This year, D-Now will be March 29th-31st.  The cost is $30 which includes food, t-shirt and books.  We will be joining in with other churches to build a community of fellowship and unity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is D-Now?

D-Now stands for Disciple Now.  It’s a weekend where students are challenged to either begin a growing relationship with God or take the next step in their faith with God.  The goal is to challenge students to grow, and example what a healthy disciple’s life looks.  The weekend entails large groups teaching and worship, small group time with Bible teaching, accountability and prayer, service projects, and plenty of time to meet and hang out with friends.

What is the theme Exchange about?

The theme Exchange is based from Ephesian 2:4-5 “Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions.” In every exchange, something must be given up in order for something to be gained.  At the heart of the Gospel, there is a single, powerful exchange that occurred when a flawless savior took the flaws of humanity to the cross, exchanging His life for ours.

But this one exchange actually empowers countless exchanges in the lives of those who will believe and follow. Death for Life. Self for Christ. Hate for Love. Comfort for Calling.

What does the cost cover?

The cost is $30 per student.  That covers the t-shirt, food, and book that each student will receive.  It also covers the cost of supplies and equipment that will be used for the weekend.

Are there scholarships available?

Scholarships are available, but must be requested in person prior to the weekend.  If you would like to give a scholarship or make a donation, please contact Derrick Laughlin or visit our Give page.

Where do students stay?

Students will be staying at host homes.  Host homes are homes of current, active church members who have agreed to host the students.  Each group is gender-based, (guys with guys and girls with girls), and their group leader will be present with them.  Host homes are only used for sleeping and showering. All other activities will take place at the church.

I want to help.  How can I sign up?

We also love to have extra help.  You can head over to the registration page, and sign-up as a volunteer.  You can choose the area you would like to serve, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
