Winter Retreat

January 31–February 1

Our Impact Ministry team has been hard at work planning a can’t-miss two day event for all middle school students. During the Impact Winter Retreat students will be involved in multiple facets of team building games, worship, learning and reflection focused on our theme this year “Who’s Your One?”. This will be an ongoing theme throughout our spring semester that will focus and teach our students the importance & purpose of evangelism and giving them the tools to do so. Registration cost is $35 until December 31 and then the ticket price will rise to $40 until the deadline of January 16.



Wednesdays, August 14–November 20 (No Meeting October 16), 6:30–8:00 p.m., Impact Room (E226)

At Midweek, Common Ground and Impact students will meet together and have the opportunity to grow in their relationship with Jesus, their friends, and their adult small group leaders. Each week we meet for fellowship, worship, teaching, and small group time. Small groups are divided by grade and gender to discuss the message from the evening, build friendships, and pray together. Afterwards, we eat great snacks and hang out. For more information, email students@firstevan.org.

Impact and Common Ground have chosen the theme “Eyes, Hands, Feet” for the upcoming school year. Throughout the year, we will be looking into how Jesus saw us, served us, and pursued us. In light of that, we will also be going deep into how we can respond to Jesus with our eyes, hands, and feet. Jake and Eli cannot wait for an amazing year with the middle school and high school students at First Evan.
