It's that time again! The Memorial Day Retreat, also known as MDR is a high octane youth retreat for students grade 6-12. From the Core Student Ministry of The Gathering Place we are pleased to offer this opportunity to get away, grow with friends, have some good old fashioned competition, and most importantly, grow in our relationship with the Lord.

We are praying for each and everyone of you as you prepare to join us on this retreat.
