Some of you read those three words and an excitement comes over you. Some of you read them and think: that’s the best they can come up with? (the answer is yes.) And some of you read those words and there is no response. You see – your response and exposure to previous retreats and church events are inner mingled. That’s just one minor example of having a worldview. A worldview can be summarized as the glasses through which you see life. That includes God, society, the future and even retreat information. This retreat we are going to examine what your worldview is and how you can best love and communicate with those who may share a different one. And maybe – just maybe – we can get you excited about next year’s retreat name!

They are infamous for their football games, late night chats, dodgeball, card games, powerful worship, basketball, great discussions over hot chocolate, messages that cause action, time to chill with friends and opportunities to make some new relationships. In addition – Geneva has some of the greatest facilities along the shores of Lake Michigan.
