ONCE A MONTH
Time & Location: Varies
Mission Events: These events are outreach events with a goal to reach a specific group of people outside of our Youth Group. Before each event, we will discuss some goals with the students regarding who we are aiming to reach and how they can be a disciple for Jesus at the event!
On the calendar, the mission events are listed. As we get closer to each event, more information such as time, location, our goals, and other details will be given out.

PERMISSION SLIP: If you are able to attend, please fill out the permission slip HERE and return it to us by November 16th.
Retreats: Retreats are intentional times away to experience a new awareness of the presence of God. It is a chance for an encounter with God, with other people, with creation, with issues, and with our own hearts. When we retreat, it is not for the purpose of just getting away and staying away. Everything involved in getting away, and all that is done while away, involves coming back with a renewed faith and sense of purpose in our spiritual life. Retreats also deepen the fellowship of our community of students through shared experiences and growing relationships.
COST: There is a cost in order to attend the retreats. Each retreat is different and therefore the price reflects that. As the event gets closer an estimated cost will be announced. Once we have a solid idea of how many students and leaders will be in attendance, the cost will be finalized.
WHEN: Currently we have one retreat in the Fall and one retreat in the Spring with a Mission Trip scheduled in the Summer. For more information about upcoming retreats, see below.
