WATCH TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT
 
LABOR DAY WEEKEND

September 2nd-5th, 2022

The Weekend is an annual gathering of people from different generations, locations, and vocations. We come together to learn from one another and to encounter the person of Jesus through story, friendship, and community.

 

Who is The Weekend for?  It's for you!  This is a great opportunity to experience as a family or with a group of friends, neighbors or colleagues. If you come without knowing anyone, you will leave with new friends!

What you can expect:

  • Tools to help center your life on the teachings of  Jesus.

  • Everyone is welcome. This is a multigenerational, community experience.

  • Fun activities such as a zip line, swimming pool, go-karts, basketball courts, frisbee golf, and much more!

  • Building friendships in a variety of context.

  • Morning and evening sessions, with plenty of free time in between (see basic schedule below).

  • Small groups for teens and adults.

  • Kids' Club is available for kids ages 3+ (details are below).
