What is Bible & Beach?

Bible & Beach is a week designed for high school students to come together, connect with Jesus, and have an incredible time in the process.

About Bible & Beach

This “can’t miss” experience takes place in Panama City Beach, Florida. There, students build relationships with one another through small group time and fun activities. High schoolers also have the opportunity to encounter God and grow their faith through personal devotions and challenges from the Bible. Mornings and evenings provide moments to worship, and afternoons leave space for relaxing and having fun. Throughout the week, students find themselves becoming a part of God’s family. The interactions students have throughout Bible & Beach week can make a difference for a lifetime and even for eternity. Bible & Beach is open to incoming high school freshmen through outgoing seniors. Bible & Beach dates for 2015 are June 20-26.
