    Three Main Sessions with Worship and Talks from Professor, Author, and Bible Translator Bill Mounce

    On Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday night, we will have main sessions with worship led by the RealLife Band, talks about God's character from our guest speaker Bill Mounce, stories of how God is at work in our lives, and small group (no worries, we will assign these when you arrive!) times where we will discuss what we are learning.

    Time for Fun in Community

    One of the most important parts of Fall Getaway is having time to connect with others from our Cru movement and build community. Whether you are getting to know your small group more, reconnecting with old friends, or making brand new friends, Fall Getaway will have time for you to connect in community. We will have formal chances to connect in small groups through discussion times during main sessions and through the annual Amazing Race competition. And we will have informal chances to connect by playing volleyball and other games in the gym, competing in the Capture the Flag tournament on Saturday afternoon, playing board games in the game room, sipping on coffee from the coffee tent, boating on the lake and much more!

    Time to Reflect and Connect with God

    While we want Fall Getaway to be a fun and community filled weekend, we also want to provide a chance for you to slow down a bit and spend time connecting with God. On Saturday morning we will give you tools and space for a "quiet time" where you can read the bible and talk with God for a few minutes about your semester and what you are learning at Fall Getaway. We would also LOVE for our community to spend time throughout the weekend casually sharing about what we are learning and growing in.
