Each of you will receive a handbook that includes the schedule for the week, lesson outlines, devotions, etc. Parents: In an attempt to restrict the amount of distractions during this year’s discipleship retreat, we ask that you remain understanding when trying to reach your child via phone (or any other method of digital communication). Please limit your contact to the times we have provided (free time, etc.) your child to use their phones. You can find a schedule of events for the week here: Schedule
