Discovery Weekend at St. Francis, Chapin a success

Discovery weekend - commitment through community - is a 3-day weekend held at St. Francis to help you understand God’s purpose for you, grow in His Love and to become equipped to live out the Great Commission - “Go and make Disciples,” Remembering that Christianity is caught, not taught. It is a free gift offered by Laypersons and Clergy who share their faith, commitment and lives with the candidates through study, food, fellowship, and worship. Our goals are to help you see that God does have plan for each of us, each unique.

Participants keep the weekend clear of other commitments and attend all meetings. They turn the weekend over to God. They are expected to 1. To be open to what is happening 2. To be willing to make whatever response they feel and to allow others to respond in their own way, as well 3. To know that no specific response is required of them 4. To bring curiosity with them 5. To bring their bibles with them. What a great way to get connected with God and in the parish community!
