Rooted Retreat

Rooted is our pastor/student apologetics retreat that began in 2012.  Pastor Wyman leads us through different aspects of apologetics as he gives us tools to defend our faith.  This is a weekend our students look forward to each year.  Location changes from year to year, but you can count on bonfires, great food, and great worship.

Rooted 2022 will be January 7-9, at Spring Lake Camp in Lonsdale, AR.

Elevate MidWeek Series

We want students to hear God’s word through biblical teaching, understand how to apply it through intentional conversations, practice living it out through discipleship and missions, so that they would graduate from our student ministry owning their faith with the confidence of Christ.
