This years Junior High Fall Retreat will be at SpringHill Retreat Center in Plano, Tx. We will meet at the church Friday Evening at 5pm to depart for the retreat. We will return to the church by noon on Sunday morning the 16th. . This is a great opportunity for your student to get away and study the bible. This year we will be looking at Jesus and influence and how we can use our influence to positively impact the world for God. We will focus on how your students influence is impacted by how their lives do or don’t match up with their faith; that real influence comes when they put other’s needs before their own; and the ultimate use of their influence is leading others to Christ. It is going to be a great retreat, don’t let your student miss out!
