Middle School Day – Mar 6th, 2021

This year Winter Peak will be held at the Littleton Church of Christ. The cost of our one-day retreat is $40 per person.  Simply fill out the form and turn it in to your Youth Leader by Feb 24th.

Theme & Speaker

The theme for Winter Peak is “Emerge”! Like a bear coming out of hibernation, we are all starting to come out of a long time of isolation—socially, maybe physically, and most likely spiritually. At Winter Peak we’ll talk about what it will look like as we Emerge.

 

 

While Winter Peak will look different than past years, we will still have several of the things you look forward to each year:

·         Great Worship together

·         Challenging Breakout classes

·         Time with your Youth Group

·         Chances to get to know students from other YG’s

 

We hope you’ll join us all at Winter Peak 2021!

Goodbye 2020!

 Hey, All!


They say that hindsight is 2020. Well, I am glad to say that 2020 is now hindsight. 

Yes, last year was crazy. 

Yes, lots of things are still up in the air.

But we have a lot to look forward to and I am so excited to see what 2021 brings us. As for me and the Family Ministry at Westview, I am praying for clarity, bonding, and love. 

And I am praying for you. I am praying for your heart. I am praying for your soul. Most of all, I am praying that this is the year you engage Jesus.

So that is our theme, this year: ENGAGE 2021.



Look for major announcements soon.
