MOVE THAT BUS!
Help our students get to the SpringHill Retreat!
The student ministry will be taking their annual Winter Retreat to SpringHill Camp the weekend of January 12-14, 2018. This retreat has proved impacting to students as the messages and events help draw them closer to Christ and each other. This year we are reaching out to the congregation to help us with transportation costs. Our goal is to keep the cost to attend down so more students can afford to attend. If you would like to donate to the retreat, please mark the OTHER line on your envelope with STUDENT RETREAT and the amount you wish to donate. If donating online, please use the STUDENT MINISTRY FUND option. Know that the students appreciate your investment in them!
