Every day we need to recharge and then there are times when a few more hours are needed. The Women's retreat on September 15-17 is about leaving your responsibilities for a weekend and "recharging" with a group of women. Our speaker this year is Sherry Mortenson, Director of Ephraim's Refuge. › Learn More

“Up until Friday night of Breakaway retreat, he was not planning on attending but”
This is a young man who has never been to our youth group or church before. He is a friend of one of our students who was attending Breakaway. Up until Friday night of Breakaway, he was not planning on attending and didn't have any interest. That Friday evening, he came to Hoover with his friend just to hang out and watch the activities, but during registration he asked if it was too late for him to participate. An hour later, he was registered and had his stuff ready for the weekend. He had a great time playing basketball and had opportunity to meet and get to know those in our group. As a result, when his friend asked him to come to youth group, his response was "Sure, I already know a bunch of people who go there - might as well". He has come every Wednesday and has attended 2 of our church services.
