Winter Retreat

Let’s face it, winter in Minnesota is COLD! We do our best to beat the winter blues by heading to a camp for some wintertime enjoyment! This retreat is hosted by our senior class, which means they will run games, lead worship, share testimonies, and be the primary speakers for the weekend. You can bet that the weekend will not be one you want to miss out on! Our primary tradition at this retreat is the annual Lip Sync Competition! This is open to anyone who wants to compete, so start putting a group together and rehearsing your choreography, the retreat will be here before you know it!

Foundations

The Student Ministries' vision is to bring, stir, equip, and send students. Part of our strategy for accomplishing our vision is by offering Foundations for senior students. Foundations can be broken into three parts: monthly Sunday meetings, involvement in NXT, and the concluding trip to Israel (optional for all students who complete Foundations).

Notes:

  • Foundations begins October 3, 2021, for the class of 2022!
