Trips and Events

Friendship Students have numerous opportunities to connect with God and serve others outside of their normal weekly meetings.

Students participate in M-Fuge put on by Lifeway Camps http://www2.lifeway.com/fuge/index.php?intcmp=fuge-head-nav-home-head-pg-MFugeCamp focuses on mission opportunities through organized mission projects in participation with church youth groups from across the country. Developing a heart for serving others as well as interaction with peers to accomplish a mission are just two of the valuable lessons gleaned from the camp experience.

 

Retreats

Two major annual retreats give students a time to unplug from the tech world. Leaving their computers, phones, and all other tech devices behind students enter into a time of deliberate focus on Bible study, worship, and fellowship within the youth group.

 

DNOW Weekend: In Early March
Students stay in the homes of church members in small groups by age and gender. These small groups have a deliberate focus on Bible study and Christian character development. All students come together for worship and large group Bible study.

Winter Retreat: After Christmas
Students travel to a retreat site to experience group Bible study as well as individual times of reflection. Corporate Bible study and praise and worship are also included as students learn to apply Biblical principles to everyday situations.
