MY Weekend 2018
Friday, February 16, 7:00 PM
An unforgettable weekend designed for students to interact with God and one another in a variety of fun and focused environments. Students will be placed in groups of 10-12 by grade and gender and will stay in a home sponsored by background-checked members of The Met.
Fear can keep us from fully embracing God’s plan for our lives. Whether it’s fear caused by insecurity or doubt, or the fear of rejection and un-met expectations, fear holds us back. God has called us to face our fears and empowers us to overcome fear with faith. Students will discover powerful moments from Jesus’ life where He modeled fearless faith, and they will be encouraged to face these fears with boldness and belief.
