All Youth Retreat

August 27th-29th
We are so excited to bring back the All Youth Retreat this year!
Join more than 150 of your closest friends as we gather together for a weekend of community, worship, and fun learning by  REGISTERING NOW!

This is a unique two-day camp experience that happens annually for students in 6th-12th grade and the All Youth Retreatis a great way to kick off the school year! Each day is packed full with activities like community building, ropes courses, bonfires, lake swimming, basketball, ping pong, worship and interactive learning. 

Our theme for 2021 is "Armor of God" based on Ephesians 6. Our kids will be learning about the struggles of life and how God has equipped us for battle. 

To help cement that vision in the hearts of our kids we have two incredible leaders joining our Concordia family for this weekend. Pastor Leon Jameson is a nationally-known youth ministry speaker who has delighted tens of thousands of kids and adults through his stories, Bible teaching and powerful application challenges. From the National Youth Gathering mainstage to Camp Arcadia teen weeks, Pastor Leon brings wit, wisdom and insight that our teens will never forget.  

And each grade level will be focusing their learning more specifically in the following areas: 

 

  • 6th Grade (with parent):God Is … -- Introduction to Confirmation and Following Jesus 

6th Grade Parent Registration

  • 7th Grade: God’s Masterpiece -- Learning to cherish the person God made you to be. 
  • 8th Grade:Changes and Choices – Discussing sexuality from a faith-based perspective  
  • 9th Grade:Bridge to Commitment – mandatory to prepare for the Rite of Confirmation this October 
  • 10/11th Grade:Love is – Building on the topic of sexuality from the 8th grade retreat and moving in to other topics that require our kids to make big choices that they’re starting to stare down like, post-high school life, media and entertainment, politics, independence from parents, driving... 
  • 12th Grade:Moving On – Facing the end-of-high-school transition with a firm foundation  

Though each grade level will have specific learning subjects/activities set aside just for them, the entire group will travel, worship and eat meals together.

Invite Nights

We all need a little fun in our lives. One Friday each month we host a different event, so you can let loose and start your weekend in a Christian environment surrounded by your friends. We call it invite night because we want you to invite your friends, even if they don't go to Concordia or to church at all. It's a great way to share God's love and introduce them to Concordia.

Sunday Resets 6:30-8:30pm

This school year is different. It’s that much more important to find time to reset your heart and mind towards God. Sunday Resets gives you a chance to BE STILL and come to God with your struggles; BE ONE with friends and a community of believers through a Bible study and games; and BE FAITHFUL by using what you’ve learned to share God’s love with others.

What We're Studying
Do you have questions about your faith? Would you know how to respond if someone asked you questions about what you believe and why? 
We're studying and answering questions many people have about faith and how to respond to people who ask you questions about your faith. Each week we will take a quick look at questions you and others might have about the Bible and your faith.
