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!
