Middle School Retreat

“Created to Belong”

November 2-4, 2018

Last year we explored how we are “created to create” and this year we will expand on how we are all created to belong- to God, to each other, to the world and to the earth.
It will be a weekend full of fun, music, energizers, recreation and enjoying time together as the body of Christ in God’s beautiful creation at the Calvin Center. Middle Schoolers will get a chance to explore the theme in a variety of ways including through workshop times. Sample of potential workshops:
  • Spirituality center with crafts and activities that connect us to God
  • Exploring the Calvin center’s “Global Village” and how we belong to all the people of the world 
  • Belonging to each other: Team Challenge Games/Low Ropes Course
  • Caring for creation and enjoying the earth to which we belong 
  • Song Writing 
  • We all belong at the table: Bread Making & Cooking

    When: Nov. 2-4th

    For all 6th-8th grade

    Retreat will begin with check-in at 7:00 pm Friday, Nov. 2

    Retreat will end around 10:00 am after worship on Sunday, Nov. 4
