Winter retreat

Who: All 6th-12th grade

What: An amazing weekend of discovering more about God, yourself, and one another. Awesome winter games (pray for snow!!), tasty food and snacks, and a great study from God's word. 

Speaker: Tim Ramseier. Director of Youth For Christ and supported by WGC.

Theme: Vision 2020. Tim will take us through the book of Daniel and help us see how worthwhile it is to live for Christ in a world that doesn't. We will take some time for discussion and reflecting in small groups.

When: January 2-4, 2020

Meet at WGC at 9:00am on Thursday

Return by 10:00pm Saturday

Where: Bair Lake Bible Camp, Jones, Michigan

Why: To engage with God and one another. To see more fully that God is the most important thing in life. To have fun and grow together, being that much more ready for the hard times in life. To celebrate, to relax, and as God allows, to have a blast in the snow!

Cost: $115

Includes a sweet t-shirt, every meal (and some snacks) except for your first lunch on the bus (yes, a Turner bus will get us there and back--the safest way to travel).
