Summer is here! And for most of you, that means one thing: free time! While on summer vacation from school, there are lots of different plans that you can make and trips that you can take; but as you plan your summer activities, make sure you include all that is going on at Activate. The summer always goes by fast, so don’t miss out on the great opportunities to hang out, meet new friends, and grow in your relationship with the Lord. Don’t waste your summer! Make this a life-changing summer by using your free time to serve and worship the Lord!

Here are some new opportunities for the summer:


Do you want to grow closer to friends, deepen your faith, and have lots of fun this summer? Then you need to join a Summer Connect Group! Groups will meet from 6:15-6:45pm every Wednesday night before Activate Wednesday, where a college-aged leader will encourage, disciple, and lead the group in discussion. The small groups are split between gender, where guys meet with guys and girls meet with girls.

What makes the Summer Connect Groups unique is that there is a special curriculum. Since you will have a lot of free time this summer, we want to take advantage of the time and read a book together as a ministry. The girls will be going through Lies Young Women Believe: And the Truth That Sets Them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Dannah Gresh, and the guys will be going through Disciplines of a Godly Young Man by R. Kent Hughes and W. Carey Hughes. These are great resources that are specifically designed to help young men and women grow in their faith. There will be a reading schedule that will consist of 1-2 chapters a week, and then we will discuss the topics in our Connect Groups. You can pick up your book  at Activate Wednesday or SWAT for a discounted price of $10. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to have lots of fun and fellowship with friends this summer!

To sign-up for a Summer Connect Small Group, fill out a registration card at the Information Table at one of our services.



Sponsored by the Harvest Crusades, the G3 Evangelism Conference is a free event that is designed to challenge, equip, and commission youth to be intentional and effective in spreading the gospel in their cities and spheres of influence. In order to encourage and equip us for evangelism, we will hear from motivating guest speakers, such as pastors Garid Beeler, Ronny Roa, and Levi Lusko. Also, we will have great music from guest artist All Sons and Daughters. Immediately following the conference, we are going to take all the information that we learned and put it into action by going out to the beaches and malls for street evangelism. Students can sign up for this free training.

This conference is a great opportunity for the young people of Southern California to come together for the purpose of being intentional with evangelism—to share the gospel in our homes, schools, and cities. Come ready to be challenged, equipped, and commission to share the gospel for the glory of God! Click HERE to register for this free event.

When: June 1, 10am-5pm.
Where: Harvest OC (2727 Campus Drive, Irvine 92612)
Cost: FREE
Details: Bring money for lunch and to purchase a G3 training manual.
