DISCOVERY is a youth weekend for spiritual formation where our students experience God’s love, the joy and forgiveness of Christ, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The weekend is for students in grades 6-8. High school students attend as well and are asked to be leaders for the weekend. DISCOVERY is held at the church and features worship, youth sermons, games, small groups, food, and so much more.
Our annual trip away to relax, get away, spend time in fellowship with each other, have fun, play, and most importantly grow in our relationship with Jesus. This retreat happens over fall break (which is why we don’t come back until Monday). Each year we have an engaging speaker and a theme to help us focus on a particular aspect of of our walk with Christ.
Our Biennial retreat that where we discuss God’s good gift of sexuality.
