Middle School Retreat

Event details

  • Friday | November 1, 2019 to Sunday | November 3, 2019
  • All Day


Last year we explored how we are “created to belong” and this year we will expand on how we are all created to connect- to God, to each other, and to ourselves. It will be a weekend full of fun, music, energizers, recreation and enjoying time together as the body of Christ in God’s beautiful creation at the Calvin Center. Middle Schoolers will get a chance to explore the theme in a variety of ways including through workshop time.

WE WILL REGISTER AS A GROUP! Please let Pastor Alex know if you are attending.

  • Spirituality center with crafts and activities that connect us to God
