Local weekend retreat for high school students


NOVEMBER 11–13, 2022


Have you started to think about your future? College? Job? Relationships?

Do you ever wonder “Why am I here?” “Do my decisions really matter?”

IO WKND is a local weekend retreat for high school students where we are going to explore the answer to this giant question — Why am I here? We know the answer to this question will challenge you in the best possible way. And we can’t wait to talk about it — because we believe you were meant for something more.

All campuses will be meeting for 3 sessions at North Point Community Church on the weekend of November 11. This is an event you don’t want to miss.
