BreakThru: December 30, 2019-January 2, 2020

This winter spiritual retreat takes place at Timber Creek Camp in Pulaski, MS. Students spend four days surrounded by God’s creation, new and old friends and caring adult leaders, allowing them the opportunity to connect or reconnect with our Creator. This retreat is for all 7th-12th grade students. 

The retreat includes teaching, worship, small groups, hiking, canoeing, a ropes course, games, meals and fellowship. This is an awesome opportunity for you to be recharged and refreshed in your faith!

Youth Encounter Weekend (YEW): Lock-In Edition

In 2019, we combined our in-town Youth Encounter Weekend retreat with a lock-in from Friday evening until Saturday morning. Students participated in exciting activities around Memphis along with late night worship, teaching, a junk food bar and fun games.

Service Over Self (SOS)


Each summer our students serve in the inner city doing urban home repair—mostly roofing—for homeowners in Binghampton. It is a week where they learn a great deal about being the hands and feet of Christ, and we hope God uses it as a launching point for living a lifestyle of service.
