WHAT is the Awakening: The Awakening is a weekend 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, will be a leader at this 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. High schoolers who know they want to go can fill out the application and then hand the app into Pastor Robert.
This is the youth version of the Great Banquet.
WHEN is the Awakening: Friday, Nov. 4 thru Sunday Nov. 6
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 that 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 16 (the sooner the better)
REGISTER: download forms HERE. Please turn both the Registration & Release form in to Pastor Robert (make sure to complete both pages!).
P.S. It is recommended to attend the Awakening sooner than later. Since there are many talks done by high schoolers, it is usually more impactful to a freshmen than a senior. Also, you never know what obligations may come up the same weekend as the Awakening next year. So, if you’re considering waiting – I’d recommend going this year if possible.
