Youth and Parent Fall Preview Breakfast
We begin our school year programming with a big Parent Breakfast in the Family Life Hall. During this meeting, fall calendars will be handed out and we discuss the exciting events ahead for the year.
For Mid High Students
Where: Marietta FUMC When: FebruaryDiscovery is a 43-hour spiritual formation retreat for mid-high students at Marietta FUMC. This retreat provides an awesome opportunity for 6th-8th graders to not only learn about but experience God’s love. The senior highs, along with adults and college helpers, lead the weekend. Mid High Students will engage in worship, mission projects, and adventure at MFUMC and will be divided by ages and gender into host homes for housing at night. Our experience with Discovery Weekend is that it’s fun (mechanical bulls, lip sync battles, crazy competitions) and holy at the same time! This Weekend creates an environment in which mid-highs can better listen and be aware of God’s presence. The results have been pretty amazing. Also, it’s super powerful to watch senior highs pour time and energy into the younger students while serving.
Discovery weekend is a grand celebration of God’s love, and this specific retreat is designed to include as much of MFUMC’s church family as possible:
*Senior Highs will work with small groups, games, setup and breakdown, and share their faith throughout the weekend.
*Adults will share their gift of presence while serving or leading one of the awesome Discovery teams, and praying for the weekend.*Sunday School classes and small groups of the church can provide meals, prayer support, snacks, and supplies for the weekend.
