One Weekend is an incredible “summer camp style” weekend experience for students 6-12 grades. One Weekend will challenge students at all points in their spiritual journeys to pursue Jesus and the freedom He offers. This year we have an amazing line up of on-stage worship teams, speakers, and a Christian Rap artist.
Students will be grouped together by grade and gender and will stay in CBC host homes where they will build community with peers and engage in small group discussions. In addition, they will participate in 4 sessions at CBC on Friday and Saturday, culminating with a worship celebration with the rest of our CBC family on Sunday at the 10 a.m. service.
This weekend allows students to connect with friends and invest in their relationship with Jesus all without having to leave town. We want to see every teenager possible attend this event. We believe it can be a launching point to seeing our city impacted for the kingdom and to see our CBC Student family grow!
As a host home you are opening your home up to a small group of students along with 2 adult group leaders. The group sizes range in size from 5 to 14 people. As a host home we ask that you provide a room with a bed for the adult group leader(s) to sleep in along with an area for the students to sleep – this can be a living room or game room. Students will bring sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, and air mattresses to sleep on. You will also provide breakfast for the group on Saturday morning. Breakfast can be cereal, pancakes, casseroles, donuts, etc… We also ask that host home assist in transporting groups to and from the church through out the weekend.
