Weekend Schedule:

  • We would love for you to cover this weekend in prayer.  We are believing for not only a fun weekend but real encounter with Jesus and life changes that will empower students to live out the life they were created for and connect with others going through similar struggles and life experiences.
  • Every student will be in their small groups and we have several parent couples helping as work crew and a team of 8 leading worship.  JC Alzamora and Joel Bomberger will be teaching and there will be plenty of time for connection and fun.
