Junior High Winter Retreat


THEME: “The Good Good Gospel”

Developing friendships in Junior High is a good thing. Bon fires and star gazing are good things. Playing capture the flag in the forest is a good thing. Jesus advancing the Kingdom of God is the greatest good thing there is, and you’re invited to be part of it! Through worship, small groups, skits and messages, we will grow in our understanding of why the Gospel of Jesus Christ is so good!
