Fall Retreat - 2021

October 15th - 17th, 2021
T-Bar M Camp in Spicewood, TX
God, games, competitions, worship, and more!
Fall retreat is a weekend get away with our Middle School and High School Students together where we connect with God and one another.  As can be expected we will enjoy competitions, games, worship, discussion groups, and all the fun we can handle as we lead your students to meeting, knowing, and following Jesus.  Every morning and evening will include teaching and worship, small group discussions, and quiet time for personal relationship time with the Lord.

Lucas' Vision for Fall Retreat 2021

We love getting students together to connect with one another, their leaders, and ultimately with Christ. Discipleship happens in relationships. We also know that many students are busy over the summer and don’t connect as much as they would like with the Student Ministry. That is why we always plan a weekend retreat designed specifically for both middle and high school students to help us all re-engage and connect students to many different relationships. We value our leaders and their commitment to pointing your sons and daughters to Christ as well.

This weekend retreat is especially beneficial for those who are new to our ministry. It gets them away with the small group leaders and helps them to connect and to get to know others which helps the groups to seek after Christ in unity and community more deeply. This is also a great opportunity for your student to invite that friend they’ve been thinking about as it gives the newcomer a great opportunity to truly connect with fellow students and our leaders.

Parents, we value you so much and are so grateful for you all and your willingness to share your students with us!
