BIG WEEKEND 2023
This year our theme is “TRUTH: Unified, Sanctified, and Sent.” Our three main sessions on Friday and Saturday will be held at Quail Springs Baptist Church which provides an incredible opportunity for hundreds of students from the area to gather together and worship the Lord. Our prayer is that this corporate gathering will show a broader picture of the church and encourage the students to realize they are not alone in their faith.
This weekend event is a great opportunity to connect to the Student Ministry for the first time. Our prayer is that many will connect with Christ for the first time as well. Please encourage your sons and daughters to be a part and encourage them to take advantage of the opportunity to invite friends…especially those without a church home. Over the years BIG Weekend has served as an entry point into the lives of several students who had not been a part of a spiritual community. Plus, it’s been a great vehicle to encourage our students to have a heart for the people in their lives who may not know Christ.
Throughout the weekend, about 8-10 students will stay at a Heritage host home along with 2 Heritage small group leaders. These leaders will facilitate small group discussions and encourage the students to recognize the power and relevance of God’s Word. We will have an Amazing Race for the Heritage students on Saturday afternoon. Things wrap up at Heritage on Sunday morning in the Youth Room. (Note: students do not have to spend the night in order to participate in the weekend. Please let me know if that’s your plan.)
