Overnight is an event specifically for Lansing 5th grade students. The event runs from Friday, Feb 1 at 9pm through Sunday, Feb 2 at 7am. It is open to any 5th grade student.
The purpose of the event is to connect students in small groups, and build the relationship between students and their leader. Throughout the night we will have plenty of fun, plenty of food, and plenty of chances to build friendships around taking next steps with God.

When and where is drop off?
Drop off will be happening in the Lobby of the 2|42 Lansing Campus. All students should enter through the front doors for registration promptly at 9pm on Friday, February 1st for drop off.
Should my student have dinner before drop off?
Yes! Make sure your student has dinner before coming to Overnight. We will have snacks later on in the evening, but a full dinner will not be provided.
What happens during “EPIC GAME TIME”
EPIC GAME TIME is the what makes Overnight truly a 5th Grade event. 5th Graders NEED to have fun, and we use games in order to provide them with more fun than they could ever expect. Small Groups will compete in games all night. When you ask your kid, “How was Overnight?” expect them to tell you all about the EPIC GAME TIME!
What happens in Main Sessions?
Main Sessions are used to bring the story of Jesus to life for your students. We use videos & live teaching to present the Gospel in a way that is perfect for a 5th Grader to understand.
What happens in Small Groups?
We always say that Small Groups are the most important part of what we do for students. You see, 5th Graders can’t simply be told about Jesus, they have to have opportunities to talk about Jesus, and more importantly, what He’s doing in their lives. This happens in Small Groups where students will be put in a group with about 10 other students and 1-2 Small Group Leaders. At Overnight, your students will learn with their small group, compete with their small group, and grow with their small group. Sometimes people ask what the best way is to help their student take next steps with God is. The answer?… SMALL GROUPS!
Where are students sleeping?
Students will be sleeping on the auditorium floor split up between boys and girls. They will need to bring something to sleep under (or partner with friends) and to sleep in. This can be a sleeping bag, a tent, a refrigerator box, a creative blanket fort – whatever you can think of.
Do I need to send my kid with money?
Nope! We have that covered.
When and where is pickup?
Pick up will be in the Lobby at 7am on Saturday, February 2nd.
