A couple reminders heading into our last month of summer before school starts:

  • Be sure to be checking your emails on a regular basis for updates / COS news coming up. Emails are how we best communicate with you. If you have not received any emails from Mckenna, shoot her an email at mckennay@saddleback.com so she can make sure she has your correct address. 
  • We are going to start scheduling you on Planning Center so if you don't already have an account, you should be getting a welcome email from PCO in the next few weeks. 

H.A.B.I.T.S.
H- Hang time with God

We are officially post camp season. As you have headed back home and back to reality, be encouraged to be spending time with Jesus. Whether that's taking time to sit and listen, worshipping in your car, reading scripture and journaling- whatever your "hang time" looks like, be intentional with your time with Him. Students, He wants you to know Him and experience His presence. Our prayer is that your worship on stage is an overflow out of your worship and time spent with Him off stage.  


Students, we love YOU and have had such a great summer partying for Jesus with you. Be sure to hug an intern as they are heading out and back to school (or to their home state/country). Our team is praying for you as you prepare to head back to school! We're here for you. We're here for you. We're here for you.

Love,
COS Staff
