First Annual Augustana District High School Retreat

High School is a time for stretching, growing, and learning more about who you are in the world and who you want to be. It can also be a time of tremendous pressure to figure out what you want to do and where you want to go next. This can all be overwhelming, especially when all those big decisions are piled on top of homework, extracurriculars, and family responsibilities. During this weekend retreat, we will take some time to relax and have fun, while also talking and learning together about how to sort out all the things life throws our way. God has a calling for each of his chosen ones. Listening for His voice isn’t easy in our noisy world. But when we know how to listen, God’s voice rings through.

The retreat gives us the chance to get away from our regular patterns to grow closer to God and each other.

Confirmation is a lot of work and time. We understand that. It also lays a foundation for your life in faith, there aren’t many times where you can do this. We hope to supply you with resources, knowledge, and friendships in the church to help you on your journey. This retreat is one valuable method to do this.
