Middle School Believe

What is Believe?  

Believe is an AMAZING weekend designed just for Middle School students.  Join hundreds of other students for a weekend of wild fun, an overnight in a hotel, worship, activities... and MORE!

What are the dates for Believe?

The dates for Believe are March 1-2, 2019.  Parents will drop off students downtown at  DoubleTree hotel at approximately 5:30pm on Friday, March 1.  Pickup will be from the Bank of Springfield Center at approximately 4:15pm on Saturday, March 2.  

Who is Believe for?

All current 6th - 8th grade students can go to Believe.  You don't have to attend South Side to be a part of this event.  Students are encouraged to bring friends.  

Where is it being held this year?

Believe will be held at the Bank of Springfield Center in Springfield. 

Where do you stay?

We will be staying at the Abraham Lincoln-Double Tree hotel, located at 701 East Adams St. in downtown Springfield.

What is the rooming situation?

Each hotel room will have an adult leader in the room. Room assignments will be gender specific.

Why stay overnight if the event is in Springfield?

We want to give our middle school students a “get away” experience for this conference. It would be easy to have our students go home for the night, but we believe they would miss out on some great relational time with each other, and their leaders. 

Will there be chaperones?

Yes! We will have a great group of leaders on this trip. Some will be familiar faces from The Rising each weekend.  All will complete and pass the same background check that we require to serve in Student Ministry. 

When are the payments and online consent forms due?

Regular Rate: $115 after January 30 (non-refundable $25 deposit due upon registration)

Final Balance as well as the online consent forms (SSCC and CIY) are both due by Monday, February 25.  These forms will be emailed after you register and we get closer to the event.

What is included in the cost?

The registration fee covers the cost of Believe registration costs, lodging (DoubleTree Hotel), dinner on Friday and breakfast/lunch on Saturday.   If this is a struggle for you, please see below.  

What if I can't afford the total cost?

Don't worry.  We don't want cost to prevent a student from being a part of this great weekend.  If the cost is a burden for you, please reach out to Adam (contact info below).  He will work with you on coming up with a solution that works for your family.  

Who should I contact if I have more questions?

Adam Lanter, Student Pastor
