If you're in high school, Fall Getaway is about to become the highlight of your Fall semester. At Student Ministries, we know the start of a school year can get kinda crazy, so we wanted to create a place for you to be able to retreat from all that noise and busyness. We take a look at what it means to truly rest and how practicing spiritual disciplines can help you to take next steps with Jesus. It's our hope that you will be encouraged, re-energized, and that you'll have a lot of fun, meaningful memories!
We're living in a culture that wears busyness as a badge of honor. The more extracurricular activities you can juggle, the better. The more you can accomplish in 24hrs, the better. The more "hustle" you can give, the better. But, what if God desires more for you than to be burnt out, hurtling through life, stressing about how to fit everything in? We believe He does. He desires you to rest and be restored, to abide in His strength, to be still and silent with Him. At Fall Getaway 2018 we're going to unpack this more and talk about some practical ways that we can slow down, find God in the everyday, and live intentionally.
Fall Getaway is all about a laid back, restful experience, but we still have a lot of crazy fun. Some things you can expect:
- Cozy hangout spaces
- Campfires + S'mores
- Acoustic worship sets
- Intentional small group time
- Silly stage games
- Cardgame tournaments
- Personal devotionals
- Coffee + hot chocolate
- A mechanical bull (yes, really.)
Fall Getaway 2017 was all about living our lives wholly committed and all-in for Christ. We had a lot of fun and feel encouraged to continue pursuing our faith and relationship with God in every way! Check out this recap to see everything we got up to.
