What is a D-Now Anyway?
D-Now (Disciple Now) is an in-town weekend spiritual retreat for youth. Youth are assigned to host homes by grades and gender where they spend Friday night and Saturday night. During the event they spend time in Bible study, fellowship, and various activities at the church and at host homes.
When is the D-Now?
Friday, December 4 @ 6:00 PM – Sunday, December 6, after church
Who can go?
DNow is open to all middle school and high school students currently in 7th-12th grade.
How much does it cost?
The cost is $30 per student. (meals and t-shirt included!) You can pay in the church office or online when you register. Please make checks payable to “First Baptist Church La Grange” and mark on the memo line “DNow - <student name>”
Where will it be held?
You’ll be staying in host homes based on your grade and gender. Activities will be held at host homes and at the church. (Transportation between the church and host homes is handled by the host homes, or designated drivers.)
Who are the host home hosts?
A host home is where the Bible study and fellowship primarily occurs. Students spend Friday night and Saturday night at these locations. Our host homes are families that are involved members of FBCLG and many times the hosts are parents of students in our youth group.
Depending on the number of students that signup, the exact division of the host homes varies. Typically it is divided as follows: Middle School Girls, Middle School Boys, High School Girls, and High School Boys. If group sizes grow beyond the capacity of the host home, others may be added.
Who will be leading the students?
Each group of students will have a leader that will go with them to all activities and spend the night with them at the host home. This leader, like our hosts, are carefully selected from involved members of FBCLG. These leaders will hang out with the students all weekend, and lead the students in all small group discussion times.
