2023 Confirmation Retreat

The Augustana District will provide its annual Confirmation Retreat Friday, March 3, until noon on Sunday, March 5, 2023. The retreat will be held at Luther Crest Bible Camp in Alexandria, Minnesota.

Meant to augment confirmation instruction in our local churches, the retreat will also offer the opportunity for our youth to experience fellowship with youth from other churches. The retreat is open to any LCMC and NALC congregation.

There will, of course, also be plenty of opportunities for fun, recreation, worship, and fellowship to accompany the learning sessions. The retreat is being planned and led by pastors and leaders of the Augustana District.
