High School Winter Retreat

High School Winter Retreat in Durango Colorado

MLK Weekend

January 18-21, 2019

Registration Coming in the fall

From LCDC, we’ll take a charter bus to Durango, Colorado and will stay at Christ the King Lutheran Church, which will be our home base for food, sleep, worship, messages & small groups. During the days we’ll hit up Durango Mountain Resort for skiing /snowboarding or the resort life lounges, shops, and activities for non skiers/boarders. There’s even a sledding hill right next to the church we’re staying at!!! Plus, we’ll enjoy an unforgettable ride on the Durango Silverton train through a winter wonderland. In the evenings, we will have beautiful moments of worship, messages, and small groups to be refreshed and renewed by the amazing God who loves us!
