Our annual Summer Youth Retreat will be Saturday, August 3rd through Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 in Ocean City, New Jersey. Students entering 7th through 12th grade are welcome! Friends are welcome too!
The retreat is designed to be a well-chaperoned time of friendship, fun and learning. This year’s summer youth retreat will be at Kull Youth Center in Ocean City, New Jersey. There will be daily small group bible studies (no prior knowledge needed), nightly programs, and lots of time at the beach and boardwalk.
Retreat Theme: Love Story
Love. It makes the world go ‘round. We can’t help falling into it, and it’s all we need. However, over the years we have come up with so many different definitions of love and what it looks like. In one sense it seems so readily available, yet at the same time it can feel like the love we need remains elusive. What is love? What does it look like? How do you know when you’ve received it, and what does it look like to live out a life of love? Join us at Ocean City as we dig into the story of God’s love for humanity and His clear picture of the nature and transformative power of love.
We will be departing from the McDonalds in West Lebanon at 7 am on Saturday, August 3rd and returning on Wednesday, August 7th between 6 and 8 pm (depending on traffic).
