Everyone has been working so hard getting ready for this year’s winter retreat!  There have been students creating and painting to transform our worship area.  Food prep has been going on for weeks and many late nights, I have been the benefactor of tasting everything.  So there’s not much left to do but make sure your ready to attend.  Click on the reminder link below to make sure you understand what is expected to have a great weekend.  And thank you!

Winter Retreat 2016 reminder

“THE KINGDOM” is our 2016 winter retreat theme.  There are only two kingdom’s in which to live, which one are you in?  Both are invisible, but clearly seen.  Both locked in battle, but the war has already been won.  Both have a king, but only one has sacrificed everything, and only one is calling for defectors.  You won’t want to miss this years retreat!  January 22-24, at Michiana which is in Niles, MI.  Cost is $85 per person and is due by January 10th.  We have a one time $75.00 camp scholarship if you’d like to use it. We’ll leave West at 1pm of Friday and return Sunday by 6pm.  Students need to have the West med form.  Also, pack as light as you can, but bring winter clothes. We will be spending some time outside. Bring bedding, pillow, towel, etc., over night stuff.   Leave all electronic stuff home, yes that includes cell phones!  I only ask students do to this on two occasions, Winter Retreat and CIY.  If your not sure what constitutes electronic stuff…I would ask.
