GREAT ADVENTURE 2021
Every summer, we look forward to Great Adventure—a series of events and activities for everyone to grow spiritually and share the good news of Jesus in our community and throughout the world. And this year is no exception! This summer will look slightly different from years past. We're excited to invite you to be a part of Great Adventure Week!
WHAT IS GREAT ADVENTURE WEEK?
Great Adventure Week will be a unique combined Bootcamp + Backyard Bible Club experience wrapped into one action-packed week on July 11-16. Check out more information about what is involved in Great Adventure Week below.

Boot Camp | July 11 - 15
We'll kick off with an exciting time of worship Sunday evening July 11. Students (completed 6th grade - 12th grade) will then come together in the mornings and afternoons of July 12-15 for a Bootcamp like never before! They will learn leadership skills and teamwork, make new friends, and have a blast as they prepare to lead Backyard Bible Clubs. There will be engaging worship, inspirational training, meaningful team-building, valuable practice time, and tons of fun! Click to see the week's schedule.
Backyard Bible Clubs | Evenings of July 12 - 15
From Monday to Thursday, Hill Country adults and families will host Backyard Bible Clubs for kids (K - completed 5th grade) in their neighborhoods to have fun and learn about Jesus. Teams of students will lead these clubs each evening, using games, skits, and songs to share the good news of Jesus Christ throughout our community. Adults can also drive these student teams!
