Here 2 Overcome is for students in grades 6-12 who are looking for a place to connect, grow, and serve. It is the vision of KLBC and youth leaders, Ben and Courtney Leigh, to help equip this generation of leaders to see a radical transformation for Christ.
We gather together during Incredible Wednesdays at 6:30 pm to celebrate life with laughter, friendships, great worship music, and passionate teaching from God’s Word.
We also come together for Sunday School / Bible Study at 9:00am to dive a little deeper into God’s Word. We believe that church doesn’t have to be boring!
On Friday, June 2nd, our teens had a Bigger Better Party. They traveled to homes throughout Key Largo and invited residents to our services. Our group was broken into four teams. Each team started with a nickel. Their challenge was to get something bigger or better as they visited each home. One team even came back with a toilet! What a great time!
On Saturday, June 10th, more than 20 kids met at our new church property for a kayaking adventure. With overcast skies and calm waters, we were challenged to paddle Florida Bay (with several overturns and one sinking vessel along the way!). We returned to the property for a cookout and good fellowship.
Our Destination Unknown on Friday, June 16th, was both challenging and fun. Our group of 13 youth visited many local sites and carried out Random Acts of Christian Kindness! Many individuals and families in Key Largo were ‘RACK’d’ with gift cards, coins, smiles, and invitations to our church services and events. We pray that this continues to impact the lives of the youth involved and those they encountered during this special time.
The final event for our ‘Inside Out’ summer activities was held on Saturday, June 24th. Our youth group visited a beach on Upper Matecumbe with all the water and outdoor fun anyone could want. Sailing, swimming, kayaking, water biking, volleyball, and kite flying were just some of the activities. It was a great time! A special thank you to Dennis and Denise Green for hosting us and providing all the needed equipment!
