Youth Ministry Retreats
Each school year we encourage students to participate in our annual retreats. During the fall we attend the Nexus retreat with other United Methodist churches from the Chattanooga area. Then in January we attend Resurrection, which is put together by the Holston Conference in Pigeon Forge, TN. Below you will find information about both retreats. We hope you'll join us!

Nexus Retreat is an awesome weekend spent worshipping, learning, laughing, and growing closer to God.

This covers 5 meals for the weekend, all lodging, materials, and a t-shirt. Students should sign up early because space is limited. A $35 deposit is required to reserve their spot.
