Dear Parents,

WHAT: This is a retreat for high schoolers about being a young Christian in this crazy world.  Young people who have been to this retreat before have a major role in leading it!  I, Pastor Robert, and our previous seminary intern, Katie Hartwell, will be two of the leaders for the retreat.  The “Awakening” retreat is a fantastic opportunity to become stronger, more confident, and grow in who you are as a child of God.  There are talks, small group sessions, fellowship with other high schoolers, and great food!  The Awakening is invitational – with our high schoolers who have gone before inviting other high schoolers to attend.  However, if your high schooler has any interest they are welcome to attend as well.

This is the youth version of the Great Banquet.

WHEN: Friday, Nov. 1 thru Sunday Nov. 3

Depart Friday from Knox @ 3:30 PM

Return Sunday night @ 9 PM

Note: Our Knox Youth Winter Retreat is two weeks after this retreat so please take this into consideration.

WHERE: Camp Lawrence in Valparaiso, Indiana

TRAVEL: Knox rents a 15 passenger van to transport everyone there and back

COST: $30 (CHECKS ONLY – Made out to “Indiana Dunes Awakening”)

DUE: Sunday, October 20 (the sooner the better)

REGISTER: download forms HERE.  Please turn both the Registration & Release form in to Pastor Robert.

P.S.  It is recommended to attend the Awakening sooner than later.  Since there are many talks done by high schoolers, it can be less impactful for seniors – so if you’re considering waiting – I’d recommend attending sooner than later.
