The Return of Summer Slam
The excitement is building in FUEL Student Ministries as the return of the annual SummerSlam Contest Series draws closer. This summer contest has quickly become one of the most anticipated events of the summer since Pastor Aaron introduced it to our students in 2008. He explains that, “Each year we divide the students into teams and have a summer-long competition that is a lot of fun.” The students compete with each other in a variety of ways including dress up theme nights, weekly games, as well as some interesting contests that are unique to say the least.
Pastor Aaron gave some good indicators that although SummerSlam will be returning to FUEL on Wednesday, May 24, it will be returning with some major changes to the format. “Don’t get me wrong,” said Pastor Aaron, “it will still be full of fun, excitement and competition, but we will be changing things around a bit to keep it fresh and new.” Many of the changes that Pastor Aaron is implementing started as suggestions from the students themselves.
One thing that is staying the same in this year’s contest is the reward trip for the winning team. Each year, those on the winning team that qualify receive a free trip to Six Flags Over Georgia when the ministry takes their annual trip later this year.
While the competition brings great excitement and fun to the ministry, the most important aspect of this contest is that it brings in students to hear the word of God every week. Make sure your student is a part of this great event!
