Upcoming Youth Events
Encounter Youth Retreat
November 22nd - 24th | Epworth by the Sea
We all have a tendency to judge people by what we see on the surface, but Jesus teaches us to look beyond the circumstances of a moment and discern matters of the heart. At Encounter, we'll learn to look beyond circumstances to spot the need and hunger in ourselves and in other people. There is good news - gospel news - to be shared and the offer of new life. Let's go beneath the surface to show God and others who we truly are in Him! Encounter costs $150 and is a weekend retreat designed for 6th - 12th grade students to ENCOUNTER God, and each in a very unique way. This retreat will offer passionate worship, relevant Bible study and a meaningful time with other teens at Epworth By The Sea on St. Simons Island.
Sunday, November 3rd | 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This event is offered to the community and filled with fun things to do for all ages. We will have festival favorites like cotton candy, hay rides, inflatables, a petting zoo, carnival booths, and more - all at no cost! Food trucks will be available if you'd like to purchase something to eat. Mark your calendars and get ready for a fantastic, fall afternoon!
Family Movie Night
Friday, November 15th | 6:00 pm & 8:00 pm
