DNOW BR is an area wide event where all students will have the opportunity to spend a weekend together in worship, teaching, games, and community. Our desire for this weekend is that students’ lives will be transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ and that they will be able to worship collectively with their peers and classmates. We want students to understand that even though we go to different schools, jobs, and homes; even though we go through different struggles in life, we all have the same purpose - to glorify God.
DNOWBR is an awesome Area Wide Student Retreat for all students 6th-12th grade! It is going to be a jam packed weekend with so much happening and you don't want to miss it!
DNOWBR this year will be held
February 21 - February 23
Students will be hosted by members of First Baptist Blue Ridge in area homes around Blue Ridge. Leaders will be in every home to lead discussion, engage students in small groups and games, and to keep everyone safe
Our main sessions are going to start with a rally that has games, videos, and prizes, but will be wholly focused on seeking and praising Jesus Christ. We will have Worship led by Ryan Dusek and members of the FBBR band, Prayer, and Messages taught by Josiah Presley.
We are going to be doing so much this weekend! With games, rallies, challenges, mission work, photo hunt, sports, video games, meals, worship, teaching, prayer and anything else we can fit into it, this weekend is not one to miss!
The cost of DNOWBR is only $35 per student. This includes 4 meals, Lodging, Worship, Teaching, Games with Prizes, tons of Fellowship, and don't forget the T-Shirt! (Discounts can be made for families with 3 or more students, please contact us with questions)
