IMPACT Spring Retreat – May 10-12, 2019

6th-12th Grade Students

Life is an amazing journey. However we all know that along with the best parts of life come some incredibly challenging moments. How we respond to the good and the bad moments in life have the potential to determine not only where we end up but who we will become. Jesus has shown us how we can live victorious in every aspect of life. He did the hard part through his sacrifice on the cross. Now he calls us to follow him and to be more like him in the way that we live. Determined. Fierce. Uncompromising. Unstoppable. Relentless.

If you register by the end of February, the fee is $100 or $90 if you have multiple students. The fee after that goes up to $120 (individual) or $110 (multiple students).

Sunday Classes

IMPACT 101 is our Sunday morning class for 6-12th grade students at 9:00 and 10:30am. This year our youth ministries are going through the major stories of the Bible in one year. A typical Sunday morning begins with student led worship followed by large group teaching and small group discussion groups.

IMPACT 201 is geared for 9-12th grade students and is only offered at 9:00 on Sunday mornings. Students start the morning in the Youth Room for worship and then move to the classroom in the hallway. Contact [email protected] for more information about IMPACT 201.

Wednesday Evening

Wednesday Night IMPACT 6:30-8:00pm is for 6-12th graders. The evening begins with large group games and student led worship. Following this middle school and high school students split into two groups for large group teaching and end the evening in small groups.

IMPACT 4:12 8:00-8:30pm is for all interested 6-12th grade students. This group meets weekly immediately following Wednesday evening IMPACT. Members of IMPACT 4:12 contribute to the planning of weekly programs and special events throughout the year and serving on the worship team, welcome team, set up team, and other aspects of the youth ministry.
