“Let the little children come to me. Do not stop them; for it is such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.”

Luke 18:16-17

Luke 18 is a weekend long retreat inviting 7th graders into the Church—to help them see that they are not only the future of our Church, but they are also the Church right now. The program welcomes 7th graders (also referred to as “Lukers”) into the Church by helping them experience God and His Love. Through high-energy games, skits, songs, personal sharing, and a series of talks given by high school students, the “Lukers” are encouraged to have fun and grow in their faith. The weekend offers the opportunity to experience God’s love on a more personal level, and the “Lukers” are challenged to share that love with those around them. 

The weekend is October 13-15, 2023.  All meals will be eaten at Holy Redeemer Church where the retreat will be held. The cost of the retreat is $103.00 to cover the cost of meals, supplies, T-shirts etc. If for some reason the fee is a problem, please contact me-financial reasons should not prevent your child from attending. The retreat will start on Friday evening and conclude on Sunday.

The weekend for LUKE 18 is October 13-15, 2023!
