Pray! Prayer is powerful! Please pray for our teens, and the adults who volunteer!


Volunteer! We always need adults to help chaperone events, help with retreats, or drive to events! If you have time to help out-please let me know!


Bake! Baked goods are the best! We have food or snacks at every event, so if you can share your baking talents, I know the teens would appreciate your sweet treats!


Donate! We are in need of bean bag chairs, board games, & monetary donations for scholarships. Scholarships help defray the cost of retreats and mission trips.
