This is NOT a regular Youth Night; please read the description below to determine whether this night is the best fit for your child!

This retreat is for students interested in exploring spiritual disciplines and taking the next step in their discipleship journey. Most of the night will be a mix of structured and unstructured time, engaging in various spiritual discipline stations (with breaks for students as needed). We will then wrap up the night with some reflection and celebration! * Snacks will be provided
