IMPACT WEEKEND

IMPACT weekend is not just any ordinary DNow. IMPACT Weekend will be filled with amazing worship, as well as messages from, Wes Hamilton. However, IMPACT Weekend will help us to all look more like Jesus by the end of the event through small group Bible study, break-outs, and staying in host homes (that's where you come in!).

*Please remember that this weekend is a great time for you to feed into the lives of our students, please be intentional*

What if my spouse can’t be present the entire weekend?

That’s fine - as long as we have transportation covered.

What do I do with students’ medications?

Students will surrender their meds at registration.  They will be bagged and tagged and given to you at/after registration.  Please distribute them discreetly at the times required.

What if one of my students needs to leave for a sport/job/tonsillectomy?  

That’s fine!  Please just know where they will be going and when they will be back.  Leaders are provided with ‘Time Away’ cards for this.

Should I get my students phone numbers?

What if a student gets sick? 

Please call their parents and John Louviere. 

Should I lay down the law?  

Yes! It’s your home, please let students and leaders know your standards and stick to them.  Please clearly explain your expectations.  For example, as soon as they arrive, gather them up and tell them:

This is your home for the weekend!  Please respect it. Please pick up after yourself – the maid is not here.  If you spill, no biggie! Let us know so we can attend to it. If you need a plunger, they are next to the toilet or ask my husband.
