Discovery 2019

AUGUST 9TH - 11TH


Discovery is a spiritual retreat for 6th, 7th and 8th graders (2019-20) providing an opportunity not only to learn about but also to experience the love of God.  Discovery weekend is led by our high school students each year as they build relationships that will last a lifetime. This year, the theme for the annual Discovery weekend is PERMANENT. Our lessons will focus on making marks that can’t be erased. The four main parts we will study are the cross, the covenant, the calling, and our commitment to Christ.


Students will enjoy worship services led by the FOOMACK worship band. The weekend will be packed with games, small groups, prayer, a service for parents and reflection times.
