Middle School Fall Presbytery Retreat 

Created to Connect! A weekend of recreation, singing, energizers and learning about how we are created to connect with God, with ourselves and with others.

Last year we explored how we are “created to belong” and this year we will expand on how we are all created to connect- to God, to each other, and to ourselves. It will be a weekend full of fun, music, energizers, recreation and enjoying time together as the body of Christ in God’s beautiful creation at the Calvin Center. Middle Schoolers will get a chance to explore the theme in a variety of ways including through workshop time.

Sample of potential workshops:

  •  Spirituality center with crafts and activities that connect us to God
  •  Improv to help us connect with ourselves and others
  • Breadmaking to prepare for communion
  • Canoeing to connect with our Creator
  • Music to connect with one another in song
  • Fun Group-building games to connect with one another
  • Faith and Technology-Connecting with the World
