The Weekend is an annual gathering of people from different generations, locations, and vocations. We come together to learn from one another and to encounter the person of Jesus through story, friendship, and community.
Who is The Weekend for? Everyone! This is a great opportunity to experience as a family or with a group of friends, neighbors or colleagues.
What to expect:
Time set aside to help you center your life on the teachings of Jesus.
A multigenerational community experience.
Activities: Zip lines, swimming pool, go-karts, basketball courts, frisbee golf and more!
Building friendships in a variety of contexts.
Morning and evening sessions, with plenty of free time in between (the basic schedule is below).
Small groups for teens and adults.
Kids' Club is available for kids ages 3+.

Why come this year?
This year we shift to a new focus: caring for our states, cities and neighborhoods. Together we'll explore a vision of kingdom health that thrives where we live, work and/or go to school. Like-minded friends
from throughout our region (and nation!) are coming to The Weekend
to learn more about personal and community transformation.
Check-in begins at 4pm and dinner starts at 6pm.
After dinner we will have our first main session.
If you cannot arrive by 6pm – no worries!
We will be there to greet you when you arrive.
We believe in a well-rounded experience: Sharing meals, gathering together for good conversations so we can learn from one another,
time for self-reflection, opportunities to spend time with old friends and make new ones, plenty of fun & maybe even a bit of rest . . . all while surrounded by friends in a beautiful setting!
Get ready to enjoy yourself.
Breakfast will be provided, and we will wrap up our time together! Goodbyes can be hard, but we trust you will continue both your old and new friendships from afar.
You should be on the road home no later than 11am.
We often have requests for scholarship assistance. If you would like to help contribute to this fund so that others can attend,
