YOUTH RETREAT – Jr. & Sr. High


Jr. & Sr. High Students, our retreats are the best events that we do all year! The retreats provide an opportunity for you to get away from their daily routine and focus on their relationships with God and others. Over the years, many students point back to a youth retreat as a turning point in their relationship with God. In addition to deepening their connection with God, the retreats provide an opportunity to deepen connections with others within the group.

The Jr. High and Sr. High retreats will be held at Heartland Retreat Center in Marengo, Ohio again this year. We will meet at church on Friday, February 28 at 5 PM and return to the church on Sunday, March 1 at 12:15 PM. Each student will need a completed Heartland Consent Form. The cost for the retreat is $95. Payments can be turned in to Pastor Keith or by completing the registration link below. This year students will have the opportunity to participate in the high ropes course at Heartland during free time on Saturday. There will be an additional $15 charge. Registration and payment due by Feb. 16. Questions? Contact Pastor Keith at (614) 460-9271
