Experiencing It All

Just as getting ready to travel means stuffing your dufflebag with a toothbrush and a bar of soap, so discovering all the adventures on this journey of life requires preparation. Redeemer youth activities are intentionally designed to help middle school and high school students gain an understanding of God’s amazing love for us and his plan that we follow and serve Jesus. 

The big picture:

  • Teaching and Training | Confirmation, Sunday classes, Bible studies, Youth Training Conferences
  • Service and Mission | Mission trips, Rake and Run, Second Harvest, Salvation Army bell ringing, Feed My Starving Children, children’s programming volunteers, Bible School volunteers
  • Fellowship and Community | Vikings parties, bonfires, softball, movie nights, Sonshine
  • Prayer and Worship | Youth Prayer Room, Neighborhood Prayer Walks, 30-Hour Famine
  • Big Events | Winter Retreat, Covenant Pines Bible Camp, C.H.I.C.

At CHIC, lives are changed as students are inspired to dive deeper in their faith together through a week of worship, transformation learning and fun! The cost of CHIC is $649 per student. CHIC Applications are due April 18, 2018, with a $100 deposit and the final balance is due May 18. Students may also use funds from their youth account to offset the cost.
