What is it?

Fuego is a weekend where Middle Schoolers have the chance to hang out with friends, (and give parents a break), hear relevant teachings from the Bible and be challenged to make life-changing decisions. Think of it as a mini Camp United taking place right here in EastLake. Parents, you don’t want your students to miss this event!

Tell me more

The weekend will kick off on Friday night, November 15 and wrap up on Sunday, November 17 at Noon. Throughout the weekend, 8-10 students of the same grade and gender will stay at an EastLake Student Ministry volunteer’s home. Students will experience large group teaching and worship at the church several times throughout the weekend. Small group discussions will take place back in the homes. There will be several exciting, memorable activities as well.

Fuego is going to be an incredible weekend that students in all the area Middle Schools and Aux Clubs will be talking about for months. Your kid will not want to miss it! Registration is limited to the first 200 middle school students so be ready to sign up beginning October 1 right here.
