Student Winter Conference (In Person)
January 29 & 30
Theme: Love, Sex, and Dating
Thankfully, the Bible has a lot of guidance on this topic. This conference just might change the course of your life…no, seriously. The theme Love, Sex & Dating addresses everything from “guys have cooties” to how to prepare for a godly marriage.
Our main speaker will be Greg Boone, from Look Up Lodge retreat center. We will also have other leaders from around the high country that will be leading the breakout sessions. Greg Boone presents biblical, practical teaching in a humorous and memorable format that is invaluable for students that want to be married one day, as well as for those gifted with singleness.
HUGE NOTE: Apart from the teaching for students we will also have special breakout sessions for parents!
Spiritual Formation Workshop (In Person)
Multiple dates (see below) in the Depot Room
The Spiritual Formation Workshops are a series of engaging & practical sessions to support you on your Christian journey. We hope that you leave each workshop with a few new friends, encouragement to go deeper with Christ, and some practical tools & resources to help you get there.
The workshops will meet for two hours on Sunday afternoon (3:00 – 5:00) to explore some practical ways we can grow in our love for the Lord, his church, and the lost. We hope you leave these workshops with a few new friends, greater confidence to pursue Christ, and a few tools & resources to help you along the way.
How To Know & Use Your Spiritual Gift (January 24) – 1 Peter 4:10 urges each member of the church to use their spiritual gift to serve one another. When every member does this, we display God’s varied grace. This workshop will offer a few tools to help you begin the process of discovering your gift – it’s more of an art than a science. We’ll also explore how we can use our spiritual gift to serve the church.
How To Lament (March 28) – Over 1/3 of the Psalms are laments — a type of prayer to help us navigate the chaos of our suffering. It’s an important aspect of our worship, and yet few modern people know how to use or compose a lament. We’ll explore this essential form of worship and learn how to compose laments to worship the Lord through our pain.
How to Live Generously (May 23) – The New Testament is filled with teachings on generosity. The way we think about and spend money is a barometer for how well we understand the gospel (Luke 19:1-10). And yet, it can be an uncomfortable subject to talk about because in our modern context, money is often associated with shame and regret. This workshop will provide an overview of the Bible’s powerful teaching on generosity and explore a few practical ways that we can live generously so that we can take hold of that which is truly life (1 Timothy 6:19). We hope to provide a safe space for you to work through this important value in the Bible (without being asked to give anything at the end).
