These weekends offer youth (and their leaders) an opportunity to explore aspects of contemporary discipleship. What does God require of us? The prophet says this, "He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8, Common English Bible).
Through activities and engagement, in worship and community, youth in Grades 7-9 will discover more about walking with God. They will explore what matters through the six core themes of the United Church of Christ and explore the values and insights that offer guidance to those who seek faithful love and justice in today’s communities.
The CT Conference sponsors four weekends each program year, hosted in God’s backyard at Silver Lake Conference Center. If the youth in your congregation would benefit from a retreat experience as they prepare for the rite of Confirmation, consider joining us. Each retreat includes youth and church leaders from across our state. Each retreat is staffed by a team of two leaders trained to guide youth and their advisors throughout the retreat.
Some things to keep in mind:
