Saturday, February 23, 11am

Playing basketball requires stamina, commitment, and practice. It is a team sport where teammates work together and coaches guide players to victory. Maybe there are some lessons that we can learn from basketball that also apply to the practice of faith.

 Families of preschoolers, children, and youth are invited to join us on center court – that is Highland Hills – for a day retreat focused on faith and family. We will look at how we can pass on faith to our children and make sure their head is in the game. We will “enter his courts with praise” as we spend time worshipping together. Finally, we will truly experience the game of basketball as we end the afternoon cheering on the Mercer Bears from the private box at Hawkins Arena. 

 Full Court Press Family Retreat will take place on Saturday, February 23 beginning at 11:00 a.m. This retreat is for preschoolers, children, youth, and parents. During the retreat, there will be times for the different age groups to engage in separate spiritual formation and times when we will come together for an intergenerational experience.

 The retreat will begin at Highland Hills at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be provided, and there will be childcare for preschoolers. The retreat will end at 3:00 p.m. when we will make our way to Mercer for the 4:00 p.m. basketball game. There is no cost for the retreat, but sign-up is required. Call the church office or sign-up below to make your reservations by Wednesday, February 20.
