What happens during the weekend?
All students are grouped by grade and gender and assigned to a GYM leader and host home. All groups will arrive at their assigned host home on Friday night, which are spread across the Arlington and Mansfield area. The groups will walk through a Bible study curriculum Friday night and Saturday morning, then will leave for a team building competition hosted by Group Dynamix at the Grace Community Church campus. Saturday concludes with a Facedown worship service that is always the capstone of these weekends. Focus then wraps up on Sunday after second service.
What's the theme of the weekend?
Our theme for Focus is Living in Light of Eternity. Come and have a great time hanging out, worshipping, and learning how to have an eternal perspective.
Who are the leaders & host homes?
All Focus leaders & host homes are screened and trained in the GYM Policies & Procedures. The leaders for the weekend are current GYM leaders, and host homes are chosen from core families inside our church.
How much does FOCUS cost?
The cost is $60 per student. This money pays for Bible study materials, four meals, transportation, a t-shirt, and our Group Dynamix event. There are also scholarships available for those who cannot afford this event.
