Ski & Shop 2023 "Belong"

It is that time of year! Our annual skiing and shopping trip has arrived! We are so excited to make this trip again with the theme "Belong". How do we belong with each other in community (like friends, classmates, and others)?

How do we know we belong with Jesus? Such great questions! So with that we make this trip leaving early February 18th and head up to Wild Mountain Ski Resort where we spend time together learning ski or shredding                                         the different slopes, and tubing. (Don't worry we have a second option for those who maybe don't think skiing is the best for them, like arcades, and bowling).

After skiing we will spend our evening and night at New Life Academy school in Woodbury, MN. We will have a time of games, worship, and a special message from our friend Ben Konfrst. Following morning we will start our                                      day with church, then we head to Mall of America to explore the stores, rides, and good food.

We plan on arrive back February 19th by 7:30 pm.
