Youth Retreats

There are plenty of youth retreats happening throughout the year. These are fun opportunities for youth to go away for a weekend and have fun as well as grow in their faith. Some of this trips are broken down by grade, while others are open to the whole group. There are also Parrish wide retreats that everybody is encouraged to come join. Scroll down below to find out more about these retreats!

SNOWFEST!

Every February all youth (6th grade through 12th) and their parents are invited to come join us up in the mountains as we go skiing, sledding, and tubing on a crazy fun filled weekend. And we don’t always need snow for Snowfest. If the weather isn’t cooperating there is still plenty to do in the Shenandoah valley, and it’s still a blast! Sign up early for this one because it fills up fast.
