ONEWEEK is by far the biggest and best thing that Fusion does all year long! Over the years, we have learned that ONEWEEK is not only one of the best weeks of a student’s year, but also one of the most impactful weeks of their life. Even though ONEWEEK is lots of fun, overflowing with opportunities for students to build relationships and is focused on helping students understand Jesus on their level, we realize that it comes at significant cost to the family.
We fully recognize that times change and the financial situation of a household can, at times, be in flux. This is why we always take into account the financial impact on the family when planning ONEWEEK while not sacrificing our wins (creating enjoyable environments, building relationships, helping students understand Jesus on their level). Our main goal is to get unsaved teens to ONEWEEK to hear the Gospel while providing opportunities for saved teens to be challenged to take their next step in their walk with Jesus.
As such, we have two mechanisms to help students attend ONEWEEK despite what the financial climate of your home may be.
Over the years, we have developed a great relationship with area Sonic drive thru’s. They have made fundraising cards available for our students through our church where our students are able to keep 100% of the proceeds.
In order to pick-up sonic cards, you must go to the ONEWEEK booth in the lobby, the Next Steps desk on a Wednesday or swing by the Admin Building during the week. Only 1 set of 10 sonic cards can be given at a time. You may then apply raised funds to your remaining balance online.
Any student/volunteer going to ONEWEEK may participate in selling Sonic cards.
REQUIREMENT: Any student requesting a scholarship is required to be actively involved in selling Sonic cards to help underwrite their own way to ONEWEEK.
If you are requesting a scholarship to ONEWEEK, then you must fill out the application on our website at least 30 days prior to departure. In order to apply for a scholarship, you must be able to pay at least a $100 deposit on your own. You may sell sonic cards in order to replace the initial $100 deposit.
Scholarships are awarded as funds are available. If funds are not available to cover all who have requested a scholarship, then we will first award scholarships to the students who have brought in the most money to offset their scholarship need. For example, if there is one student who has sold $200 in Sonic cards and another student who has only sold $50 in Sonic cards, then we will award scholarship funds to the student who raised $200 first.
