What Time Is It?   Ecclesiastes 3

The last few years have changed our lives in ways we could not imagine or plan. We have all experienced life events that may have affected our plans, focus, well-being, and possibly our families, friends, and education. All of this leaves us asking such things as "What is going on" followed by a bunch of "why" questions and trying to sum it all up with "How did I get here" or  "How do I get out of here"?

What “Time is it” for you? Where are you in this “SEASON” of your life? Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11, starts with saying there is a TIME for EVERYTHING and a SEASON for EVERY activity under the heavens. Join us at the 2023 Winter Youth Retreat as we unpack this text and give you the tools to connect, process, and hear what the Lord is saying to YOU, and then…. leave with an understanding, encouragement, and His promises to guide you through this TIME. We WILL get through this together!!
