Junior/Senior Retreat

About the Junior/Senior Retreat

Every year in the fall, we take our high school juniors and seniors on a one-night getaway to the mountains. We stay at a hotel in the mountians and relax, shop, drink coffee, and take time to build up and encourage the oldest students in our ministry.
