According to teens over the past three years, the retreat, more than anything else,
is the highlight of the Confirmation Prep Process.
It's an amazing, fun, powerful weekend.

We are in need of adults (both male/female) to make this weekend as fun and safe as it can be. 
You won't be asked to give a talk or lead a small group, but we do need adults to help!

Christmas Trees

We have a tradition of burning Christmas Trees on the retreat. 
There is a safe area to burn them and it's super fun educational (never let a tree get dry). 
If you would be willing to save your Christmas Tree, we'd love to burn it.
