Youth Winter Retreat

Youth Winter Retreat

Many teens point back to a retreat like this as a key moment in their faith journey. Why is that? Retreats offer a chance to get away from the busyness of life so we can better focus on our relationship with Jesus and each other.

Pray for our students

  1. Pray that we would have safety in our travel and that the van would be fine for the trip.
  2.  Pray that our students would grow in their friendship with one another.
  3. Pray that the students’ relationship with the Lord would deepen.
  4. Finally, pray that God would use this weekend to further His work through our students here in Greensboro.
