Spiritual Life Advance (affectionately known as SLA) is our annual fall retreat for youth ministry. Each November, we escape from our hectic and busy fall schedules and travel to a local camp. This retreat allows us to pause in the midst of our crazy lives to learn, reflect, pray, worship, and study together. SLA is a favorite event of many of our students. It is always a special and sacred time. We unplug and take a step away from our everyday lives to be still.
SLA is a study retreat, and the weekend has four major sessions. The sessions are Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday night, and Sunday morning. Each session consists of worship led by the youth band, a study session taught by a pastor, and small group discussion. We also have free time and a special worship service on Saturday night. Usually, we squeeze in a talent show or dance party, too! SLA is an extraordinary weekend, where fun and fellowship come together in a unique way. We celebrate the truths of the Gospel while challenging ourselves and one another to grow in the love of Jesus. And having time around a campfire is always good.
