Every fall, we embark on a retreat where youth come together for a weekend of devotion and fellowship. Generally we travel to the beautiful North Carolina mountains. Trip events have included hiking to Catawba Falls, rock hopping, hiking Lookout Mountain, and climbing a high ropes course. Youth members and friends are welcome to attend! All youth grades 6th-12th are invited to join us. Friends are welcome.
