DEVOTED WINTER RETREAT (Middle School)
Devoted Winter Retreat is the perfect weekend get-away for 7th-8th grade students. It is designed for them to have an experience, which they'll be telling stories about all year! This year our theme is COME AS YOU ARE. We believe that no matter who you are or where you've been, God sees you just as you are and loves you too much too leave you the same. We are believing through the entire retreat experience from finding community in small groups to competing in retreat activities, students will discover more of who they are as they see more of who God is!
