Do you know a teenager between completed 6th through 12th that needs a summer camp to go to?! We have 2 spots open that we need to fill!

Sign them up at https://odessabible.churchcenter.com/unproxy/registrations/events/691890 or send us a message if you need to make alternate payment arrangements. We never want finances to be the reason a student doesn't go to camp.

Summer camp is such a spiritually and socially transformational time that we believe every student needs to experience. It's a great time for them to explore and discover their faith in Christ!

The Season of Giving continues at Glorieta Camps.

Every year, our camp scholarship fund goes towards helping youth and families in need attend our camp programs. When donors give to our camp scholarship fund, they are giving the opportunity for more youth and families to experience Christlike change and know God.

If you are interested in learning more about our camp scholarship fund or if you are ready to join our mission to inspire Christlike change, visit https://hubs.ly/H0yqlNV0 today.

[09/20/20]   If you are seeing this and need someone to talk to, we have a great group of leaders who want you to know how good Jesus is.

Life throws us into valleys sometimes, and even in that valley we can find the goodness of God.

Reach out. We're here ready to listen and talk.

We had left Odessa for camp with 52 and came home with 50. Connor and Evan came to us and told us they wanted to stay and serve for the rest of the summer.

Evan was genuine about his faith. He knew the Lord. We are going to miss you buddy. We grieve, but we don’t grieve as those who have no hope. We know hope. We have hope.

Walk with the Lord Evan, in eternal peace. We WILL see you again.

Our Story

Wednesday Night 6:30-8p
Meeting in Student Center

"The Gathering" is the large group meeting for Rooted Youth Ministry. Students are provided four outlets for experiencing worship during this time. (1) They will have an opportunity to worship God through a time of singing. (2) They will be challenged and given another opportunity for worship through the teaching of scripture. Each week, we bring a message that is not new but still relevant in today's culture. These messages are designed to meet the youth where they're at and help them understand how to live a purposed life. (3) Teens will have the opportunity to worship God through games and hang time with their friends. We believe that all three of these outlets serve a great biblical purpose in the lives of teens. The worship of God is designed to be a lifestyle and we want to meet and help them in all areas of their lives. (4) Our students also have the opportunity to worship through fellowship.


"LifeLine Groups"
Sunday Mornings // 10:45a
Meeting in Student Center

Everyone needs a support group. At times, a teen's best support comes from their peers. Our time together on Sunday Mornings is designed for our teens to spend quality time studying the scriptures in a small and safe environment. We search for answers, we share prayers, and most of all we grow together. Join us as we continue to build these small support groups and journey through life together.
