Youth Retreats

Fall Retreat:  The Fall Retreat is our annual fall weekend away for the entire youth group.  During the weekend students participate in fellowship activities as well as dynamic worship and prayer experiences.  The Fall Retreat is a great way for new members of the youth group to meet new friends.

Disciple Now Weekend:  Disciple Now, or D-Now as the youth often call it, is a weekend spiritual retreat for the whole youth group.  It is led by college and seminary students and contains a mission project for our whole group.  During the Disciple Now Weekend, youth spend the night in homes of members of our congregation and lead worship for both services on Sunday Morning.

Middle School All-Nighter:  The Middle School All-Nighter is an all-night retreat for our 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students.  It includes fun side trips such as bowling, go-carts, or roller skating, as well as group games, worship, and devotions in the Fellowship Hall.  The Middle School All-Nighter is a great way for our middle school students to bond and share their faith with one another.

9th and 10th Grade Rafting Retreat:  The 9th and 10th Grade Rafting Retreat occurs each fall and includes rafting, cabin accommodations, and the youth’s choice between horseback riding, paintball, and other activities.  The retreat also includes worship around the campfire as well as daily Bible-based devotions.

Junior/Senior Ski and Snowboard Retreat:  The Junior/Senior Ski and Snowboard Retreat occurs once a year. The youth stay in a home near the ski resort where they share meals and participate in daily worship and devotions together.

6th Grade Mini-Retreat:  In August, our rising 6th grade students are invited to take part in a mini-retreat (Friday – Saturday) that helps welcome them into the student ministry.  Along with games and fellowship, students engage in Bible study, worship, and build relationships with some of the older youth who lead as mentors.
