This Middle School retreat has been so much fun, year after year after year after year! We are thrilled to return to Tulsa, OK for the CIY Believe Tour Conference—specifically designed for middle school students.
This is a terrific opportunity for Christ Community students and friends to grow deeper in faith in Jesus Christ, continue to build deep Christ-centered friendships, and have some amazing fun on a weekend retreat!
We will leave midday (around noon) on Friday (January 24) from The Leawood Campus of Christ Community on school buses headed for Tulsa, OK. Yes, students will need to be be dismissed from school early that day. We will spend Friday evening and Saturday day at Believe (staying overnight at Tulsa’s Embassy Suites). Saturday evening, after the Believe conference concludes (4:00pm), we have a night filled with fun and fellowship with our group. Sunday morning we pack the buses and head home, ready for pick-up at The Leawood Campus early Sunday afternoon. More details will be communicated as the date of the retreat approaches.
WHO CAN GO?
All middle school students (grades 6-8) from any of our Christ Community campuses and their friends are invited! This is a great opportunity for students to reach out to friends who do not attend Christ Community (or any church for that matter) and invite them to come along and learn more about Jesus!
WHAT IS BELIEVE?
“Believe is a high-energy weekend event for [middle school] students only. It is structured specifically for [middle school] students and is packed with powerful worship, intense drama and teaching from God's Word.” The event will include a variety of middle school specific activities and experiences—amazing music, messages from middle school specialists, experiential learning stations, artists, and small group time. Please check out the Believe Conference website for even more details.
This covers transportation, conference registration, hotel, activities, and meals. It does not include personal munchies, Believe t-shirts, puppies, and/or souvenirs. Students will need to bring extra-cash for these (no more than $50, please). We realize this is a bunch of money. However, we do “believe” (pun intended) this is a great weekend and terrific opportunity for your middle school student. If money is an issue, please contact us—we have scholarship money available. Please, don’t let the cost prevent your student from participating.
