Middle School Fall Retreat
MESSY Retreat | November 2-4 | Camp JIM

Click here to register!
Every once in a while we do a messy retreat. This is a retreat where we will head to Camp JIM (Jesus Is Mine) near Brainerd and GET MESSY! Friday night we will stay up late doing crazy and messy games (bring old clothes) and the rest of the weekend we will be looking at Philippians 4:13 "I can do all this through him who gives me strength" (NIV) and talking about how we can survive the messes that life throws at us. Life is messy. Mess is unavoidable. How can we build a faith that THRIVES in the mess of life instead of merely looking to survive it.
