Fall Youth Retreat Oct. 17-19 at Riverside

    This year's Fabulous Fall Youth Retreat will be held Friday, October 17 to Sunday, October 19 at the historic and legendary Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp in Story City! “No way!” you say!  “What is it, and where can I get mine?” you ask! The answer: all youth 7-12th grade are invited to join in this epic weekend event. The cost is a mere $10 per youth for an entire weekend of great food, great fun, and impactful, and life-changing fellowship with the Lord and fellow youth. 

    Although the retreat is primarily for kids and their friends, parents are invited to join in the fun if they wish. We just ask for advance notification of attendees so we can provide enough food and transportation. Please contact Ben Johnson for more information (benjaminandrewjohnson@gmail.com or 515-290-4243).  Be there...you won’t want to miss it!
