Our retreats are not an end in themselves. What do we mean by this? Our goal in the ReFormed Student Ministry is not to merely entertain our students from 7-12th grade and hope the church picks up our slack after graduation. NO! We are proactive in giving our students opportunities to serve with one another, have fellowship with one another, and to love God more by teaching, reflection, and just engaging in relationship! We cultivate this by having annual retreats and events that bring our students together with the intentions of living out our vision:
ReFormed exists to bring students into the visible body of Christ, where they are nurtured to love God and all people in order to be equipped for the joyful service of disciple making in their local, national, and international neighborhood.
Fall Semester: the ReFormed Student Ministry teams up with other local churches for a middle school and high school retreat!
The Middle School: Middle School students will be going to Camp Bethel in Gaston, SC. The cost is typically under $120.00.
The High School: High School students will be going to White Oak Conference Center in Winnsboro, SC. The cost is typically under $120.00
Spring Semester: Spring-Break always brings in new life and of course Carowinds Theme Park Trip! Let us know ASAP if your student would like to attend so we can make sure to reserve a spot.
In addition to this we have two major mission trips a year (see our missions page) as well as various service projects and fellowship events throughout the year. If you have any ideas of what we ought to do, or you have a burden to serve or want to fire up your own mission trip please contact Trevora@chapinpres.com! Our goal is to equip the saints for ministry and mission in all of life how can we serve you?
