Jesus says, “Abide in My Word, and you are truly My disciples.” You know it’s important for Christians to be “in the Word,” but how? The surprising answer has been in front of you all your life: in church. Lutherans have a treasure we sometimes take for granted, a treasure that gives us more Bible on any given Sunday than most Christians will ever hear. That treasure is our services, which are almost nothing but the Bible, through and through. 

Come hear Chaplain Sean Daenzer, Director of Worship for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, open up the Scriptures in the most likely of places—your Sunday morning routine—and learn how everything in our hymns and services is causing the Word of Christ to dwell richly in you for life. 

$40 per person covers all Friday night snacks, Saturday breakfast, lunch and snacks, all presentations and activities, and overnight lodging at Immanuel Lutheran Church. This retreat is intended for confirmation youth, so any youth entering into or currently in confirmation are welcome no matter the grade or age. Groups should register online or RSVP by July 31st.

Picture the sanctuary filled with teenagers, eager for the organ to begin the opening lines of the liturgy or their favorite hymns, 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. This Retreat will give youth and adults a glimpse of what happens at a Higher Things Youth Conference and what a typical conference day looks like.
