What is it? Princess & Warrior Weekend is the BIGGEST event our youth group family participates in and it's INCREDIBLE! We take our big youth group family and separate them by age and gender into lots of small bible study groups led by absolutely amazing leaders. There's no featured speaker, no big name band, no special lighting, and nothing really flashy at all. Teenagers experience 12 hours of Bible study honestly answering their real and difficult questions and have a chance to talk about tough issues they're going through. Teenagers LOVE it! They are more excited about this event than anything else we do!
This is a retreat where teenagers get Biblical answers for their honest questions about dating, sex, friendships, social media, peer pressure, bullying, self image, absolute truth, doctrine, theology and much more. Princess & Warrior Weekend gets students involved in solid teaching and conversations with some of the absolute best leaders in the country who are passionate about teaching and showing teenagers what it means to be a real man or woman of God. We’ll also have a whole heap of fun as we compete to see which gender will reign supreme in the Competition for the Crown!
What's the plan for 2021? Everything is different these days because of COVID. Many things are being canceled and postponed, but NOT Princess & Warrior Weekend! We will still have this absolutely amazing event, but it will be hosted at Temple Baptist Church this year. We will still have the same amazing leaders and Bible study sessions. We will still have the same amazing competitions between guys and girls. We will still have incredible experiences like bonfires, movie nights, archery tag, unfair flag football, and much more. We will still have the same amazing food! The only big difference is the location. We will host everything here at lovely and scenic Temple Baptist Church and students will not spend the night.This change allows us to keep students and their families safer. Masks will be required indoors. Social distancing will be practiced. Amazing fun will be had by all!!
We're also including parents this year! At 10:30am on Sunday morning, January 17th, we will have a parent session for any and all parents of teenagers involved in Princess & Warrior Weekend. John is partnering with the fun and fabulous Linda Weir to share with parents about what students are learning, Scripture references being used to answer the difficult questions of the weekend, and a challenge for parents to continue tackling tough topics as they disciple their teenagers. Linda has been through the difficult and rewarding battles of raising teenagers and has some amazing things to say to parents! You don't want to miss it!
Check out the new schedule to help you see some of the changes!
