A retreat for high school students and their leaders, centered on worship, leadership development, and small group discussion while learning about PC(USA)’s Matthew 25 vision.
This new event, called Keep Awake!, will focus on the tenets of PC(USA)’s Matthew 25 initiative: dismantling structural racism, eradicating systemic poverty, and building congregational vitality. The name, which comes from Matthew 25:13, was chosen by the planning team to emphasize the urgency of this work. It is our hope that this will become an annual offering at Massanetta Springs.
Keep Awake! will be a retreat for high school student participants with an emphasis on leadership development. The program will include young adult leadership, similar to Middle School Conference’s model of high school students guiding and supporting middle school participants. In the coming years, we will be able to raise students up through the program, first attending as participants and then coming back after high school to offer leadership and mentorship.
