All students 6th-12th grade are invited to join us for a weekend of study, worship, and fun as we dive into conversations centered around The Beatitudes. This year we also welcome our friends from FUMC Jasper and Atascocita UMC!
This year we've added in a special activity on Saturday afternoon for the students to enjoy! Every student can choose either to play paintball at Swift-n-Silent Paintball in Nacogdoches OR jump the afternoon away at Hijinx Trampoline Park in Lufkin. Both are included in the cost of the weekend, however space is limited to 45 students for paintball.
Speaker: Michael Gienger

Originally knows as Central United Methodist Church, the congregation re-launched in 2015 and is having a blast doing church differently in the community of Galveston. Michael is excited to be joining us this year and to be a part of our STORM Weekend tradition.
Worship Band: The Homestead
We had so much fun with The Homestead last year that we've invited them back! The Homestead is a collection of worship leaders and musicians from across the Houston area but they call The Woodlands, Texas “home.” To learn more about the band and listen to their music, click here.

Another familiar face joining us in January is Matt Robison! Matt is a free-lance artist from The Woodlands, Texas. He believes that art is a wonderful outlet to express the gift of creativity that God has given us and that it’s a great tool to share the gospel and love of Jesus with others. Matt uses his talents as a stage artist to create incredible pieces of artwork during worship services and as a speaker for youth and children’s camps and events.
