Depart: Friday 6pm, Return Sunday 4pm // $20 per person

All High school youth are invited to attend our annual retreat at Camp Luther. This year our topic will be “Connectivity & Connections.” We live in a time of profound communication technologies, so with our connectivity so high, why do most experts agree that we’re actually making fewer connections than previous generations? We’ll discuss what it means to make meaningful connections with others, why it’s so important that we do, and the obstacles that prevent those connections. Most importantly we’ll learn what God’s Word has to say to us. PLEASE RSVP TO JOSH ASAP
