We can't wait to get away for The Pause on November 17-19!!!

Jesus teaches us that hitting pause in the midst of our busy lives is crucial to staying connected with God. Our time together will focus on worship and studying the Word, intentional time with the Lord, equipping students to live and proclaim the gospel, and building community in the midst of some beautiful surroundings. We will also have some small group competitions that are sure to be a great time on Saturday. HS students, we invite you to press pause this weekend and join us for our HS Fall Retreat. Also, be sure to check out the highlight videos below.  


Arrive at Carmel on Friday at 6:00pm (eat before you arrive), and return at 3:00pm on Sunday. All meals included with cafeteria style meals. Please provide bedding for twin size bed. Bunkbed type accommodations.
