In a few short months, school will be out, and summer will be here! Our Youth Family summer calendar provides lots of opportunities to connect or maybe reconnect with your church family through Bible studies, mission opportunities, lunch clubs and retreats.
Remember, retreats allow students to grow in their faith, strengthen relationships with their friends and peers within the youth group, and develop a deeper sense of who they are as Christ followers.
