Middle School Retreat Recap

Thanks for your prayers and support during and leading up to our amazing Middle School Retreat this past weekend! We had an absolute blast, couldn’t have asked for better weather, and grew closer to each other and to Christ.

Making a great “First Impression”


We live in a world of distractions.  Studies show that most people spend approximately 7-10 hours a day in front of a screen. When we are distracted, we are not fully present. I challenge you to engage people around you at church.  Learn someone’s name, get to know something about them, and welcome them to God’s House!

We invite YOU to make a great First Impression on behalf of Jesus Christ and join one of our First Impressions teams. We’re always welcoming new members to our ministry! For more information, contact Sheila Pippin, Director of First Impressions at 881.6800, extension 230, [email protected], or 417.861.0861.
