Spring Supper Scramble

Think of it like a one-night dinner club! Sign up and you'll be assigned as a host home to go to on 4/27 for dinner with other women. That's it!

Sign up by confirming your attendance here.

If you'd like, you may request to be assigned to the same group as one friend. After that, it's pretty random and you're sure to make new friends of various ages!

First Students Disciple Now Weekend
Apr

to Apr 22

First Students Disciple Now Weekend

If we look around us today at our culture, there is more division than there is unity. Some division is trivial. Some is life changing. And yet, into this landscape, the Gospel speaks a profound truth: in Christ, we are united. We are together.

Disciple Now is a weekend event where students spend time in large group and small group Bible Study. This year our theme is, TOGETHER: Living In Christ-Centered Community. Through the weekend students will worship, pray, and fellowship together; as they learn to have community in Christ.

For more information about DNow, please contact Josh in the Student Ministry Office. Disciple Now is April 20th-22nd and the cost is $50. Please register by following the link below.

Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center in Waxahachie, TX (link to lakeviewcamp.net)

We attended this multi-church retreat in 2017 and had such a great time we’re going again! This is a multi-church retreat, but church groups sit together and church group time is built into the schedule. We hope to take a big group this year, and would love for you to be part of this opportunity to grow in our relationships with Christ and together!

Speakers: Kathy Howard, Alta Lynn Gerlach, and Cynthia Hopkins

Worship led by Jeff Berry

Special Guests: Anna Berry (Anna Berry Designs and HGTV’s Nashville Flipped) and Fish Sticks Comedy

Lodging: slumber party cottages (linens not provided) or motel-style lodges (linens provided)

Cost (includes 2 nights lodging, 5 meals, program, and numerous activities):

Slumber Party Cottage: $130

Lodges (2-3 people): $150

*Scholarships available.

**College and Gap students pay half-price (lodging in cottages).

For details and full schedule, visit platform320.org/more-retreat (link). However, please do not register individually on the website. So that we can remain organized as a group, please register with an envelope at the First Women’s table or in the church office.

First Women will be staying two nights, but there is a one night option for those who can only stay a shorter time. Transportation will be coordinated for both groups, if needed.

Registration will be open beginning November 5 and deadline is January 7, 2018.
