This fall the theme for Psalm 78 is Mixtape! During this year's retreat, youth will encounter God’s Word in a new and more profound way. They will break open the Old and New Testaments and explore the Gospels, seeing that God’s Word written in the past is just as good, true, and beautiful today as it was then. With tools to better understand Scripture, the youth can leave this retreat equipped to pray more with the Bible and share God’s Word with those they encounter.
What is Psalm 78? Psalm 78 is a two day retreat open to all middle schoolers of HNOJ. Join us as we get away from everyday life and take a break to reset our relationship with God. Whether you’ve gone on 10 retreats or never gone on one, Psalm 78 is perfect for you! We’ll have games, food, time with friends and the opportunity to learn how to pray and see the Holy Spirit in our lives. Led by our incredible core team of high school students, the middle schoolers who attend this retreat are sure to witness just how exciting life is when we stay connected to the Church.
Who is it for? All 6th, 7th, and 8th graders of HNOJ (guests of HNOJ are always welcome)!
