High School Guys Interested in the Men's Retreat?

Many of you just got back from breakaway, where we explored what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. No matter how old you get, it is always important to keep following Jesus. In a couple weekends, men from church will have a retreat to spend time learning what it means to be a man of God. As high schoolers, people often treat you like a kid when you want to be treated like an adult. This retreat is an opportunity to be treated like an adult while learning how to become the man God has made you to be.

- when: March 24-26 (options to do Saturday to Sunday or Sunday only) cost varies by how many nights you stay
