THE FOCUS: We all have a tendency to judge people by what we see on the surface. Part of Jesus’ appeal was his ability to look beyond the circumstances of a moment and discern matters of the heart.
At Encounter, we'll learn to look beyond circumstances to spot the need and hunger in ourselves and in other people. There is good news - gospel news - to be shared and the offer of new life. Let's go beneath the surface to show God and others who we truly are...in Him!
Encounter is a weekend retreat designed for 6th - 12th grade students where everyone will ENCOUNTER God, and each in a very unique way. This retreat will offer passionate worship, relevant Bible study and a meaningful time with other teens at Epworth By The Sea on St. Simons Island.
