A Fall Retreat Unlike Any Other!

This year, September 25-26 our Fall Retreat is spreading all across the city, as students gather in host homes for a jam packed 2 day retreat experience unlike any other. Friday night students start scattered in host homes for session one, small group time and tye dye, then gather at the church for Kansas City's Largest 143’ glow in the dark obstacle course! Session two begins Saturday morning in host homes with small groups before heading out in the afternoon for a city wide scavenger hunt. The retreat concludes Saturday night with all you can eat Chris Cakes Pancakes and an outdoor worship experience under the stars.

This Year's Theme

In the last moments of Jesus’ ministry on Earth, he said something that is extremely shocking: that it is for our good that he should go away. He follows this shocking statement with encouragement and hope – that once he leaves he will send an advocate to speak on our behalf. That advocate is the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity. He holds the same power of God the Father and the same promise of Jesus the Son. He lives in us and works through us and keeps us connected to one another. The Holy Spirit guides and provides … and the fruits of that labor are wide-reaching and eternal. This year’s content will feature phenomenal teaching and worship from the CIY Move summer camp exploring the Third Person of the Trinity – who he is, how he works, and the many ways high school students can lean in and stay connected to him every moment of their lives.
