What is SPIN Weekend?

SPIN Weekend is First West’s in town retreat for Middle School and High School Students in Ouachita Parish and Northeast Louisiana Area. It is taking place January 25th-28th, 2018. It is a time of worship and community for students to experience the goodness of God.

What should my student expect during the weekend?

Students will check-in for SPIN WKND on Thursday night. Middle School and High School will have separate areas to check-in.  After check-in students will meet their groups, eat together and worship together. Students will go to their own homes on Thursday night.  Friday evening at 6:15 PM students will bring luggage and our large kickoff will begin that night. Students will stay in Host Homes starting Friday night. Saturday, students will worship together, dig deep into God’s word during small groups, serve the community and have lots of fun. On Sunday, students will come to church with their group, leaders and host home. SPIN WKND will conclude Sunday around 12:45 PM. Students will grab their luggage and return to their own homes.

What is a Host Home? Who are the leaders?

Host Homes are families within our church who love opening their space for students.  Each Host Home undergoes a background check.  The leaders are trusted college students from around the area who love Jesus and love serving our students. Each Leader also has a background check.

Who will be in my student’s Small Group/Host Home?

Each student will be in a home with students of the same gender and grade. There will be multiple homes for each Grade and Gender.  For example, if you have a 7th Grade girl- she will be in a Group/Host Home with other 7th Grade girls. On the registration form, there is a space for your student to put a preferred roommate. We will do our best to accommodate requests. The earlier your registration is submitted the likelihood of getting your preferred roommate increases.

What do I need to send with my student to SPIN WKND?

If you have not paid your registration fee we need you to do that ASAP. If you have not paid it by January 25th, 2018- we need you to please bring it when you drop your student off. Please send $10 with your student for free time. Please send your student with snacks they can share within the home.  This will help offset the burden of snacks at the Host Homes. There is a “what to bring list” in your parent packet (this will be sent to you in email form) and is available for download.
