BASECAMP FAQ’s

What is the vision behind Basecamp? 

The overall Student Ministry at Five Stones is called Summit, because it is our prayer and goal to help Students Summit in their faith before they leave High School. To Summit means that they will have a passionate personal relationship with God through faith in Christ that empowers them to be led by the Holy Spirit to share that faith with others and make disciples.

When a person is trekking a major Summit, they physically and mentally cannot go from the base of the mountain to the Summit in one trip, but instead they have to keep coming back to Basecamp. On a physical Expedition, the Basecamp is where new climbers arrive, those in the process of summiting come back to, those that have already reached the top and need to re-acclimatize before heading back down the mountain, and is also where the guides and experts who help and train everyone are all present in the same environment.

On a spiritual level for our Students it’s a similar process. Basecamp is a place for Students to come back to each week, a place to be comfortable in whether it’s their first time to church or if they have already reached the “Summit.” We will continually be coming back to the Gospel, because it is the foundation for beginning a relationship with God but also growth in discipleship.

Where and when will it be?

We have a new location! Basecamp will be meeting next door to the middle school at Cuthbertson High School, until Five Stones makes the move to our community campus. 

Sunday Nights 5pm – 7pm at Cutherbertson High School (1400 Cuthbertson Rd, Waxhaw, NC 28173)
Doors to the school will open at 4:30pm and the High School Large Group and Middle School Small Groups will start right at 5pm!

Who attends Basecamp?

Basecamp will be for both Middle School (6th-8th) and High School Students (9th-12th). One location. Two separate environments. We understand that Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers learn in very different styles. So we have set up the night that upon arrival Middle School students will be directed to meet with their small groups in the Cafeteria for small group discipleship and High School Students will be directed to the Auditorium for a Large group experience with games, worship, and age specific teaching. The groups will switch with a transition period in the middle called BASECAMP MIDWAY with games and food. High Schoolers will end the night in their small groups and Middle School in their large group environment.

What is Basecamp Orientation?

Our very first Basecamp starts with a Student / Parent Orientation on Aug. 27th at 5pm in the Cuthbertson High School Auditorium. On this night we will be walking students and parents through a typical night of Basecamp and allow students and parents to meet their Small Group Leaders and other Summit Leaders. Parents will only be attending for the first night of Basecamp. Starting on Sept. 10th, parents will drop off and pick up students each Sunday night, except for designated nights where parents are invited.

What will Middle Schoolers do on Sunday mornings?

Middle School Students are encouraged to serve during an hour of Community Worship on Sunday mornings. If a Middle School family attends for two hours on a Sundaymorning, we encourage Middle Schoolers to attend community worship with their families in addition to serving one hour.

What will High Schoolers do on Sunday mornings?

High School Students are encouraged to attend 1 hour of Community Worship and serve 1 hour on Sunday mornings.

Summit exists to partner with parents to encourage students to know God and take their next step with Him.

We seek to help students experience three things:

  • WONDER for who God is
  • DISCOVERY of who He created them to be
  • PASSION for loving God and others

Everything we do is designed to help students take ownership of their faith through the basic truths of:

I WILL LOVE GOD BECAUSE HE WILL NEVER STOP LOVING ME.

I WILL FOLLOW JESUS BECAUSE HE KNOWS ME BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF.

I WILL LIVE OUT GOD’S STORY SO OTHERS CAN KNOW WHO JESUS IS.
