Students will be able to tell this year’s Disciple Now (D-NOW) Weekend will be different almost immediately.
Cody Robertson, youth minister at First Baptist Church of Eupora, said FBC Eupora will be partnered with multiple churches and will not hold services in Eupora. D-NOW will be Feb. 10-12.
“We plan to spend Saturday afternoon involved with mission work, intentionally reaching out to areas of poverty in Choctaw and Webster County,” Robertson said. “With a large number of churches involved, we can expect everything to be done on a larger scale. Worship service, recreation, even eating will all be done with every church that is involved.”
This year’s Webster County Disciple Now (D-Now) guest speaker, Walt Barnes, said he is praying that D-Now is “an awesome time of social and spiritual growth.”
“D-Now is always special because it is a time where members of the student ministry become closer friends and new students truly become part of the group,” Barnes said. “The spiritual growth, however, is the most valuable part of D-Now. My favorite stories about D-Now are not the ones about how many people made a decision/commitment at D-Now. My favorite stories happen three and four weeks after D-Now when it becomes clear that some students are following through on the decisions and commitments they made at camp. In other words, the best part of D-Now is when students start producing fruit after D-Now.”
The Webster County D-Now is set for Feb. 6-8 at First Baptist Church of Eupora. Over 220 students in grades 7-12 from churches throughout Webster County have already signed up to be part of the event. Continue reading
