A time for our students to get away and focus on Jesus...
Fall Retreat is an opportunity for our students to reconnect and recharge with Jesus, other students (from Kingdom and other EMC churches), and trained ministry leaders. This year's theme is still being determined, but we know that our students will be drawn closer to Jesus as a result of attending this retreat.
Cost = $120
(Discount on cost for registering siblings is $20 per student)
