2018 Fall REtreat

Each year, the student ministry takes a Fall Retreat to provide students with an opportunity to escape from the pressures that routine life can bring, to allow for an intentional time of Worship, Fellowship, and the truths of God's Word to penetrate the hearts of our students. This year the youth group will be going to Doe River Gorge on October 5-7 as we look to what it means and how to live the Christian life and live it for the long haul. Cost is $150.
