Middle School Retreat
Friday, December 11, 2020, 5:30 PM - Sunday, December 13, 2020, 12:00 PM
Middle School Retreat will take place at New Life Ranch. Students will arrive Friday evening and be back before the church is over on Sunday. Students will experience three worship services (Friday PM, Saturday AM, and Saturday PM). They will also get to enjoy small group times, personal devotions, free time, and late-night events. The main goal for middle school retreat is for students to disconnect from their everyday lives and spend the weekend connecting with God, other students, and adult leaders. Buses will leave the Venue around 6 pm on Friday evening with check-in beginning at 5:15 pm. Students will return to the Venue by noon on Sunday for parents to pick up.
The theme for the retreat this year is "Released." Our main passage of Scripture is Acts 16:16-34 which is the story of Paul and Silas being imprisoned. Paul and Silas were originally thrown in jail for freeing a slave girl from a spirit. Once in prison, Paul and Silas were released miraculously while worshipping God. In the midst of the miraculous release, Paul and Silas are able to stop their guard from killing himself and ultimately leading him to believe in Christ. There's a lot we can learn from this story. At the retreat, we will be talking about the things God is able to release us from, his desire for us as followers of Jesus once we are released, and how we can use the testimony of God's power in our lives to help others come to know him.
The cost is $125 for students who sign up before November 29. On November 29 the price jumps to $150. Adult leaders are free. There will need to be options for people to sign up as a camper or adult. S
