DNOW 2 2019

Our Disciple Now 2 Retreat for Middle School and High School Students will take place November 15-17 at Watermarks Camp!


What is Disciple Now 2?
This is a middle and high school weekend retreat at Camp Watermarks where small groups of youth (divided by gender and grade) meet in various places at camp for small group discipleship (what it means to be a follower of Jesus). These times are led by youth leaders with the goal of beginning or strengthening the ongoing process of discipleship in each youth`s life. This year our focus will be on growing and multiplying deeper relationships in our walk with Christ. In addition to incredible Bible teaching and worship there will be unique times of fellowship and recreation for each small group and their mentors. Camp Watermarks offers all kinds of fun! There are ropes courses, basketball court, gaga ball pits, evening bonfire with smores, and team building games and competition. There will also be a free time on Saturday afternoon for optional activities including a shooting range, climbing wall, paintball and so much more.  

Cost: (this includes lodging, activities, and meals).    Registration is nonrefundable

UPCOMING EVENTS!

Bring the entire family and join us for an ice cream party as we look towards the new school year!

SMALL GROUPS

Small Group Registration is now open!  Please REGISTER HERE

New this year, we will be adding a Sunday night component to our small group ministry.  Both middle and high school students will gather on Sunday nights at Ashcreek Clubhouse from 6:30-7:45PM. It is our hope that this will allow us to go deeper into scripture and grow your child's faith walk, while building on the relationships made during our early morning small groups.  Our first Sunday night will be September 8th.
Here are the locations where we will be meeting for small groups this year:
  • Middle School girls: Thursday at Chick Fil A on Route 1
  • Middle School boys: Thursday at Bojangles on Route 301
  • 10th & 12th grade girls:  Tuesdays at Panera on Route 1
  • 9th & 11th grade girls:  Wednesday at Panera on Route 1
  • High School boys:  Wednesday at Chick Fil A on Route 1
*Small Groups will be held from 6:45AM-8AM unless indicated by your child's leader.

Also new this year we are asking parents to partner with us to drive the kids to school from small groups.  Restoration will not be organizing carpools this year.  Pick up will be at 8AM each week to get students to school.  If this is a major deterrent to your child's participation please reach out to Chris Arvin or Amanda Seiders and we will connect you to parents who are carpooling within your group.

Student Leadership Team Application

youth worship team

Generation is for instrumentalists, vocalists, and tech operators (audio and visual) of all skill levels in grades 6-12.  Generation is intended to be the training ground where students of all skill levels learn to work together as a team and lead worship.  Generation students get regular opportunities to put their skills to use at church and outreach events. Rehearsals are held during the school year each Thursday evening from 6:30-7:45 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23116).  Rehearsals begin September 13.  

A note to current Generation members: Notice that the rehearsal time is different from last year. If you were in Generation or Launch last year, you do NOT need to register again.


 

Limitless (advanced skill levels): Limitless operates on an invitation-only membership. All members from the previous year are invited to participate during the current year. Other members will be added as positions become available and the need arises. This team is for students who have had time to develop skills and are largely self-sufficient in the use of their musical or technical talents. This advanced team is student led under adult supervision. The goal of Limitless is to build a repertoire so that they are always ready to go into the community and bring worship music to places where it would not otherwise be available. Rehearsals are the first and third Wednesday of every month during the school year from 7:15-8:30 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23116).
