Re: Getting ready for DiscipleNow
We are thrilled that you are going to be a part of DiscipleNow. It is going to be a great weekend. You play an important part in getting the most out of the weekend. I would encourage you to begin praying now, asking God to do a needed work in your life. This letter is written to let you and your parents know as much as possible about what you need to do in order to get the most out of the weekend.
Schedule: The weekend begins on Friday, November 20, your student needs to be here at 6:00 PM. Students will have supper in the fellowship hall and you, the parent, will be given a prayer sheet and where your child is staying when you drop your child off so please come into the building. We were able to cut the cost of DNow to $40 per student, so if you have not paid this will be the cost for your child, if you have we will reimburse you on Friday, Nov. 20. DiscipleNow will conclude Sunday after church.
Car Permission Slip: Unless it is an absolute necessity we would rather students not drive to Host Homes. However, if you need to, you must fill out the “car permission slip” attached below. Notice that your parents and I must sign the card. Make sure I sign it before we leave the church on Friday night. When you have completed the card, give it to your host family or leader.
Time Away Card: If you have a calendar conflict already scheduled during DiscipleNow, complete the “time away card” below. It will need to be signed by you, your parents, and me, and taken to the Host Family at the beginning of DiscipleNow. If it is possible, we strongly encourage you to participate in the entire weekend event. The weekend is set up in such a way that everything builds on the prior session, so when you are unable to be at just one session – you are missing a lot.
Guidelines: An important part of the success of the weekend is your behavior. We want this weekend to be a great time for you, but for this great time to happen we need you to cooperate with the guidelines we have for the weekend. So you will know what we expect, we ask that you and your parents read through the guidelines and sign the bottom of the sheet. I must have this sheet on Friday for you to participate in the weekend.
Where You will be Staying: You will find out where you will be staying on Friday, Nov.20. Parents, if you need to know sooner, just call the office.
What to Bring:
- Bible, pen, and notepad
- Bedding (sleeping bag, pillow, etc.)
- Bathroom stuff (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc.)
- Recreation and casual clothes

· Bring whatever snacks you would like to share with others at your Host Home.
What to NOT to Bring:
This is discussed in guidelines.
DiscipleNow is going to be a great weekend, so begin praying and preparing for it—NOW! If you have any questions about the weekend, please give me a call.
