5th Graders Winter Retreat 

February 3-4. 2018

Scripture verse:  

Matthew 7: 24-25: "Everybody who hears these words and puts them into practice is like a wise builder who built a house on bedrock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the wind blew and beat against the house. It didn't fall because it was firmly set on bedrock." (CEB)

Purpose: The purpose of this retreat is to give children in fifth grade who will be transitioning from elementary school to middle school – from children’s ministry to youth an opportunity explore their faith foundation.

Goals:

Participants will leave the 24 hour experience with:

  • Sense of community
  • Confidence that they are not alone as they encounter the unknowns before them
  • Practical tools to strengthen their faith.
 
Cost:  $98.00/participant
