DNow Weekend 2016 Promotion

This event is finished…

priceless-dnowMarch 18 – 20, 2016

Everyone struggles to grasp their real value and where that value comes from, especially students. We miss the point that our worth is tied to our maker. Because of this, students use all sorts of defense mechanisms to make themselves valuable in other ways. This often means that students get trampled on, squeezed out, and put down by other “Christian” students who should know better. These students try to earn their value through judgment, one-upmanship, and by using condescending Christianese. They move their peers farther and farther away from the Church through spiritual bullying.

Priceless will help students recognize their own value in God’s family so they can start seeing it in others. With that foundation, students will start moving past the spiritual abuse their insecurities create. More than that, they’ll learn to invite back in students who have been pushed to the margins, cherishing them as priceless children of God. The study is written to help grow the faith of committed believers while also offering opportunities for non-Christian students to understand the gospel and to make a commitment to follow Jesus as Lord.

What is DNow?
Other than pretty much being the biggest and best weekend of the year, Disciple Now (DNow) is an in-home, discipleship retreat for students in grades 7 – 12. Students will spend an entire weekend with their friends in the Host Homes of members of King’s Grant Baptist Church. Influential guest leaders (awesome college students) will lead and teach throughout the weekend. Activities include small group Bible Studies and discussions, worship, time to hang out with friends, a fun large group activity and LOTS of great food! The students will wrap up the weekend by celebrating in the worship service on Sunday. As always, friends are welcome!

Cost: February 29th – March 13th – $35

March 13th is the FINAL deadline: (This deadline is VERY important as we have to coordinate food, transportation and housing!)

  • This cost includes all meals, a t-shirt, a Bible study book, recreation activities, supplies, etc.
  • If cost is a problem for you or for a friend, please contact me in the church office.
  • Checks can be made out to KGBC with “DNow” in the memo line.

What else do I need to know?
DNow weekend begins at 6:30 PM on Friday, March 18th (please eat dinner before you come!) and ends on Sunday March, 20th after the 11:00 worship service in The Well.
Please make every effort to ensure your student can participate for the entire weekend. Missing any part of the weekend means missing a lot!
