New Beginnings #11

February 16 - February 18

New Beginnings (NB) is a renewal retreat for youth in grades 6-8. It is led by high school youth, and supervised by adults. NB is a weekend that explores friendships, family, and faith and helps participants grow in their love of themselves, others and our Lord Jesus Christ. During the weekend, participants meet peers from across the diocese, enjoy skits, listen to talks, and participate in small group activities and discussions. These activities focus on self, friends, parents, siblings, school, God’s love, prayer and the church. Free time is built in for youth to have an opportunity to fellowship with their newfound friends. Participants may attend NB each year that they remain in middle school.

Participants in NB do not have to be Episcopalians but must be recommended through an Episcopal Church. Participants do not need a sponsor for the weekend; there will be adults on team to help supervise the weekend. The registration fee for the weekend is $140. Financial assistance is available; please contact the NB Lay Director, Angela Boyd or the Diocesan Director of Youth Programs, Samantha Marxsen.
