The Schedule

Friday: 7 pm Session & Game!
Saturday: 12 pm & 2 pm Sessions & Activity!
Sunday: 12 pm Session & Wrap Up!

Our 11th annual Tapestry Fall Retreat! Join us as we partner with fellow Presbyterian churches for a weekend filled with a focus on God to help reorient our daily lives.

This is an opportunity for youth to get to know youth from other Presbyterian churches, engage in activities that help them be self reflective, dive into scripture, find space to look for God at work, do activities on your own or with your family, and come back together to share, all from the comfort of their own couch. Just kidding, seriously we are going to get you off your couch and doing fun things.

This weekend is open to all youth, so invite your friends!
