Our annual Student Ministries Retreat is back! We want to see students' lives changed when they encounter God in a brand new way. This February, Jr.High and Sr.High Students (Grades 5-12) from our church and Embassy Church (Oshawa, ON), will be going up to Muskoka Bible Centre for our annual retreat! This 3-day Retreat will challenge students to unwind, disconnect and get real with God. Winter Retreat is a life-changing, out-of-town event for middle and high school students to encounter the presence of God in a powerful way. Your student will experience worship services, small group time, and recreation time all throughout the weekend. They will stay overnight at Muskoka Bible Camp in Huntsville, ON. This year, our theme for the Retreat is Stories! Where we will be diving into the power of the stories in the Bible and how they impact our lives. We will also dive into our stories and how God is developing a story and a testimony in our lives today. Spots are limited so please ensure you read through, ask questions and sign up ASAP!
