WHAT IS ELEVATE?

It is a weekend retreat for junior high school students. Elevate offers the chance to escape from the regular routine of life for focused attention on Jesus through Bible study, worship, small groups, and fun! 

WHAT IS THE THEME? 

The theme for this weekend is "Honor and Obey." Our Friday night session and Saturday morning session focuses on why you should honor and obey your parents and practical ways to live that out. Our heart behind this weekend is to teach students how honoring their parents truly honors the Lord.
