A weekend for young adults looking to unplug from the complexities of city life. 

We want to get out to a place of retreat and into the outdoors to search our busy souls and restore a clear view of the things that really matter. 

Start the year off right: reconnect with Christ, reconnect with community.

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full…” (Jesus in John 10:10)

Why bring in a guest speaker and worship team? First, we want those who are constantly serving in these areas to have a break, to unplug, to be recharged. Second, these guests are some of the greatest, most down-to-earth people around and have been doing what they do for decades! They are coming back for our second UNPLUG Retreat and are excited to help us connect with Christ and each other!
