+ Do I have to attend Grace Church's Fusion or Inside Out to go?

No way - any student middle or high school is welcome to join us. Of course, if you don't know anyone, it might be a bit awkward, but our trained adult leaders will work on helping you get aquainted with students your age.

+ Who are the adult leaders going?

Our adult leaders have all gone through background checks and many of them are parents of students who are part of our ministries. They all are going because they want to, not because they are forced. Some of them even volunteer on a weekly basis as small group leaders in Fusion or Inside out. So, you could say they are all AWESOME!

+ Why the deadlines?

We need firm numbers and this helps assure us that students sign up quickly to get the best price. This also helps with transportation costs as late signups mean we have to scramble for extra transportation.

+ What if I can't make it by 4pm to leave?

Please express your interest in going, but let us know you will have a problem making it by the leave time. We will try our best to work out a solution.

+ What if I have to cancel?

We work on each case on an individual basis.

+ What about those T-Shirts?

This year EVERYONE who attends Chill gets a T-Shirt! Select your size when registering.
