by January 31. Please turn in your $100 deposit with your application. If you would like to pay online, you may do so here. (Checks should be made out to UCC.)

We are very excited about this opportunity to serve Jesus and His Kingdom together!
