Retreats

  • Due to current COVID restrictions, we will not travel on retreats until further notice. Below is an example of our normal retreat schedule.

  • Asbury Hills Fall Retreat (7th-12th grades)  
Our biggest spiritual retreat of the year is held the weekend before Thanksgiving at Asbury Hills Camp and Retreat Center. Together, we will have the opportunity to renew our relationships with God through worship, small groups, and       retreating in nature! *Registration for our 2021 trip will open in August*
  • Revolution (7th-12th grades) 
Revolution is an annual youth conference sponsored by SCMYP in late January at Township Auditorium. Students will come together with over 2,000 other youth for worship, committing their lives to Christ, and answering God’s call. Foundation students will have a lock-in style sleep over at St. John’s over the weekend and we will travel back and forth to Columbia for worship sessions. *Registration for 2022 will open in November*
  • Ski Trip 2022 (7th-12th grades) 
Ski Trip came back by popular demand in 2020! Our next trip is planned for 2022 in Winter Place, West Virginia. Join us for a weekend with your favorite people in Fellowship and hitting the slopes! *Registration will open in December*
  • Lake Junaluska Music and Worship Arts Week (7th-12th grades) 
Music & Worship Arts Week is an event highlighting the arts, worship, education, and renewal in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina at Lake Junaluska. It is designed for all worship leaders of all ages: musicians, artists, dancers, actors and pastors. http://www.umfellowship.org/?page=MWAWHome
  • Immerse (7th-8th grades) 
Immerse is designed for Christian teenagers who have a desire to GO DEEPER IN THEIR FAITH as they strengthen their relationship with Christ. Immerse incorporates powerful worship, spiritual conversations, and Christian fellowship to strengthen our relationship with God and each other. Immerse offers an opportunity for local churches and youth leaders to inspire students to become young disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world (scmyp.org/immerse/).
