Gravity Weekend is a discipleship weekend that allows our student ministry to crank up the gravitational intensity on our students. It is a weekend which brings us back to the center of Christ, and causes us to examine our relationship with Him, each other, and the world around us.
This year the theme of Gravity Weekend is Renew. Over the weekend, we are going to look at the life of one of Jesus' twelve disciples, Peter. We will witness the renewal of Peter's own life as we follow the narrative of his discipleship with Christ, his encounter with the risen Christ, and his ministry of the gospel after the ascension of Christ.
During the weekend, small groups meet in the homes of church members for in-depth discipleship. These small group times are led by college students from around the state with the goal of beginning or strengthening the ongoing process of discipleship in each student’s life.
One of the most crucial parts of the weekend is our worship services. Each year we have a speaker and a worship leader to lead us in corporate worship. We conclude our weekend on Sunday morning as we come together to reflect on the impact of the weekend and commit to the decisions made. Please pray for our students, leaders, and our weekend as a whole that God would begin a fresh call to obedience like we’ve never seen! Feel free to ask questions, or better yet, be a part of this literally life-changing time with our students!
