Seventh Grade Retreat - October 23, 2017

We are excited to announce our newly renovated 7th Grade Retreat as our team of faculty and staff came together last year to consider how we might give our seventh-graders the best possible retreat experience. We designed a retreat that includes an off-campus day filled with bowling, lunch, games at a local park, and small groups allowing the students to explore our theme. The theme is best summed up in this old African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.” We believe this saying embodies the communal nature of the Trinity, which God past on to all His children. Jesus reiterated this communal nature by not leaving us with an individualistic faith, but rather a faith built on community, the church. Alone we can only do so much, but when we learn to act in unison, we truly GO FURTHER TOGETHER!

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”

(1 Corinthians 12:27)

The retreat is an off-campus, one-day retreat on Monday, October 23. Students will come to school at the regular time, 8:00am, and return by the end of school at 2:40pm.
