Disciple Now 2015 “Moment”
Picking a school that’s three hours away because you know it’s right for you.
A lay-up that slips in at the buzzer in the fourth quarter of a tied game.
Hearing “I love you” after all you feel is “I hate you”.
Deciding to help when everyone else has decided to stand aside.
A moment. That’s all that stands between you and a completely changed life. Those moments build on each other and, eventually, create a story…your story. Don’t waste a moment - it could change everything.
Disciple Now 2015 will be full of moments that could define your life. Register you and your friends for a weekend full of moment-making, a weekend you will never forget.
WHAT IS DISCIPLE NOW?
Disciple Now, or D-Now as anyone who’s hip and with it likes to call it, is a weekend targeted at experiencing Jesus. Students are divided into groups of 6-8 (same gender/same age), paired with a college leader and placed into the home of a Sevier Heights member.
HOW DO I REGISTER?
It’s easy! Just visit sevierheights.smartevents.com to register and pay online. You can also pick up a registration form in the Apex or Epicenter and put it in the drop boxes, along with a $35 check or cash, by the kitchens when you’re done. Don’t forget to fill out the Medical Release Form, it must be included, too. And for the low, low price of $1 – your friends can get in on the action! What a bargain.
WHAT SHOULD I PACK?
Make sure to bring the following with you when you come to church Friday evening:
Bible, pen and notebook
Sleeping bag and pillow
D-Now t-shirt (if you’ve already received it) and jeans for Sunday morning
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING AT D-NOW?
You’ll get a chance to hear God’s Word, worship to some new songs, talk through life with others in the same spot as you and make some memories that’ll be worth writing in a yearbook about. Plus, there’s food galore, games you won’t expect and videos that’ll hopefully get a few chuckles out of you. We can’t tell you everything because we’ve got some tricks up our sleeves.
The best weekend of the year kicks off Friday, February 20 at 6:30 p.m. then rolls through Sunday, February 22 at noon. Disciple Now is always something worth talking about - don’t miss out on the conversation.
Do the stories we tell matter? Do the stories we’re told matter? Jesus relied a lot on storytelling in His teaching. Within these simple tales are profound truths. Find yourself in the stories we tell beginning November 5.
