All young adults are invited to participate in our annual spring retreat. We will be retreating in a large event cabin on Big Bear Lake in Big Bear, California.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why do we retreat? Young Adults are being pulled in a dozen different directions all the time. Truth can become blurry and pressures can really begin to weigh in. Camps and Retreats can afford young people the opportunity to step away from the distractions to think clearly and experience Christ in a fresh way. Jesus sets for us this example, as He would often retreat to desolate and quiet places to seek the Father and pray (Mk 1:35). Retreat is a high concentration of community, discipleship and fun!

Why should I attend the retreat? When we ask young people "when did Jesus begin to make the most sense to you? "The answer we almost always get is some form of camp, retreat or conference! For many, these events become the beginning of deeper faith and God-sized dreams! Even when we think about the beginning of our own faith, we are usually drawn to memories of specific environments that afforded us unhurried time to think, breathe and worship. Usually, those spaces included specific people who were bent on showing us more of Jesus. These retreats create that unforgettable environment and includes those faces that will forever become a part of the future faith stories of our young people.

Who can attend? All current young adults ages 18-29 are welcome to attend.

What does the cost of the retreat cover? The cost of the retreat covers just about everything: 6 meals, lodging, transportation, all activities and retreat keepsakes.

What is the cut-off date for retreat registration? Early bird registration ends on April 30th. The cut-off date is Sunday, May 12th, and there are limited spots available so sign up fast!

Are there any retreat discounts? We would hate for finances to discourage any young person from attending the retreat. If you would benefit from a partial scholarship, please contact Pastor Mike at mgentry@tcotw.org

What are the sleeping arrangements ? All attendees will be sharing gender specific rooms within a large conference cabin.

Can I drive up or partially attend the event? Unfortunately, due to limited availability we cannot allow people to partially attend this event. All people who are attending must make plans to meet at the departure time of 12:30pm at the church OR MUST CHECK-IN NO LATER THAN 6pm at the cabin on the night of the 25th.

Where can I find a packing list and general schedule? We have all of those details in the Registration Packet which can be downloaded during online registration or you can get a physical copy from our group gatherings.

I don’t know anyone and I’m nervous about attending, what can I do? Going to camp can be intimidating because you may not know anyone, or maybe you are unsure and nervous about what it will be like. I have never seen an environment create community like camps and retreats. If you have ever made great friendships at school or on a sports team, it is likely because you spent concentrated time in those environments. Our Spring and Fall retreats provide a similar concentration of time in order for friendships to happen and ultimately these events become a springboard into building lasting and godly friendships. It may just be time to jump in! We are proactive in making sure young people acclimate well to new environments and set our events up to foster new friendships.

Spiritlife

Spirit Life Class

June 3rd - June 10th, 2018

When you gave up doing life on your own - when you embraced the way of Jesus - God gave you His Spirit to empower you, guide you, and help you make a difference in the world. This two-week class will help you overcome sin and walk faithfully with God by learning more about the Holy Spirit's work in your life and starting to practice important spiritual habits. We'll also focus on how to become an agent of transformation in the lives of others through powerful manifestations of God's Spirit, such as prophecy, words of knowledge, speaking in tongues, and gifts of healing.

Spiritual Habits

How do we become more loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled? We can't seem to make ourselves better by will-power alone. However, we feel compelled to do something. Learn more about how the Holy Spirit shapes us and begin practicing spiritual habits like reading the Bible, praying, and connecting with others.

Spiritual Gifts

God has a purpose for your life - a purpose bigger than yourself. You can be so immersed in God's Spirit that you overflow with God's power and grace, changing the lives of others all around you. Learn more about the baptism of the Holy Spirit and begin helping others by speaking God's Word into their lives, sharing God's gift of healing, and relaying God's miraculous power.

Time and Location

We'll meet after the 11am service (at 1:30pm) for two-weeks in a row. You're welcome to eat in the class, so go grab some lunch but return before we start. We'll also have light refreshments available. Location is TBD.

Newlife

New Life Reception

June 12th, 2018

This 90-minute gathering is a great opportunity to solidify your decision to trust Jesus. We'll have time to talk with others, provide you with some free resources, enjoy coffee and dessert, and learn a little more about being baptized. Whether you've been baptized or not, if you recently asked Jesus to be Lord of your life, we encourage you to attend.

Your Spiritual Journey

Enjoy some coffee and dessert while getting to know others! You'll meet a few other people in starting or re-starting their journey with Jesus, hear from a few of our church leaders, and find out more about God's purpose for your life.

Being Baptized in Water

The first step in trusting Jesus with our lives is being baptized in water. It's a sign to others that we've made the decision for real - that we're ready to tell others we belong to Jesus. If you haven't been baptized in water, we'll cover everything you'll want to know before you're baptized!

Location

We'll be meeting in the Community Life room, located with the church offices at the corner of Sherman Way and Tyrone. Please park in the main lot (entering from Tyrone and Sherman Way, it will be the large, fenced lot on your right).

Be sure to arrive on time so you don't miss out!

Why do we retreat? Students are being pulled in a dozen different directions all school year long. Truth can become blurry and pressures can really begin to weigh in. Camps and Retreats can afford students the opportunity to step away from the distractions to think clearly and experience Christ in a fresh way. Jesus sets for us this example, as He would often retreat to desolate and quiet places to seek the Father and pray (Mk 1:35). If we have one hour of quality investment time with your child each week at Rooted (say roughly 50 hours a year), we will nearly match that time together in just the few days we spend at camp. Camp is a high concentration of community, discipleship and fun!

Why should I send my child to camp? When I ask students "so when did Jesus begin to make the most sense to you? "The answer I almost always get is either winter camp or summer camp! For many, camp becomes the beginning of deeper faith and God-sized dreams! Even when we think about the beginning of our own faith, we are usually drawn to memories of specific environments that afforded us unhurried time to think, breathe and worship. Usually, those spaces included specific people who were bent on showing us more of Jesus. Camp creates that unforgettable environment and includes those faces that will forever become a part of the future faith stories of our students.

How old does my child have to be to attend? All current middle school students are welcome to attend.

What does the cost of the camp cover? The cost of camp covers just about everything: meals, lodging, transportation, all activities and retreat keepsakes.

What is the cut-off date for retreat registration? The cut-off date is Sunday, June 11th, so be sure to sign-up fast!

Are there any retreat discounts? We would hate for finances to discourage any student from attending camp. If your family would benefit from a partial scholarship, please contact Pastor Mike at mgentry@tcotw.org

What will students do while at camp? Camp is created to engage students with the gospel in ways they understand. Students will enjoy nightly rallies, high-energy worship, small group discipleship, tons of fun and other special retreat exclusive elements!

What are the sleeping arrangements ? Students will be staying in cabins. They will be assigned according to their age and gender. Each cabin will also contain 1-2 adult leaders.

Can my child partially attend? Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate partial attendance for Camp.

Can my child pick who they want to room with? Students cannot pick who they want in their room. You can imagine trying to accommodate everyone according to his or her rooming preference becomes exceptionally difficult. At the same time, we try our best to organize the sleeping arrangements according to who we know will want to room together. The only exception is if a student brings a friend who does not attend Youth Group. We will be sure to accommodate them in their rooming preference.

How will my child be transported to winter retreat? Currently we will be transporting all students in a combination of buses and/or vans. All vehicles will only be driven by The Church On The Way approved and responsible volunteers.

What will my child eat while away? Your child will be fed three square meals a day and provided with all necessary nutrition.

Where can I find a packing list and general schedule? We have all of those details in the Registration Packet which can be downloaded during online registration or you can get a physical copy from our youth group gatherings.

How will my child be supervised? Each student will have an assigned adult mentor who will be responsible for overseeing their cabin group. All adult mentors have been background checked. In addition, we feel all of our adult mentors have a strong calling to serve students. Our aim is more than just supervision, but discipleship.

How can I see what’s happening while my child is away? A leader will periodically send text updates but you can also check our “Parents of TCOTW Middle School Students” Facebook Group for photos and updates! If you haven’t been added, please let us know!

Most often, the same students that are nearly dragged to winter camps are the ones we have to drag home to leave!
