Do you miss HT conferences during the year? Attend one of our many regional retreats! Hosted at a church or a camp, these one- or two-day events will fill you with all of the great things you get during a summer conference, but in a more intimate way. Picture the sanctuary of your local church filled with teenagers who are eager for the organ to begin the opening lines of the liturgy or their favorite hymns, are listening intently as they learn how their Lutheran faith applies to their lives and relationships, and laughing as they horse around playing games and getting to know other youth from the area. When you attend a Higher Things retreat, you challenge youth to Dare to be Lutheran, inspiring them to deeper faith and love for their neighbors.

Find a retreat near you to be refilled with the same reverent worship, robust teaching, and playful fun that Higher Things delivers at summer conferences, but in a smaller way. See you there!

Who Am I?

MARCH 24-25, 2023

The Christian's Identity in a World Full of Labels

Who are you? The world has a bunch of answers to this question. However, the answers from the world are nothing more than temporary labels. Yes, the world is busy putting labels on everyone and everything. The only problem is that the world can't make up its mind. Culture right now is very confused and struggling. It hurts to be slapped with a label, only to have the same label ripped off in the next moment.  

Join Pastors Richard, Walla, and Woodside, as they present the various labels that the world attempts to place on you, why these labels are temporary and false, and, finally, hear about your true identity in Christ. Yes, hear the good news of who you are - your identity in Christ is not a temporary label but an absolute certainty!

$50 per person covers all expenses for the retreat at St Paul’s, including all classes, food, activities, and lodging at the church. Boys and girls will be housed in separate areas of the church, and attendees should bring sleeping bags and pillows. There are no shower facilities, however bathrooms are located throughout the church. The retreat will begin at 6pm on Friday and end at 3pm on Saturday.
