Youth Retreats

Retreats 

Our whole goal is to help you embrace the adventure of discipleship. To know, love and serve the Lord. We encourage you to go on retreats, experiences, etc. to grow in faith by hands-on experiences! The Lord invites us to 'come away' and to 'rest awhile' to get to know Him on a deeper level, to make our faith come alive (Mark 6:31). Retreats are a great way to do just that. We know this can come at a cost....

Scholarships

Each student has an annual stipend of $300 for the year to use for retreat experiences. Per experience, the cluster will cover up to half of the expense. If you’re unsure of your balance, just ask! If the retreat you want to attend isn’t listed, just reach out!
