DNOW is an local weekend retreat where students will have the opportunity to spend the weekend together in worship services, community, and games.
The hope for this weekend is that students’ lives will be transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ; that they will be able to worship collectively with their peers and classmates from other churches. We want our students to understand that even though we go to different churches, we all have the same purpose - to glorify God.
There are few things more powerful than witnessing someone throw all of themselves after a cause or a commitment. When we as people get behind something with all our energy and focus, it’s remarkable what we can do.
The opposite is true as well. So often we see the broken results of someone giving only a portion of their focus and energy to something – a cause, a task, a relationship. Half-hearted commitment is really no commitment at all.
This is especially true when it comes to our faith. The Bible is clear: God expects and deserves our undivided affection and commitment. Anything less falls short of who we are called to be as Christ-followers. You’ve seen the power of an undivided devotion to God.
