YOUNG ADULT WINTER RETREAT: Greetings from the Young Adult Winter Retreat Team! We are a team of young adults from across Ontario passionate about Jesus and seeing young adults grow in their faith and relationships with others. We host an annual winter weekend retreat for young adults ages 18-30(ish).
It is a weekend full of spiritual encouragement, faith-based discussions, service, fellowship, and funtivities! We invite a speaker (this year, our main speaker is Darren Roorda, Director of Canadian Ministries for the CRC) and worship leader(s) to guide us in our sessions. There are opportunities to volunteer at various local organizations, quietly reflect on the weekend’s theme, participate in a prayer walk, and further engage the theme through workshops. This is a high energy weekend with great food and the option to sleep.
This retreat began in 2013 with approximately 15 attendees. Since then it has grown and we welcomed 98 young adults to the 2018 retreat! Maranatha CRC in Woodstock has been our gracious host and we have had a wonderful assortment of teachers and worship leaders over these years. We are excited about the future of this retreat and its impact on young adults of our generation! Please join us in prayer for the planning of our 7th annual retreat and those who will be attending this coming January 25-27, 2019 D.V.
Registration for the entire weekend is only $60 (food and a place to sleep at the church included!) on or before the Early Bird registration date of January 10th! After that, registration will be $70/person.
