Teen Retreat/Mission Trip 2009

Battle Creek!!

Below you will find the first few documents you will need for the teen retreat this July 26th - 31st. The documents are due June 7th 2009 (Anniversary Sunday). The total price for the Teen Retreat/Mission Trip will be $150. The first $40 dollars of that amount will be the non-refundable deposit which will be due on June 7th as well (this $40 cannont be raised through the fundraisers). Just like last year we will have multiple fundraisers to help students raise their money throughout May June and July. The final payment will be due on July 19th.

Please utilize this blog for all of your questions. This is a tool to make the process easier for you as well as for the Youth Team. I look forward to hearing from you.

Clues for Teen Retreat 2009

Last year we had about two months of clues leading up to the revealing of the location of the retreat...this year we will not have that much time. In fact, the location is going to be revealed this Sunday. So instead of giving clues one at a time, I decided to post as many clues as I could at one time so that you could get the answer before Sunday. Remember there is a half price trip riding on this, so the first person to comment on this below with the right answer will win the trip (this means do not call me, or send me an email me, just comment below). I look forward to your answers.

  • In the Midwest
  • There is a Free Will Baptist Church planter in the city (check here)
  • The city is the best known city of its size in the world.
  • The city got its name because of a skirmish between a land surveyor and two Indians
  • The town was originally known as Milton
  • Training Ground for US soldiers in WWI and WWII
  • POW internment camp for Germans during WWII
  • 3rd largest city in its state
  • First city in America to install wheel chair ramps in sidewalks.

That does it, you should be able to get the answer from these clues. Good hunting!!!

Teen Retreat 2009

Teens, and Parents:

I am excited to be able to inform you about the Teen Retreat for 2009. This year we are having a Mission trip/Teen Retreat. We are going to be helping a church planter with their ministry as well as having fun and growing as a group. The dates for this years retreat are July 26th through 31st. The retreat will begin on Sunday afternoon, and we will be back on Friday afternoon. The cost is yet to be determined, but I wanted to let you know the dates so you could clear the calendar for this wonderful event.

The reason I am not announcing the location of the retreat is simple. The teens didn't want me to. We will be playing a similar game as we did last year for them to be able to ascertain the location of our Mission trip/Retreat. And once again the one who gets the answer right will get to go for half price as last year!

This will be your home for any information regarding the Mission trip/Retreat. I will post all new information here, and I will post all forms that need to be filled out here as well. Also, while we are gone we will be posting pictures from the trip on this site. I would suggest visiting this blog at least once a week to make sure that you stay up to date on all new information that comes out regarding the trip. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the trip, and I look forward to giving more information in the coming weeks!!!
