Spiritual Life Retreat
Each year, students 9th-12th grade are given the opportunity to experience our High School Spiritual Life Retreat. This is a three day, two night trip to a Spring Arbor University Campus, Michindoh Conference Center, located in Hillsdale, MI. The retreat takes place the first week of school every year, and is a wonderful time for students to make new friends and renew friendships from the previous year.
We view this time as crucial for setting the spiritual tone for the new school year. A special speaker and music leaders are invited, and a spiritual life theme is given to the week. Each student is encouraged to introspect on what their own spiritual goals are for the school year, and to make a commitment to their own spiritual growth. Several sessions are given to bring students together for worship and teaching.
Students are also given ample free time to enjoy the outdoors.
Michindoh Conference Center offers a peaceful, natural setting for retreats and conferences. It is located on 250 acres of forested rolling hills with streams, wetlands and spring-fed Weatherwood Lake. Numerous recreational options including a multi-court indoor gym, a 320 ft. waterslide, boating, high ropes course, team building, paint ball, sports courts, fishing, swimming, and target sports make Michindoh the ideal place for our students to have fun and make memories.
