Winter Middle School Retreat

Avalanche 2019 - 5th-8th grades

January 26-27, 2019

Early check in on Friday night begins at 7:30pm. Arrival for Saturday morning is 9-10am. Retreat ends at 11:30am on Sunday morning.

Our goal for Avalanche is to create a space for youth leaders to connect with their students without worrying about all the details of planning a retreat. Each day there are opportunities to worship and play together including sledding, playing games, hanging out in the Seagull Cafe, and rock climbing. Over the course of the weekend,there will be three sessions with worship and a message by Caleb Nykamp, former GENEVA summer staff member and current youth pastor at Christ Memorial in Holland.  There will also be an additional worship time on Friday evening for those arriving that night.
