For our registered 6-9th graders the Refuge weekend is finally here! We are so excited to be taking 70 youth and adults (our largest group ever!) to Shepherd of the Ozarks for a weekend of fun and worship. For many of our youth, Refuge is not only a blast, but it’s one of the most spiritually formative experiences. We will leave at 5:30pm from the Upper Parking deck of PHUMC (eat before you come-we will not eat at SOTO that evening) and will return around 1pm on Sunday afternoon to the same spot.
Sunday night, November 8th, during our normal phyouth gathering time (5:30-7:15) will be our first ever 9th-12th grade ONLY youth night! While we let our middle schoolers rest and get homework finished for the following week, Jay and I will be worshipping with our older youth. We are going to be talking about Expectations! You don’t want to miss this experience!
