Join us at the Fall Retreat! October 18 – October 20, 2019

We will join hundreds of other students from campuses around Michigan in a weekend where we’ll be talking about why we matter to God, why we matter to the church, and how we can live a life that matters.

The Fall Retreat is an awesome opportunity to get away from the day-to-day grind and experience a weekend filled with engaging teachings, dynamic worship, the epic fall retreat olympics, and lots of opportunities to make new friends. We’d love to have you join us!

Where are we going & how will I get there?

FaHoLo Conference Center is 75 minutes from Kalamazoo, depending on traffic.  We will arrange rides and carpool together through H2O Teams. If you don’t know what H2O Team you are a part of, don’t worry we will find a spot for you! You will then get an email with carpool information the week of the retreat.
