Winter Retreat

The date is set and the cabin is booked! We have reserved a lake cabin on Lake Poinsett for February 10th - 12th. The cost of the trip will be $20 a person which will cover the two nights stay as well as food/travel. The final day to sign up for the retreat is Wednesday February 1st. Your student is more than welcome to invite a friend along with them as we head a little north for a weekend free of the ordinary distractions.

Our retreat is for our 8th grade - 12th grade students. We will leave Friday evening around 6:00 pm and return home Sunday close to noon.

While away, the theme of the weekend will be monsters as we talk about 3 spiritual traps when it comes to our personal relationship with God. We will discuss our relationship with others and how we act while in each group, the separation between our personal faith and faith of those around us, and the trap of using what we do to be our saving grace rather than trusting in the Grace of God.

This weekend is also a great way to step away from distractions of our everyday life and refocus on our relationship with God as the business of school, work, friends, family, sports, activities and so much more are put on hold.
