Fall Retreat 2018

This fall the student ministry of Church at the Cross will be traveling to Mt. Lebanon Baptist Encampment in Cedar Hill, Texas for our annual retreat. The life of the average teenager is incredibly busy. There are thousands of different things, from a million different directions, calling for their attention and devotion. We want to hit this epidemic head on and provide a time away for teenagers to spend an intentional time communing with God and with hanging out with their friends. Between the hiking and worship, chilling in a hammock and s'mores, Fall Retreat is sure to be the best weekend of your entire fall season. Bring a friend. See you there!

Mark your calendar for our Fall Retreat Parent Meeting?

We will have a Fall Retreat 2018 Parent Meeting on Sunday (14th) at 12:15pm in the Student Center. This brief meeting will serve to provide you with the final details you need to send your student on the the Fall Retreat. Please make every effort to have a parent/guardian in attendance. If you have any questions beforehand, please feel free to contact James Sercey, at james@churchatthecross.com. 

What if my teenager can only attend a portion of the Fall Retreat?

Not a problem at all! All we ask is that a parent attends the Parent Meeting (see above) and fills out at “Time Away” card. This will ensure that the student ministry team and the parent(s) are on the same page regarding when exactly we can expect to have your teenager at the Fall Retreat. If you have any questions about how your teenagers time away may effect his or her total cost, please do not hesitate emailing James Sercey, at james@churchatthecross.com.
